Alberta Personal Injury Lawyers Looking Out For You and Your Family

The West’s Most Trusted Personal Injury Allies

Welcome to the Alberta-based law firm of Martin G. Schulz & Associates. Our goal is, and always has been, to provide our clients across Western Canada with help, hope, and peace of mind after suffering a serious accident or injury. We are passionately committed to helping accident victims and their families rebound from the life-altering devastation that injury accidents and fatal accidents can cause. We make sure that our clients know they are not alone and that our personal injury lawyers sincerely have their best interests at heart.

Personal Injury Means More Than Just Physical Suffering

When you or a loved one sustain a serious injury due to someone else’s negligence, carelessness or recklessness, it takes more than a physical toll. It can affect yourself and your family members mentally, emotionally, and financially long after the incident has occurred. In addition to the pain or injury, you may also be faced with:

  • Significant medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Financial instability and stress
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Lifelong health issues
  • Grief over loss of a loved one
  • And more

But relieving financial stress can help you put your accident in the past and move forward with your life. Helping you receive fair compensation is our focus, with the goal of securing a settlement sufficient to cover present and future medical expenses, replace lost income, and restore financial stability while you and your family concentrate on recovery and rebuilding your life.

Reasons You Need an Attorney

Insurance Scams

It’s not really a surprise that avoiding claim payouts is how insurance companies all across the country stay in business. Here in Alberta, it’s no different.  When an injury accident is reported to an insurance company, a quick settlement may be offered, before the incident particulars or the magnitude of the victim’s injuries is fully understood.  If so, it’s usually a low offer that will barely cover the client’s needs, or possibly no offer by deeming the claim invalid.

How Can You Protect Your Rights and Ensure a Fair Claim Settlement?

The time immediately after an accident is when the victim is the most frightened and vulnerable. Insurance companies may take advantage of this, knowing that someone who’s hurting will often take the first offer presented to them before realizing they could be entitled to much more. Unfortunately, once an offer is accepted, the victim can neither sue nor file a new claim for a better settlement, and the insurance companies are counting on this. Hiring a personal injury lawyer is the best way to protect your rights and ensure a fair settlement is reached.

Bigger Settlements When Retaining an Alberta Personal Injury Lawyer

An Insurance Research Council study showed that settlement for personal injury claimants represented by a personal injury lawyer resulted in amounts 3.5 times larger than those who filed claims independently. Thousands of dollars or more potentially back in your pocket can go a long way in helping you make a successful recovery.

    Physical Effects of Car Accidents

    Anyone who has ever been involved in an accident can attest to the fact that regardless of how minor it may seem, severe injuries can result. Victims involved in minor accidents can suffer from whiplash, soft-tissue injuries, burns, spinal injury, broken bones, brain injury, bruises, paralysis, and even wrongful death. Your primary goals if you’ve been involved in a car accident should be to deal with your injuries and heal. Following that, you should seek reimbursement for any medical bills, lost wages and damage to your property.

    • In 2020, there were over 150 thousand new vehicle registrations and over 1.7 million cars being sold in Canada.
    • According to the Canadian Transportation Safety Board, 160,000 road accidents occur in Canada annually. This translates to 2,800 to 2,900 people losing their lives on the road every year.
