Why Do You Need an Attorney?

Dealing with Insurance Companies

It’s really no secret that insurance companies are not in the business of paying claims. If they make a settlement offer, it’s usually immediately following the accident, with little knowledge of the victim’s injuries or losses. This means that the offers are low and won’t even come close to covering all the victim’s needs. Sometimes their offers are downright insulting. Other times, they don’t make an offer at all, arguing that the victim’s claim is invalid.

Bigger Settlements for Accidents

One of the advantages of finding an injury lawyer as soon as possible following your accident is that you get the legal advice you need when it comes to insurance scams and bigger settlements. Studies from the Insurance Research Council have shown that personal injury claimants who file their own claims receive payments that are 3 ½ times less than claimants who have legal representation.

Common Causes of Falling Accidents in Alberta

Icy sidewalks and pathways during Alberta’s cold winter months certainly contribute to slipping and falling cases, but they are far from the only cause of injury. A serious fall can happen at any time, to anyone, of any age. In addition to icy streets, some other common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Walkways that are obstructed by refuse or debris
  • Slippery floors, potentially caused by cleaning or polishing
  • Uneven, cracked, or broken floors
  • Damaged or defective staircases
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Unmarked hazards

Injuries Associated With A Serious Fall

Following a slip and fall accident, victims may be subjected to a wide variety of injuries ranging from very minor scrapes and bruises to very serious internal damage and head trauma. The fall may even provoke a pre-existing condition to worsen. The following is a non-exhaustive list of injuries that may result from a slip and fall accident.

  • Cuts, scrapes, and bruises
  • Bone fractures or broken bones
  • Concussions
  • Sprained muscles or torn ligaments
  • Neck and back pain
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis

These types of injuries can have permanently altering effects that put your career and quality of life in jeopardy. If you have been a victim of a slip and fall accident caused by a negligent property owner, it is crucial that you seek the advice of a professional injury lawyer to assist with your case.

Personal Injury Compensation

If you have sustained an injury from a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to certain compensations depending on the circumstances of your case. Incidents that have limited your ability to work and earn wages, or require you to pay additional expenses as a result of the accident are strong reasons to pursue legal action. If this applies in your case, you may be entitled to one or more of the following compensations.

  • Recouping lost wages
  • Diminished capacity to work
  • Requirement of physical rehabilitation or physical therapy
  • Reimbursement for medical equipment or medication costs
  • The estimated cost of future treatment or care
  • Emotional pain and suffering damages

    Personal Injury Law Frequently Asked Questions

    We understand that this is a trying time and that you and your family have a lot on your mind as you try to navigate through the situation. The client is our first priority so you do not pay until we collect.

    All of Alberta, the Northwest Territories, and Nunavut have a general 2-year limitation period for personal injury actions. This means that if you do not file a lawsuit with the Court within two years from the date you discovered that someone has caused a bodily injury to your person, then you will not be able to make a claim. The lawyers at Martin G. Schulz and Associates can help you maneuver through this process, even when a significant amount of time has elapsed since your accident.

    Most automobile accidents are resolved without the need for a trial. However, in cases where an insurance company is being unreasonable, it is necessary to proceed with this step. The final decision is always left up to our clients, we work to ensure that you are comfortable with every outcome.

    First, take photos of your injuries and document any other information that may be pertinent. Next, if necessary, visit a doctor if you haven’t already. If you have visited a doctor, follow their instructions for a care plan and attend any necessary follow-up appointments. Be sure to record a narrative of the events surrounding the accident while it’s still fresh in your memory. Next, make a list of all possible witnesses and their contact information if you have it. Following this, be sure to adhere to any additional instructions from your personal injury lawyer.

    • Look after your recovery while your Edmonton personal injury lawyers take care of the legal side of your accident

    It is important to note that in areas like Edmonton, where the sidewalks are quick to form black ice after even a few hours of sun, that not every slip and fall accident is the outcome of the property owner’s neglect. In order to be successful in a slip and fall claim, you must prove that:

    • The risk of someone falling and injuring themself was reasonably foreseeable
    • The property owner neglected to take reasonable actions to mitigate this risk
    • Your injuries were directly caused by the inaction of the property owner who foresaw this risk

    When it comes to slip and falls, it is often difficult to determine who is at fault when you are left with an injury. Oftentimes, the legal liability falls within the following when you’ve been hurt:

    • The individual or victim themself
    • The property owner(s)
    • The snow removal or property maintenance company
    • The homeowner

    If you are unsure of how to file your slip and fall claim or require a professional opinion on how to proceed with your personal injury case, please contact one of our lawyers today to book your free consultation.

    Slip and fall accidents do not have a standard amount of compensation that is awarded to victims. This is because every case has its own unique set of relevant circumstances occurring before, during, and after the accident that must be taken into account in order to determine a fair settlement.
