Calgary Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers
The city of Calgary sees at least one auto accident every single day. Usually, that accident is caused by the negligence of at least one of the drivers.
If you are the victim of another driver’s negligence, you have the legal right to make a claim for damages. Alberta’s personal injury law allows you to recover compensation for any medical bills Medicare won’t cover. It allows you to get money to replace or repair your car. It lets you recover your lost wages, and for a loss of earning capacity. It lets you receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
If the driver was grossly negligent, you may even be able to recover punitive damages.
Yet you won’t get any of that money on your own. The other driver’s insurance company will either try to mollify you with a lowball offer that will cover a mere fraction of your expenses, or they’ll try to make the case that the accident was your fault so they don’t have to pay, or only have to pay a little.
If you aren’t on guard against insurance company tricks and don’t have legal representation you can make mistakes that can wreck your case. It’s important to call a personal injury lawyer as soon as you’re physically able to do so.
