Fighting to Put the Cap on Injury Compensation Caps.
When you’ve experienced a car accident in Edmonton, you need the help of an experienced car accident lawyer in Edmonton. The team at McCourt Law Offices helps ensure victims of vehicle collisions and hit-and-run accidents obtain the fair compensation due to them according to Alberta Law. You have a right to seek compensation for your injuries, and talking with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can determine the amount you can realistically claim. McCourt Law Offices offers accident victims an initial consultation at no cost.
If your injuries are less serious and require less healing time, your claim may only take a matter of months. More serious injuries that involve long-term rehabilitation or permanent disability usually require more time to reach an appropriate settlement. In all cases, reaching a fair settlement is preferable to accepting a quick one. You pay no fee to McCourt Law Offices until you collect your cash compensation.
At McCourt Law Offices, we help innocent passengers and drivers who are injured and not at fault, as well as clients who have claims against uninsured and unidentified motorists that can be held responsible for their personal injuries.
Common injuries suffered by those in motor vehicle collisions in the Edmonton area include:

No matter the severity of your injury, you may be owed compensation. Our team can help you determine exactly what you are owed and guide you in the process of claiming your settlement.
The amount of an eventual settlement depends on the costs, losses and long-term effects on your life associated with your car accident injuries. In Edmonton, based on the law and an assessment of your needs, you may be entitled to benefits for items including:
Loss of income
Home care or nursing costs
Future care costs
Loss of homemaking capacity

Pain and suffering
Significant injuries suffered in an auto accident can often interfere with your ability to work or participate in daily activities, including bathing, dressing, preparing meals or basic mobility. You may then be entitled to compensation for services such as:
Case management services
Professional attendant care
Housekeeping and home maintenance
If you’re unsure about what you qualify for, our experienced team of car accident lawyers in Edmonton will be able to evaluate your situation and determine your potential settlement.
We offer assistance in understanding the complexities of motor vehicle accident and personal injury law. We can also help you determine if your injuries such as strains, sprains and other soft tissue injuries fall under the Alberta government cap limiting damages for pain and suffering. We will review what an insurance adjuster has told you, but it is in your best interest to speak with your lawyer to plan how to proceed in a way that protects your physical, emotional and financial well-being. More than 95% of personal injury claims are settled outside of court, but our lawyers will be by your side in the courtroom if that is necessary to seek a positive outcome to your claim.
When you have been injured in a car accident in Edmonton, take these steps to receive the medical assistance you need and also cover yourself legally with the police and any insurance companies. If you are able, right after a vehicle collision or hit-and-run, you must notify the police. Also notify your auto insurance company and the at-fault automobile insurer. Seek medical treatment immediately, keeping all documentation from the police, clinics, doctors, rehabilitation specialist and hospitals involved.
