A car accident can create panic and make it hard to think clearly. As a result, an accident victim may be confused or unsure about what should be done next. In some cases, people hastily take the wrong steps, leading to a loss of opportunity to get compensation for damages and injuries.
At Stephen Holman Devraj, our aim is to present your case in an honest manner. Our team of lawyers is well versed in accident injury law and can provide legal advice in case of an accident resulting in injuries or damages. They will help you navigate through the legal system and will endeavour to get the best possible compensation.
If you’ve been injured in a no-fault car, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian accident, you owe it to yourself to protect your rights and get legal representation. Whether your claim qualifies as a CAP Claim or your injuries are more severe, we aim to help you in every way possible. Feel free to reach out to us for a free consultation.
If you experience any discomfort as a result of an accident that is not your fault, you need to contact a car injury lawyer in Calgary. It may come as a surprise, but not all car and vehicle accident cases are accepted. Whether the damage to your vehicle is small (a few scrapes on the bumper), the collision was low-speed, or your level of pain is minimal, you are still entitled to receive compensation.
If the accident was more severe, causing permanent discomfort or serious harm in a specific part of your body, or if the accident was lethal, you must contact a car accident lawyer immediately.

Accident Injury Law
Accidents on the road can happen at any time. Injuries and damage to your vehicle are common side-effects of being involved in a motor vehicle accident. We can help you explore your legal options if you have sustained injuries in an accident.
If you slip, fall, or get bitten by an animal and you believe the cause of your injury to be a person or company's negligence, you might be entitled to financial compensation. Stephens Holman Devraj can offer you legal advice on the matter.
If your injuries fall under the minor injury regulations, then your claim might be capped at a regulated amount referred to as a CAP claim. However, some claims that appear to be CAP claims, may fall outside of this CAP. It is important to seek legal advice.
If you have lost a loved one and believe another party to be at fault, you may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. This allows certain family members to get compensation for their loss and we, at Stephens Holman Devraj, can help you with your claim.
Accidents can cause long-term disabilities and prevent you from going back to life as you knew it. In such scenarios, we aim to help you in getting your long-term disability benefits and the means for the best possible quality of life.
Our services include notarization of documents, administering oaths, affirmations and solemn declarations.
Panic can worsen the situation at the site of the accident. Try to stay calm, seek immediate medical attention, and retain information related to the accident so that it can help you get compensation and justice.
