Serious and Fatal Accidents

Dedicated Calgary Lawyers Assisting Victims of Serious & Fatal Accidents

It only takes a split second for an accident to change your life completely. If you, or a member of your family, has been involved in a serious accident, you are likely facing many months of recovery which can be both emotionally and financially draining. In addition to medical and rehabilitation expenses, if you cannot work, there may be the added financial hardship caused by lost income. A situation may be even more difficult where a serious accident results in a fatality. 

A dedicated personal injury lawyer can help you identify the parties that may be responsible for the accident, and pursue a legal claim that can provide financial compensation for your losses.

At HMC Lawyers, our Personal Injury Team has handled numerous claims arising from serious personal injuries. We work hard to protect the rights of our clients and resolve their matters efficiently so that they can obtain compensation quickly and begin the process of moving on following their accident. We have extensive experience in the courtroom, and, where necessary, are not afraid to take matters all the way to trial.

Personal Injury Claims in Alberta

Sometimes, an accident is the result of another person’s negligence. Perhaps that person was careless or neglected to take proper safety precautions for the situation. In these types of circumstances, a personal injury lawyer can help you determine whether you have a claim and can help you obtain maximum compensation so that you have the financial resources to begin to recover. 

At HMC Lawyers, our Personal Injury Team helps individual clients advance legal claims for damages. We understand that this can be a daunting prospect, and we work closely with our clients to ensure they are kept informed and their questions are answered. 

How We Can Help

When you work with HMC Lawyers, we strive to understand your perspective, so we can be better advocates on your behalf. When you have questions, we strive to be responsive and address any concerns promptly and thoroughly so you can feel confident knowing that your claim is in good hands. 

We assist clients that have suffered severe, catastrophic, or fatal injuries after serious accidents, including:

  • Car accidents;
  • Brain injuries;
  • Paraplegia, quadriplegia;
  • Slips, trips & falls;
  • Dog bites;
  • Product and manufacturer’s liability;
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning and other hazardous materials;
  • Dangerous amusement park rides;
  • Swimming pool incidents; and
  • Accidents involving children.

In addition to any compensation an injured victim obtains as a result of their accident, their family members may also be entitled to recover losses if they have had to take time off work, provide caregiving services, or in take over household responsibilities. In the case of fatal accidents, family members may be able to pursue claims for loss of care and companionship, as well as financial losses caused by the wrongful death of a loved one.

In addition to representing injured victims, we also advise family members about their legal rights and obligations that might arise in circumstances where a loved one may no longer have the mental capacity to manage their own affairs.
