Every year James H. Brown and Associates represents numerous individuals who have suffered a tragic life-changing spinal cord injury. Our firm is a leader in spinal cord injury litigation having achieved some of the largest motor vehicle accident settlements in Alberta. Our primary goal is to ensure every accident victim recovers sufficient funds to allow them to live an independent lifestyle and receive the care they will require. Spinal cord injury claims almost always exceed $1 million. Drivers rarely have more than $1 million in liability insurance. Thus, we are almost always faced with the task of trying to find additional sources of funds to meet the needs of our clients.
Upon being retained, we immediately send out expert accident reconstruction engineers and private investigators to determine the exact cause of the accident. This helps us determine whether there may be other parties whose actions may have contributed to the accident, exposing them to potential liability for the damages suffered by our client. As an example, if the design or maintenance of the roadway was faulty or not up to required specifications it could expose a municipality or provincial government to liability for our client’s injuries. Early accident reconstruction and investigation is absolutely critical in uncovering these additional defendants in order to receive the largest settlements for our clients.
When a person’s future is at stake recovering sufficient funds to provide for their lifelong needs is critical. James H. Brown and Associates is proud to have achieved some of Alberta’s largest spinal cord injury settlements. When it comes to representing those who have suffered a spinal cord injury, our professional legal team is second to none.
