Vladimir Zhivov

Vladimir Zhivov, Managing CounselVladimir works with clients who have had the misfortune of getting into an accident that wasn’t their fault. His clients are regular people who come from all walks of life. Many have been involved in motor vehicle accidents. Others are victims of slip and fall accidents. Every client is unique and each case is different.

As an accident lawyer, Vladimir meets with his clients, advises them on their rights and responsibilities, and then works to determine the extent of their injuries by consulting with medical and other professionals. Once the extent of a client’s injuries are clear (whether the client has recovered or will continue to face ongoing issues), Vladimir works to determine the dollar value of the claim, involving independent experts, if necessary. He then endeavours to negotiate the best financial settlements for his clients.

Over the years, Vladimir has helped thousands of clients receive the financial settlements they deserve.

“Often clients need treatment for a long time – sometimes for the rest of their lives – and that’s expensive,” he says. “The money doesn’t restore their health, and it doesn’t make them whole, but money, at least, helps them deal with their injuries or loss.”

A graduate from the law school at the University of Calgary, Vladimir also holds a master’s degree in Russian history from Carleton University. Vladimir is an active member of the Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers’ Association and the Canadian Bar Association. Originally from Kiev, Ukraine, Vladimir speaks fluent Russian.

Here are some of Vladimir’s recent reviews from clients:

“I don’t know how to thank Vladimir Zhivov for his help! When I and my children had a major car accident in November 2016, I contacted Zhivov Law straight away… After the shock of an accident, losing our car and a year long physiotherapy sessions, Vladimir did not just save us the time and hassle of dealing with paperwork and unpleasant negotiations, he got us the compensation we could never imagine possible! Without hesitation, I would recommend Zhivov Law to anyone looking for a lawyer, who is highly professional, straightforward, reliable and understanding.” – Natalie S. (5 stars on Google reviews)
