PERSONAL INJURY SERVICES
Personal injury law encompasses all legal disputes arising when a person is harmed due to another’s negligence. In many cases, the responsible party’s insurance will have to compensate the victim for any damages suffered. Damages may include medical expenses, lost wages, short or long-term disability, expenses for alternative transportation, emotional pain and suffering, and wrongful death.
IS YOUR CLAIM VALID
Certain elements must be present in order for a personal injury claim to be valid. If your case is to be successful, the at-fault party must have:
- had a duty of care to act with reasonable caution; and
- breached that duty of care;
and the victim (you) must have:
- been injured as a result of that breach; and
- suffered actual damages.
WHEN YOU SHOULD CALL A LAWYER
If you believe that another’s negligence has caused you harm, it is in your best interest to consult with an experienced Alberta personal injury lawyer today.
At Roberts Law, our goal is always to avoid the expensive, overwhelming experience of a trial, and settle out of court. But if a reasonable settlement offer cannot be reached, we are ready to fight for your rights in court.
Following a personal injury, the last thing anyone needs is the added stress of dealing with insurance companies and at-fault parties, massive amounts of paperwork, and determining how to gather relevant evidence. Furthermore, with no legal background, it is virtually impossible to know how to accurately calculate your damages to reach a fair settlement. Insurance companies know this, and they will do everything in their power to pay as little as possible. At Roberts Law, we refuse to sit back and watch while the big insurance companies take advantage of our clients.
MAKING A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM
If you have been injured due to the negligence of another, you may be able to obtain compensation by filing a personal injury claim. The process of making a claim varies based on the type of claim.
If you have been injured in an auto accident, for example, you should a) call 911, b) obtain the insurance and contact information of all involved parties, c) ask witnesses for their contact information, d) take pictures of any contributing factors and visible injuries, e) seek immediate medical attention. and f) contact your lawyer.
