Personal Injury Lawyers in Edmonton and Alberta
If you have been injured due to the negligent, reckless, or careless actions of another, you may be entitled to obtain substantial compensation for any damages suffered.
In a personal injury case, the term “damages” refers to the value of losses incurred due to a breach of duty or a violation of rights. In Alberta, damages recovered in personal injury cases include pain and suffering, lost income, future costs of care, loss of capacity, loss of housekeeping abilities, medical treatment and property damage.
At Chadi & Company, our experienced injury team has been protecting the rights of accident and injury victims in Edmonton and the surrounding areas, and across Alberta, for 30 years.
We have successfully represented countless clients, helping them get the justice and compensation they deserve. Contact us today for a free and confidential consultation about your case.
Common Types of Personal Injury Accidents
Any time another’s negligence causes harm, the injury victim may be entitled to compensation. Although we represent clients in all types of personal injury cases at Chadi & Company, the most common involve:
Car crashes – Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of accidental injury and death. There were a total of 142,596 collisions in Alberta in 2018 alone. Fatal accidents are most common among drivers ages 24 and under.
Truck accidents – Due to their size, accidents involving commercial trucks—which can weigh more than 35,000 kilograms—often result in serious injury and death.
Motorcycle accidents – Motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to be killed in a crash than drivers and passengers of cars and trucks.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) – Every year, approximately 165,000 Canadians suffer a TBI, which can cause lifelong, and sometimes debilitating, complications.
Spinal cord injuries – According to Spinal Cord Injury Alberta, it is estimated that about 121,000 Canadians will be living with spinal cord injuries by 2030.
Slip and fall accidents – Although slip and fall accidents can happen to anyone for any reason, they are most common among older individuals. With Alberta’s ageing population and challenging winter weather conditions, slip and fall accidents are exceedingly common in this province.
Serious Injuries – Any serious injury can result in life-changing consequences and implications. Serious/catastrophic injuries include traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, paralysis, amputation, complex bone fractures, wrongful death and more.
Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Following an injury accident, the last thing you should be doing is dealing with other involved parties, sifting through paperwork, and negotiating with insurers.
Keep in mind that is the insurance company’s job to pay as little as possible. When an injury victim comes to the table without legal representation, the insurance carrier knows how desperately they need a settlement check.
A few thousand dollars is often all it takes to get the injury victim to sign off and walk away. Sadly, they are nearly always entitled to a substantially larger settlement.
At Chadi & Company, we tirelessly pursue every area of compensation, while simultaneously engaging the highest-quality health care professionals to ensure that you receive the treatment you deserve.
In doing so, we are also able to ensure that any injuries are fully documented, which is critical to a favourable outcome in any personal injury case. We further retain economic experts to account for all losses, making sure that you receive the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
We know how the big insurance companies think, and we will negotiate aggressively for full compensation. Although we always aim to settle out of court, if a fair settlement offer cannot be reached, we are prepared to take your case to trial.
With more than 100 years of combined experience, the injury team at Chadi & Company has won countless cases for our clients, obtaining hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements.
When you retain the services of one of our injury lawyers, you can rest assured knowing that we are dedicated to getting you the full compensation you deserve.
What Questions Should I Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Personal injury lawyers are not one-size-fits-all. If you have been injured and want to obtain the compensation you deserve, it is critical to work with a skilled, knowledgeable injury lawyer with extensive experience in the particular area you need.
Furthermore, it is important to feel comfortable with your injury lawyer. You are going to be spending time with this person and sharing very personal details; if you don’t trust them, it will likely have a negative impact on the overall outcome of your case.
Interviewing potential injury lawyers is important. Not only because it answers these important questions, but it also gives you an opportunity to gauge the lawyer’s level of confidence and overall personality/demeanour.
If after asking the above questions you feel that a candidate is confident, trustworthy, knowledgeable, reliable – and you feel comfortable with them – it may be in your best interest to retain their services and begin the process of healing, obtaining the compensation you deserve, and getting your life back.
