Debunking 3 Myths About Personal Injury Law

More often than not, filing a personal injury claim is new territory for most Edmontonians. While the internet can be an excellent resource for finding information on personal injury law, there’s also a plethora of conflicting information. At James H. Brown and Associates, we pride ourselves on providing support and assistance to those who’ve been injured in an accident but also on helping educate the general public about personal injury law and what to expect if you or a loved one are injured in an accident. Below we will debunk three myths about personal injury law. Keep reading to learn more and how James H. Brown and Associates can help you and your family. 

1) You Don’t Need a Lawyer Because You Have Insurance

The primary goal for any insurance company is to make a profit, which can mean prioritizing finances over people. Often many insurance companies will try to settle your personal injury accident claim as soon as possible for a minimum payout. Insurance companies may not provide you with the full settlement you’re entitled to without consulting a personal injury lawyer first to understand your rights.

At James H. Brown and Associates, our personal injury lawyers have centuries of combined experience working with insurance companies and their adjusters. We know how to prepare and present a strong claim and negotiate on your behalf. Using our network of medical professionals, accident reconstruction engineers, specialized analysts, and economists, our personal injury lawyers will evaluate your claim and ensure you attain the best possible settlement. With the support of an experienced personal injury lawyer, like those at James H. Brown and Associates, you can have the right representation to stand up against insurance companies and ensure you attain compensation for your injuries. 

2) A Personal Injury Claim Will Take Years to Settle

Ultimately, the length of the litigation depends on the complexity of your personal injury claim and the nature of your injuries. Many personal injury claims in Edmonton are settled out of court; however, it may be necessary to proceed to trial. But with the help of James H. Brown and Associates’ personal injury lawyers, our team can evaluate your case and provide you with a better understanding of how long your case will take.

3) You Have Plenty of Time to Speak to a Lawyer

When it comes to personal injury claims, time is of the essence. The longer you wait to speak to a personal injury, the more difficult the chances of your success may be. As time passes, it becomes challenging for your personal injury lawyer to prove your injuries, find witnesses, and gather evidence. Moreover, you have two years to file a lawsuit in Alberta per our statute of limitations laws. That means you lose the right to sue if you do not file a lawsuit with the court within two years from the date of your accident. So it’s best not to wait until a few days before the limitation period is over; instead, reach out to James H. Brown and Associates as soon as possible after your accident.
