Types Of Injuries That Our Law Firm Act For

Due to the changes in law, our personal injury lawyers can only represent people for serious injuries when we work on a contingency basis. You are free to retain our personal injury lawyers hourly for non-serious injuries. For example, serious personal injuries include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Serious Soft Tissue Injuries (WAD III)
  • TMJ (jaw) problems
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Any permanent impairment
  • Permanent disabilities
  • Fatal accidents
  • Wrongful deaths

Unless very serious, the law caps soft tissue injury recovery amount. At times, it is not practical to hire a lawyer for these cases. We do remind people to ensure that they know the full extent of their personal injuries before deciding if it is worth pursuing. Never settle on an injury claim without knowing the full extent of your injuries. Please Note: We also help people sued after causing an accident.

Why Contact A Calgary Personal Injury Law Firm Immediately

In Alberta, you have two years from when you knew (or should have known) that you have a claim. If you miss this important date, you may lose the ability to receive the compensation you deserve. No personal injury lawyer is able to help after this time. This two year period is known as a limitation period. Other limitation periods exist depending on where or how the accident happened. Further, exceptions for minor children in accidents exist. Some limitations are measured in months so make sure you call today! These limitation periods are set by the Alberta government by legislation. It is very important that you see your personal injury lawyer with enough prior time to make sure that they can protect your interests.

Legal Fees For Suing For Personal Injury Damages

In most situations, our Calgary based personal injury law firm will work on a contingency basis. This means that payment of our fees happens out of the amount that we collect at the end of the file. You will not have to pay ongoing payments for the legal work that we do. Lastly, due to this structure, you need not give your personal injury lawyer a retainer (money) upfront.
