As part of an ongoing series, we have asked different lawyers at James H. Brown and Associates what they think makes “the best accident lawyer”.
“I need to find the best accident lawyer for my case,” is what goes through your mind after an accident. When you or a loved one are injured in an accident, you may feel angry and worried about meeting your basic needs. Putting food on the table and paying your rent or mortgage payments, may feel overwhelming. While you may feel that no amount of money can fully compensate you for the trauma and distress that you and your family have experienced, you may be thinking, the person at fault “is going to pay!”
Many people are determined to find the “Best” Personal Injury Lawyer to ensure they get the compensation they deserve, not only for today but their future. With the overwhelming amount of information online, you may not know where to turn. The “Best” Accident Lawyer to choose to represent you is the lawyer that you have the most positive interaction with when you have spoken with them about your case.
All lawyers have to meet extensive education and training requirements to practice law in Alberta. I work in personal injury law. This is what I think makes the Best Accident Lawyer.

2. The Best Accident Lawyer Has Precedent-Setting Experience
Motor vehicle accidents often involve multiple vehicles, and sometimes unidentified drivers, uninsured drivers or stolen vehicles, and no one admits fault. After all the trauma you went through, suddenly you feel that you are being blamed for the accident when you know you did nothing wrong.
In accidents such as slips and falls, injuries on private or city property, and other types of accidents, it has to be proven that another person’s negligence caused your injuries. This requires thorough and immediate investigation. The Best Accident Lawyer has experience advocating cases that have not only helped individuals who have been injured but also have advanced the rights of all accident victims in Alberta.
3. The Best Accident Lawyer Listens to You
The Best Accident Injury Lawyer understands the complexities of your injuries and that your recovery is not always a straight path. Some days you may feel improvement, while other days you cannot complete your daily tasks. You may feel angry and frustrated for having to deal with pain and headaches and not being able to participate in the activities you used to enjoy. You may feel that did not do anything wrong, that you did not deserve this, and you did not ask for this to happen to you.
It is okay to feel frustrated. For many people, it is the first time they have been in a motor vehicle accident, and the first time they have ever been involved in legal matters or needed to get legal help. For others, they have been in a motor vehicle accident before and are feeling like they cannot catch a break.
Many people lead active lifestyles prior to a motor vehicle accident and have never sustained a serious injury before or never had to go to the hospital, attend physiotherapy or chiropractic treatment. Others have prior complex medical conditions, such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, or chronic migraines, and their conditions have worsened after a motor vehicle accident.
