Are You Looking for a Personal Injury Attorney in Calgary?

Personal Injury is the legal term for any damage inflicted to the body, physically, emotionally or mentally by accident or with sinister intent. It is far but not the opposite of the suit for damage to property. The law in Calgary for personal injury on the other hand is a suit referring to the effect of wrongful and negligent conduct done by one man to another; something that has caused bodily damage, negligent infliction of emotional distress or intentional infliction of emotional distress.

“It was just an accident”, a common line that people use after an unforeseen mishap. Humans have been using this phrase time and time again, giving the impression that accidents cannot be prevented when they occur. In fact, most accidents are the effects of negligence; one missed detail can pose a life threatening environment and give an unwanted and unprecedented permanent injury to someone. It does not matter where, accidents happen from roads, to construction sites, vacation getaways and even the comfort of our very own home.

About 80 percent of recorded personal injuries are caused by impaired driving, where the tortfeasor (the defendant or person who caused damage to someone by accident or with a proactive intent), a driver under the influence causes accident and damage to property, traffic, pedestrians and innocent bystanders. Each of the people involved on the incident may file a personal injury complaint and hire an attorney; if not, lawyer may be provided by the local government. In some unique cases, a lawyer handling a personal injury case may need to prove that the driver was indeed not sober during the accident to an Alberta court house. Each year, Calgary AB scores multiple deaths from reckless driving alone. For cases like this, it wouldn’t be easy to prove that such accidents are easy to prevent. Although, we can say that most of driving accidents can be prevented if you take extra personal precaution, but that does not mean that the other party thinks the same.

Aside from impaired driving, an injury lawyer can represent people  in other simpler cases like slip and fall, defective products,  medical malpractice lawyer, canine attacks, assault and unhealthy working environment acquired sickness, just to mention a few. Usually, if someone bought and used a malfunctioning product and caused harm and a known manufacturer is involved, it would be wise to expect that they will do whatever it takes to defend their name against the lawsuit. Big companies already have lots of resources and teams of legal aids that they use as weapons to fight off personal damage claims against them. It could mean bad publicity and reviews to them if they lose against one lawsuit which of course is going to cause negative effects for business. To find an attorney capable enough to purse the claim would be as hard as finding a needle in a haystack. Possible, but it takes a lot of time and effort to happen.

 

Although the most commonly known personal damage claims happen on the road for situations like traffic accidents, assault claims, product liability (product defect claims) and holiday accidents; it does not limit one faction from filing claims for working environment mishaps that might have led to health related damages like bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, COPD, Tuberculosis, occupational stress and other health issues one may acquire from an unhealthy work environment.

The person who takes claim for pecuniary damage from tortuous conduct is known as the complainant or the Plaintiff, while the person who is liable for the act or injury, by accident or with sound intent is known as the defendant or Tortfeasor. The plaintiff – tortfeasor scenario is usually settled by terms of payment which depends on the lump sum of damages acquired over a period of time. Settlement may also depend on the agreement that both factions decided upon, their respective insurance companies (if any) will then provide the necessary legal actions to defend their clients. Although mental, unlike physical injury is less clearly covered by the insurance policy, a minority of courts already included the application of emotional and mental distress within the definition of injury.

Time Limitation

Under the limitation rules that most states practice, the plaintiff can submit a claim within a period of three years after the date of the incident, the right to sue will then be forfeited if the plaintiff fails to submit the claim within the set period. On the other hand, claimants under the age of 18 will have to seek legal counsel from an attorney specializing in personal injury to help them file the suit before they reach the age of 21. However, court houses do have the discretion to waive and extend these time periods if equitably considerable to do so. An example for this exemption is when the plaintiff had an accident and loss of eyesight (industrial blindness); the three year period may then start at the time when the claimant ought to have known that that he or she can apply for a claim.

Each region has a different statute of limitations, this is the law which sets the time frame where one can file for a claim; different types of assault and damages have a different statutes of limitations. – For a quick example is a victim with a rape claim, she usually has a longer statute of limitation than the regular plaintiff with an assault claim.

A Personal Injury Lawyer is a person who takes care of cases concerning personal mishaps and other claims concerning physical and psychological stress that may be the result of another person or faction’s wrongdoing. Attorneys who handle personal negligence cases are seasoned into the practice of  an area of the law that we call the Tort Law. The Tort Law stresses focus on the obligations as well as the remedies applicable by courts in lawsuits to aid people who fall victims to harm from the negligence others.

How does an injury lawyer help someone with a claim? When a terrible turn of events happen, people get injured, property damaged, the worst may just occur. It may be easy to replace if property is damaged or lost entirely; but then, physical and emotional damages are almost irreversible. The task of an injury attorney is to ensure the complaining party is compensated in full. The lawyer working for the personal injury claim will work to have the negligent party pay for rehabilitation, medical bills and compensation. As to compensation, the lawyer working on a plaintiff’s claim should also be able to ensure that the tortfeasor compensates the claimant’s lost wages while on treatment from the injuries suffered as well as physical and emotional damages caused.

If the accident in question resulted to death, the lawyer in charge of the case will have to determine a number of items. In the case that the deceased has (a) dependent(s), the attending lawyer should be a able to negotiate a settlement as soon as possible and convince the court to let the defendant provide the deceased dependents’ needs up to the time they are no longer dependent. The most common figure of compensation to settle this this matter is with a lump sum payment to the dependents, in some cases the tortfeasor may spread out their payment over a number of years depending on the arrangement they had on court or with the family. The defending party, if capable can also be compelled to bear, if not all, some of the cost for the funeral and pay for the mental and emotional anguish for those left behind by the deceased.
