How Personal Injury Claims Work at James H. Brown and Associates

Retaining a lawyer in any situation is stressful. When your health and the safety and security of your family are at stake, the stress is amplified. There is a great deal of uncertainty and misinformation surrounding how personal injury claims work. For this reason, it is critical that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible after an injury. Many injured Albertans forego compensation because they think their claim is too small or their injuries insignificant. Through this blog post and others like it, our team hopes to correct this misconception. Read more to learn how personal injury claims work with James H. Brown and Associates.

Hire The Precedent Setting Team

The precedent-setting team at James H. Brown and Associates handles all types of personal injury claims, both big and small. The breadth of our settled cases is extensive. Our team has achieved record settlements for paraplegia cases; while at the same time, ensuring the highest level of service for clients who come to us with less severe injuries. Most importantly, if we can’t settle your claim, you owe us nothing. As we operate on a contingency fee basis, we only get paid if our clients get paid. And each of our lawyers, from our managing partner to our articling students, will fight tooth and nail to secure you the best settlement possible.      

How Does a Personal Injury Claim Work?

When someone is injured in an accident, an immediate power imbalance is created. Ordinary Albertans are not versed in insurance law, nor do they have the means or know-how to negotiate a fair settlement with multinational insurance companies. It is simply not a fair fight and insurance companies often take advantage of unrepresented litigants. Contact our team today for a free consultation and let James H. Brown and Associates level the playing field for you.   

What Can I Expect from James H. Brown and Associates?

  • When you choose James H. Brown you are not hiring an individual lawyer. You have retained a full-service, award winning team of injury lawyers. You have instant access to over 15 lawyers with well over 250 years of combined injury law experience.
  • Keep in mind that injury law is the only law we do. This means that we are able to specialize within the personal injury field. We have experts in class actions, product liability, slips and falls, assaults, motor vehicle accidents, wrongful death, and much more.
  • When you first contact James H. Brown expect us to have some basic preliminary questions (name, insurance information, time and date of the accident, and injuries). Once this preliminary assessment is done, one of our experienced lawyers will invite you to our offices for a detailed initial interview to determine if we can help. If your claim is something we are not able to take, you owe us nothing. The initial consultation is 100% free.
  • One question all clients have is “how long will I be waiting until settlement?” We advise a period of 10 months – 4 years from initial consultation to settlement. Please keep in mind that the settlement process is variable and every client’s circimstances are different. As such, two similar cases may have a different timeline for settlement.
