Have you been injured in a car accident and need a lawyer? At Zhivov Law, you can rest assured our personal injury lawyers are here to provide dedicated legal assistance.
We understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll a motor vehicle accident can take on your life. Whether it was a rear-end collision or you were injured as a pedestrian, our team will work tirelessly on your case and advocate on your behalf to ensure you receive fair compensation.
We’ll handle the legal complexities of dealing with insurance companies and negotiating settlements while keeping your best interests as our top priority.
Accidents involving a pedestrian and a motor vehicle can lead to severe injuries due to a pedestrian’s lack of protection. It’s been found that driver negligence is a leading cause for pedestrian accidents.
Rear-end collisions, often caused by distracted driving, tailgating, or sudden stops, can result in serious injuries. Even if the rear-end collision is minor, it’s still worth it to call a personal injury lawyer.
If you have been injured in hit-and-run accident, you have access to compensation through the the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Program. The program can be confusing, so it’s best to seek guidance from a lawyer.
Around 7,500 cyclists in Canada are seriously injured every year, according to the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA). We are advocates for those cyclists, and we’ll help ensure they receive proper compensation.
According to Transport Canada, there were 1,768 motor vehicle fatalities in 2021. We recommend seeking support, guidance, and fair compensation to help offset the effects of such a tragedy.
Call Your Lawyer Directly
At Zhivov Law, we specialize exclusively in personal injury cases. Our experienced team of injury lawyers works hard to ensure the best possible settlement in a timely manner. While we take the occasional personal injury case unrelated to motor vehicle accidents (MVAs), the vast majority of our claims involve auto accident injuries.
The most typical injury we see in car accident claims is whiplash, which can result in long-term chronic pain and require ongoing medical care.
The second most common type of auto accident we see involves intersection collisions, where an individual runs a stop light or stop sign or where a driver makes a left turn across another vehicle’s path, resulting in a major crash. These types of accidents often result in traumatic injuries, such as brain injuries and concussions, broken bones, sprains, as well as whiplash.

If you’ve been in an accident, the priority is seeking immediate medical attention for injuries sustained. It’s also crucial to document the accident scene by taking photos, gathering witness statements and physical evidence, and obtaining police reports. Following the accident, your first call should be to a personal injury lawyer so you can start building a case.
If you or a family member has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, and you’re not at fault for the accident, we can represent you. Clients may have a variety of injuries, ranging from whiplash, sprains, TMJ and concussions to catastrophic injuries and wrongful death.
With 40 years of experience in personal injury law, our lawyers are experts in our field. Let us take on the insurance companies on your behalf, and work hard to get you the financial compensation you deserve.
The more serious the injury, the longer it will take to settle. The majority of cases take anywhere from two to three years. There are exceptions to every rule, and some cases take a few months to settle while others take 10 years or more.
A person can sue for any amount of money. Realistically, the amount is dependent on the seriousness and duration of their injuries and whether their injuries affect their ability to work (loss of income). As per The Law Society, we cannot give dollar amounts or even a range for settlements.
Many Albertans don’t realize that it doesn’t cost anything upfront to hire an injury lawyer. We take a percentage of the settlement, so we don’t get paid until you get paid!
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be eligible to receive compensation for physical and psychological injuries, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, property damage, and potential future damages. We will discuss your compensation options in detail when you contact us for an initial consultation.
