Type of Accident
Calgary Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury in Canada. According to the Calgary Police Service, every year there are over 30,000 collisions in Calgary alone. An accident can leave you out of work for long periods of time as you recover from whiplash, broken bones and other injuries. Often, residual pain and disability can affect your ability to work, take care of your family and care for yourself.
Calgary Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
A pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle often suffers more profound injuries than just soft tissue or "whiplash" injuries. As a pedestrian, you do not have the same level of physical protection that would be available if you were in a vehicle yourself. Injuries can include:
- Concussions and other head injuries
- Back and spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Injured joints such as shoulders and knees
- Psychological effects of your accident
The consequences of being struck as a pedestrian may be very significant. The resulting claims against the at-fault motorist include insurance benefits to help with your short and medium term recovery, and a civil claim for compensation as a result of your injuries, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses and other losses caused by the accident.
Calgary Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycles are often not noticed by drivers of larger, enclosed vehicles, and this can lead to accidents. The size and weight of a larger vehicle against a motorcycle driver can cause serious and life-changing damage. A motorcycle accident can result in:
- Broken bones
- concussion and other serious head injuries
- spinal injuries
- Psychological trauma
Bicycle Injury Lawyer
We will work through the claims process to ensure you receive the benefits that assist with your recovery today, and also that you receive the compensation necessary for the injuries and other losses caused by the at-fault driver in the bicycle-motor vehicle accident.
Calgary Slip-and-fall Accident Lawyer
If you slip and fall on someone else's property - or if you're injured because of a defect on that property - the occupier of that property may be liable. It is important to document the circumstances of the injury as soon as possible, before memories start to fade. Hopefully, you have reported the accident to the occupier of the premises, as well as to your caregivers. Photographs of the accident scene are especially helpful as these can show, for example, the presence of ice leading to your fall. If you intend to explore a claim from a slip and fall accident, it is important to act quickly so that the relevant evidence has a better chance of being available and preserved.
Type of Injury
