For many people, winter driving is one of the greatest sources of stress. You prepare the best you can. You planned ahead and got winter tires before the first snowfall in November. With the endless freezing and thawing, you likely intend to keep your winter tires until you are confident there won’t be another deep freeze or more freezing rain.
Despite your efforts to stay safe on the roads, being in an accident can be frightening. When you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you need a car accident lawyer in Edmonton that understands Edmonton driving and Edmonton winters.
Car accidents often happen close to home. Whether it was a few blocks away on the route you drive every day, or on Anthony Henday Drive or Yellowhead Trail, the accident likely happened at no fault of your own.

You can take time to discuss with your loved ones. Our lawyers are fluent in multiple languages.

If you are unsure if your injury is serious enough to get a lawyer, do not hesitate to call us. Whether your injuries are minor, serious or life-changing, we are here to help you understand your legal rights. Accident victims who wait to see how they recover before speaking with a lawyer, often wish they had phoned us sooner so that they understood the process from the start.
You may be worried about whether you will ever fully recover from your injuries or if you will have any long-term effects. Most people do not know the long-term nature of their injuries right after an accident. Recovery takes time and is different for each person. Do not wait to call us. The critical evidence in your case needs to be gathered immediately after the accident. We can help you understand how compensation for damages, or the losses you have suffered, are calculated. We fight for you and advance your strongest case so you can be confident you get the compensation that you deserve.
If it has been months or more than a year since the accident, and you have been hesitant to speak with a lawyer, call us today for a no-obligation, free consultation. We can answer your questions and concerns so that you understand your options to protect the best of interests of you and your family. Remember that there are limitation laws in Alberta that specify the time you have to sue. After the limitation has passed, you lose the right to sue.
Do not wait until a few days before the limitation date to decide if you will pursue your case. The sooner you call us after the accident, the sooner we can help you navigate the process. Speak with one of our lawyers, so that you can focus on your recovery. One call to us and you will know you have made the right decision.
You Have the Support of James H. Brown & Associates
In Edmonton, winter driving conditions are part of our daily lives. Check the weather conditions before you go out on the roads and check the road advisories for where you are travelling by calling 511 in Alberta. Ensure you take your vehicle in for regular maintenance and that you check the tire pressure regularly, even if you only drive around the city. Tire pressure can significantly fluctuate in the changing temperatures, and you need to be prepared to respond to sudden changes in road conditions.
Be flexible in your plans. Your safety is most important. Allow yourself extra time to get where you are going so that you are not rushed. Ensure you are well-rested before you head out. Plan to drive in the daylight whenever possible. We cannot change Edmonton’s winters, but rest assured that if you or a loved one are in a motor vehicle accident, you know where to get help. Trust James H. Brown & Associates, the Car Accident Lawyers in Edmonton, to support you every step of the way.
