What is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury lawyers deal with a wide variety of matters. The plaintiff has been wounded due to the carelessness of another person, which is a common thread. That other party might be a person or a business. The following are some examples of common personal injury cases:

  • Automobile collisions

  • Accidents caused by slipping and falling

  • Accidents at work

  • Medical negligence

  • Boating mishaps

  • Dog attacks

A personal injury suit occurs when someone violates a duty of care owed to another, resulting in injury. In plain English, this says that someone got hurt because someone else wasn't being as cautious as the law demands. The obligation to respect traffic regulations, properly maintain a vehicle or equipment, or keep the property in a safe condition are all classic examples.

If you've been injured as a result of someone else's negligence, we'll work with you to receive the legal compensation you deserve and get you back on your feet. Right now, you can take the first step: contact us to schedule a consultation.

Damages in a Personal Injury Case

In a personal injury case, the majority of damages are determined by your actual losses. Those losses, though, might include items you hadn't anticipated. The following are examples of damages typically granted in personal injury cases:

  • Medical bills

  • Lost wages

  • Property loss or damage

  • Loss of future income

  • Pain and suffering

  • Loss of enjoyment of life

When you meet with our personal injury lawyer, we'll ask you questions about your life before the accident and your life now so that we can figure out exactly what you've lost and what kind of compensation you need.


You may exhale a sigh of relief when you hire us to defend you in a personal injury lawsuit. We'll deal with the insurance company ourselves. We'll be in charge of meeting deadlines and meeting technical criteria. Before evidence is lost or destroyed, we'll act to acquire and preserve it. We'll interview witnesses and put together a case for you. But this is only the start.

Alberta law limits the time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit, and that limit varies depending on the type of claim you’re filing. You may never be able to make up for your losses if you miss that deadline. The deadline isn't the only reason to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Following an accident, vital evidence must be maintained, witnesses may be interviewed, and your insurance policy may contain deadlines for when you must seek medical care.

In Personal Injury Cases, Timing Is Everything.

You don't have to deal with difficult legal concerns on your own or haggle with insurance firms who aren't looking out for your best interests. To request a free case review, call 780-719-9413 or contact sumer@umerlaw.com.
