First Things First, Get Medical Attention
After a motor vehicle accident, it is important to get medical attention.

Phone 811 in Alberta for Health Link to help assess your injuries and for information on the nearest clinics and emergency departments.
Speak with a Car Accident Injury Lawyer to Answer Your Questions
Car Accident Injury Lawyers help accident victims get compensation for the injuries that they have suffered from a motor vehicle accident. This process typically involves suing the at-fault driver by filing a Statement of Claim. A Statement of Claim is a commencement document that formally starts a lawsuit in court. Compensation for the losses you have suffered, also referred to as damages, is pursued against the at-fault driver, and is usually paid for by the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
In hit and run collisions, or in cases where the at-fault driver does not have insurance, the process involves the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund. There are important steps required, such as notifying the Administration of the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund. If certain requirements are not met, you can lose your right to compensation. Speak with us today so that you understand your legal rights.

Compensation for Your Injuries
Damages are calculated based on several areas, primarily how your injuries in the car accident have impacted your life. These are referred to as non-pecuniary damages, as they do not have a direct monetary value, rather are compensation for your pain and suffering.
There are also non-pecuniary damages, such as expenses for ambulance bills and other treatment expenses not covered through Section B Accident Benefits or your personal health benefit plan. This also includes compensation for lost wages, if you have had to miss work as a result of your injuries in the accident.
