WHY SHOULD I HIRE A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER?
When you’ve suffered an injury -- particularly when it wasn’t your fault -- it can seem like your entire world has been turned upside down. The Court process can be confusing, insurance companies will fight to deny you the money you are owed, and those responsible for your injuries, may refuse to admit liability.
The experienced personal injury lawyers at Pipella Law, will help you navigate the legal system to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
In accordance with The Limitation Act of Alberta, a Statement of Claim must be filed within 2 years of the date upon which the incident took place. Failure to file in time, will result in your claim being statute-barred. Getting in touch with a personal injury lawyer early, will help guide you through the complex process of civil litigation, and will make compiling your necessary documents easier, simpler, and faster.
If you are involved in a motor vehicle collision, you must exchange information, file a police report, and talk to your own insurance company. Beyond this, it is generally ill-advised to communicate with the other party’s insurance company. Pipella Law suggests that you consult with a personal injury lawyer prior to communicating with anyone.
The vast majority of cases (around 98%) are settled out-of-court. Having experienced lawyers who can cut through the “red tape” on your way to a settlement, is crucial to receiving compensation. They will be able to evaluate your case, and be prepared for any situation, including the possibility of going to trial.
Pipella Law operates on a “contingency fee” basis. What that means is that we do not get paid until you do. If the case heads to trial, we do not receive anything — unless we win. This will allow you to focus on recovery, without the stress of wondering whether you can afford to be compensated for your losses.
While efficiency is important, the process takes time. Let a personal injury Lawyer at Pipella Law take upon the hassle of handling your case, and you will not pay any fees throughout the process until settlement.
