Personal injury claims and lawsuits arise when another person or entity is negligent. A party is negligent when they do something that a hypothetical reasonable person should not do under the same circumstances. Alternatively, they might fail to do something that a hypothetical “reasonable person” should have done under the same circumstances.
Alberta has many injury hazards, including on the highways, residential streets, grocery stores, hotels, shopping malls, and more. At MNH Injury Lawyers, we represent victims of many different accident types—ranging from relatively minor to catastrophic. Some of our practice areas include:
Car accidents occur every day in Alberta, and they typically happen because of negligent drivers. One of the most common causes of car accidents is violating the rules of the road. For example, a driver may speed, fail to yield the right-of-way, engage in fatigued driving, tailgate another driver, or fail to use a turn signal, resulting in a severe accident.
At other times, drivers cause accidents when they fail to pay attention to the road or drive while intoxicated. Distracted or drunk drivers often have difficulty watching the road and reacting quickly to emergencies. They may not stop their vehicles in time to avoid a crash or might swerve out of their intended lane and hit another vehicle.
Commercial truck drivers, including drivers of 18-wheelers, big rigs, and tractor-trailers, typically cause accidents when they are negligent. They might not be watching the road, or they may drive while fatigued. At other times, they might fail to follow motor carrier regulations and not correctly secure cargo to the truck bed. As a result, cargo can roll out into the road, causing a severe accident. Negligent truck drivers, trucking companies, repair facilities, and truck part manufacturers can all be responsible for accidents, depending upon the circumstances.
Compared with the occupants of cars and trucks, cyclists are at a considerable disadvantage. Unlike car drivers and passengers, cyclists do not have a solid metal shell surrounding them in an accident. Instead, they suffer direct exposure to their surrounding environment. If a car or truck strikes their vehicle, they can suffer serious injuries, including traumatic head injuries, bone fractures, road rash, and soft tissue injuries.
In many instances, bicycle and motorcycle accidents occur when drivers are negligent. However, at other times, they may result from deep potholes or cracks in the road. When a cyclist hits one of these defects at a high rate of speed, they can fall off their bike onto the ground—suffering severe injuries in the process. Cities and municipalities are responsible for properly maintaining their roadways. They may be responsible for failing to do so when an accident occurs.
Traumatic brain injuries result from a forceful impact on an accident victim’s head. This impact may occur in a car accident, such as when a driver’s head strikes the steering wheel or headrest in a crash. Sometimes, they can result from slip and fall accidents or sports injuries. Traumatic brain injuries vary in size and scope, and each victim has a different experience.
Some TBI victims experience symptoms for weeks or months and eventually recover with treatment. Other traumatic brain injuries can have far more severe consequences, like long-term memory losses, paralysis, coma, or death.
A pedestrian accident can happen anywhere people walk, including crosswalks, sidewalks, and parking lots or garages. A driver may not pay attention when backing out of a parking space, striking a pedestrian, and knocking them to the ground.
When a pedestrian accident happens because of a driver’s carelessness, the pedestrian can suffer fractures, soft tissue injuries, cuts, and other serious injuries that require medical attention. Generally speaking, the more forceful the impact, the more serious the injuries to a pedestrian.
A deceased person’s surviving family members—or a personal representative of their estate—can file a wrongful death claim under certain circumstances. To file a claim, the individual’s death must have resulted from someone else’s willful or negligent act. For example, suppose a negligent or intoxicated driver causes a head-on car accident, and a person dies in the crash. In that case, that individual’s surviving family members can pursue a wrongful death claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
The monetary compensation a wrongful death claimant recovers may include:
Just as drivers must operate their vehicles carefully and safely, premises owners must maintain their properties. Specifically, they must promptly warn about or correct unknown dangerous hazards on their premises. They also must inspect their properties for potentially unknown conditions that may cause visitors to suffer injuries.
If they fail to warn about or correct a dangerous hazard within a reasonable time—and a slip and fall accident occurs—they and their insurance company can be responsible for the resulting damages.
If you or someone you love suffered injuries in one of these accidents, MNH Injury Lawyers is ready to help. We can first meet with you to discuss the circumstances of your accident and develop a plan for moving forward with your case. We can help you file a claim with the appropriate insurance company and negotiate a fair settlement offer that fully and fairly compensates you for your injuries.
If you suffer injuries in a negligence-related accident, we can help you file a timely claim with the appropriate insurance company. In most instances, we will deal with the insurance company for the at-fault individual or entity. However, if that person did not have any insurance, or if they lacked sufficient insurance, we can pursue an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim with your own insurance company.
In either instance, the claims-filing process is essentially the same. Once you begin treating your injuries, we can gather your medical reports, lost wage documents, injury photographs, and victim impact statement and assemble them into a settlement demand package. We can then send the demand package to the appropriate insurance company. If the insurance company accepts fault for your accident, we can begin settlement negotiations with the adjuster on your behalf.
In most instances, initial settlement offers from insurance company adjusters are unreasonable and do not fairly compensate accident victims for their injuries. Insurance companies are trying to settle their cases quickly—and for as little money as possible. After all, big insurance companies do not make money by paying out personal injury claims.
At MNH Injury Lawyers, we understand the tactics that insurance companies and their adjusters frequently use to try and undervalue personal injury claims. We can zealously advocate for your legal interests and, if necessary, file a lawsuit and litigate your case in court.
Even after filing a suit, we may continue negotiating with the insurance company for fair settlement compensation. However, the court will usually enter a scheduling order, and your case will proceed in the court system.
Injury victims have limited time to file a claim or lawsuit for damages. They only have two years from their accident date to file their lawsuit in court. If they file their lawsuit even one day after the deadline expires, they forever waive their right to recover monetary compensation for their injuries. Therefore, you must have skilled legal counsel on board in your personal injury case as soon as possible.
At MNH Injury Lawyers, we recognize the importance of filing a timely personal injury claim or lawsuit. If the statute of limitations period is running short in your case, we can file suit immediately to protect your legal rights and safeguard your ability to recover monetary damages. We can then begin advocating on your behalf and working to recover the damages you deserve.
At MNH Injury Lawyers, we make it our priority to help accident victims recover the compensation they deserve. We have the knowledge and skills to help you maximize your compensation and recover favorable damages—through settlement, jury trial, or alternative dispute resolution.
