Your Calgary Car Accident Injury Lawyers
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.
Most of our injury claims arise from rear-end car accidents, in which our clients were hit from behind. 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.
Frequently asked questions
How much can someone sue for a car accident in Calgary?
A person can sue for any amount of money they like. However, 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). We cannot give dollar amounts or even a range for settlements. This is not allowed by the Law Society.
How long does it take to settle a car accident claim in Calgary?
The more serious the injury the longer it will take for the case to settle because the amount of money involved is higher. Typically, with most cases we see, a case can 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 to settle.
Is it worth getting a lawyer for a car accident in Calgary?
It is definitely worth getting a law firm to represent you if you were injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault. The insurer doesn’t care about you as a claimant, so you want the best injury lawyer, someone to defend your interests to ensure a fair settlement.
Please note: If you’ve been involved in a car accident, it is important to notify the police and obtain a police report. Having a police report will make your lawyer’s job a lot easier.
How much does it cost to hire a car accident lawyer in Calgary?
It doesn’t cost a client anything to hire an injury lawyer. We get paid a percentage of the settlement when you get paid, so you don’t have to give us any money up front.
What types of accidents and injuries do you take on?
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.
