Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents

If you or a loved one was injured in a motor vehicle accident, your legal battle will be with the insurance companies. A multibillion-dollar industry, they have plenty of lawyers on their team, which means that you should, too.

Your first step after an accident should be to call 911, even if you feel like your injuries are minor or insignificant. Always accept emergency medical care. Many injuries, such as whiplash and concussions, are difficult to detect at first because you’re in shock, but a medical professional can identify them right away. Furthermore, the police report and investigation will be critical to proving your case and getting fairly compensated for your losses.

Your next step is to contact your insurance company to notify them of the accident. Do not answer questions, make any statements about fault, or sign anything until you speak with an attorney.

Once retained, the lawyers at CKM will immediately begin to gather evidence and strategize your case. Our goal is to get you a fair and expedient settlement, while simultaneously preparing for the possibility of a trial.

PEDESTRIAN AND CYCLIST ACCIDENTS

As a bustling city, pedestrians and cyclists are a routine part of life in Calgary. Unfortunately, motor vehicle drivers don’t always pay attention or safely share the road with their pedestrian counterparts.

If you were injured while on foot on bicycling, your injuries are likely severe and your medical bills steep. Insurance companies should help cover those costs, but that isn’t always the case.

Our personal injury lawyers are familiar with all the insurance companies’ standard practices, policies, and excuses for failing to pay. We will help you navigate the maze of paperwork, find the best medical care for your injuries, hire expert witnesses, and negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf. And when a settlement isn’t possible, due to the insurance companies’ unwillingness to be fair, we will expertly prepare for trial and represent you every step of the way.

TRIPS, SLIPS & FALLS

Trips, slips, and falls are often blamed on carelessness or clumsiness, but that is not always the case.

Countless people are injured each year due to:

  • Cluttered and unsafe work sites
  • Poorly maintained premises and properties
  • Negligent shop owners
  • Defective walkways
  • Poor designs, construction, and engineering
  • And more

These types of slip and fall injuries can cause severe damage, such as concussions, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, nerve damage, soft tissue damage, and more.

If you or a loved one was injured in a slip and fall, due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek damages and compensation for your injuries.

At CKM, we have experience with a diverse range of slip and fall accidents and know exactly how to move forward with your claim.

PRODUCT LIABILITY

When a product is defective due to poor design or construction, it can result in injury to users. In fact, thousands of people are injured in Canada each year due to products that don’t work as planned.

Common sources of injury come from products such as:

  • Tire blowouts
  • Medical devices and equipment
  • Food products
  • Vehicular failure
  • Faulty home and building construction materials
  • Oilfield and construction equipment
  • Infant and child gear and toys
  • Industrial equipment
Consumer protection laws provide remedies if you were injured due to a faulty product, whether you were driving, at home, on the job, on out in public. You have a right to hold the responsible parties accountable and seek compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages, medical costs, and more.

 

The lawyers at CKM Law are fully committed to making things right, helping you understand your options, and getting you the compensation you deserve.
