If you have been injured in a car accident and wish to learn more about your options and next steps in pursuing justice, an experienced Alberta car accident lawyer at Assiff Law is ready to help. 

What is typically involved in a Car Accident

Considering the speed, weight and other factors at play during vehicle travel, it is unsurprising that accidents unfold in a number of ways. Throughout our experience practicing personal injury law and dealing with countless car accident injuries we have noticed some patterns have a tendency to appear more frequently than others:

  • Failure to adapt to changing weather conditions
  • Driving under the Influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Use of a cellphone or other device behind the wheel
  • Failure to obey traffic signals
  • Exceeding Speed Limits
  • Improper lane changes
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Erratic Driving / Road Rage
  • Defective vehicles
  • Dangerously loaded cargo
  • Neglected vehicle maintenance
  • Failing to signal

Injuries most common to Car Accidents

The result of many car accidents is very often serious personal injury or in some cases even death. While we know that no dollar figure can compensate victims for everything that has been lost, substantial compensation can help ease the unexpected burdens that result from:

  • Psychological Disorders such as PTSD or Anxiety
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Limb Amputations
  • Disfigurement
  • Trauma to Internal Organs
  • Death

Most of the above injuries cause victims to incur massive losses. These losses can be emotional, mental and material in nature. Additional expenses are often incurred in the form of lost wages, cost of treatment and other medical expenses, accessibility modifications needed for home and vehicles, round the clock care and many other. 

Given these circumstances, it is important to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer, which will aggressively pursue the full amount of compensation possible. 

What to do if you have suffered a Car Accident

It is important to first seek medical attention from a medical professional. Afterwards, it is important to gather as much evidence associated with your car accident as soon as possible. Information like witness contact details, pictures of the accident and filing a police report, are some of the steps you should immediately take, following a car accident.

Our experienced spinal cord injury lawyers can help you build a case, perform all the necessary research and evidence gathering and can even help by paying medical disbursements during your case. 

If a family member or loved one has sustained an injury as a result of an accident, that renders them unable to communicate, please reach out to us on his behalf, in order to recover the necessary compensation that will provide the best long term care possible.

Talk to us before talking to your insurance

In many cases, insurance companies will try to offer you a settlement right away. Usually this type of early settlement dismisses most of the intricate details of a victim’s spinal cord injury. The early settlement offered by the insurance company will often not take the full medical expenses and adjusted living expenses into account, leaving you to pay for them out of pocket. 

Our award winning personal injury lawyers have over 20 years experience and will deal with the insurance company from day one, letting them know that you mean to seek proper compensation for your injuries as well as other compensations you may be entitled to.
