In Alberta, accident injury law is complicated. It’s also constantly evolving; one case or one judge’s interpretation of the law can affect countless other accident claims for years to come. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, it’s critical to have a legal team that understands these precedents and the best path to justice for your unique situation.
For over three decades, James H. Brown and Associates has remained at the forefront of Alberta injury law. Not only do we have a thorough understanding of accident injury precedents, but in many cases, we’re the ones who set them while helping our clients secure the outcomes they deserve. Read on to learn more about how James H. Brown and Associates continue to stand up for Albertans’ rights, as well as how we ensure our clients achieve justice in the Courts.
Standing Up For Accident Victims
Having helped thousands of clients over the years, James H. Brown and Associates understands that no two accidents are alike. The long-term consequences of an injury are dependent on the injury itself, as well as how the injury will affect your day-to-day life.
For example, a serious injury can limit one’s ability to complete housekeeping tasks. If an accident victim is a stay-at-home parent, this could have devastating results for them and their family. James H. Brown and Associates’ Terrence Kulasa was the first lawyer in Alberta to confirm individuals (both men and women) can claim damages for lost/impaired ability to perform housekeeping tasks.
Our law firm is proud to ensure accident victims receive justice for both short and long-term injuries. Our team has a proven record of success securing compensation for catastrophic injuries including quadriplegia, paraplegia, and brain injuries. Not only have these settlements helped our clients and their families move forward, but they have also set precedents in Alberta courts, ensuring that other accident victims also receive the justice they deserve.
Standing Up for Albertans
In addition to personal injury settlements, James H. Brown and Associates has participated in numerous class-action lawsuits to defend Albertans impacted by an organization’s negligence. With nearly 200 years of combined knowledge and experience, our team of experienced lawyers has successfully managed class actions across a wide variety of industries and sectors.
Our class action team, led by Richard Mallett, has been involved in numerous precedent-setting class action settlements, including the $1 Billion Volkswagen case, the single largest class action settlement in Canadian history. We’ve also navigated successful proceedings in the food safety, long-term care, and utility industries, holding corporations accountable and ensuring Albertans are protected from negligence.
Standing Up for YOU
If you or a loved one have been seriously injured or are considering participating in a class action, you’re probably wondering why our precedent-setting history matters. Fair enough! We understand firsthand that when you’re injured, the only thing that matters to you is securing the compensation you and your family need to move forward.
Our precedent-setting history makes us the right choice to represent you for three reasons:
- They show our experience in trials. Not every personal injury case makes it to the Courts; similarly, not every injury lawyer has trial experience! If the insurance company won’t budge and you’re left in the lurch, we’re willing and able to go as far as necessary to ensure you’re treated fairly, with a proven record of success.
- Our success gives you access to support and resources. As a large, well-established law firm, James H. Brown and Associates are proud to offer access to complete resources and support throughout the entire legal process. We’re not just here to manage your case; we’re here to help you and your family look after your needs every step of the way.
- They demonstrate our commitment to justice. Injury law doesn’t exactly have a sparkling reputation; unfortunately, there are more than a few individuals who live up to the “fast-talking, ambulance-chasing” stereotypes. At James H. Brown and Associates, however, we’re more concerned with ensuring our clients are treated fairly than getting a quick payday. We work to ensure accident victims and their families get justice in Court while setting precedents for fair compensation for all Albertans.
