An injury caused as a result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness is referred to as a personal injury. This injury can be physical, mental, or emotional and excludes damages to property. We can take care of the negotiations with the insurance companies and ensure that you get a just settlement. At Stephens Holman Devraj, our aim is to present your case in an honest manner. The lawyers at our personal injury law firm in Calgary are 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 you 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. Moreover, we can help to get you compensated for both physical and psychological trauma resulting from the accident.
If you believe that you have a claim to get compensation for your injuries incurred as a result of a motor accident, you can move ahead with the following steps:
Obtain witness information
Get immediate medical attention
Retain the photos and other evidence
Keep the copies of medical records and injury information
Gather personal and insurance information from the other party
You may be entitled to auto injury compensation if the following applies to you:
You Suffered a Physical, Mental, or Emotional Injury: Seek immediate medical attention if injured. Get treatment for all the injuries, even the minor ones and get them evaluated. Collect copies of any medical reports, treatment plans, etc.
The Injury Was Caused by the Fault or Negligence of Someone Else: Sometimes accidents happen because of another person’s fault, which may include a company, another motorist, or a third party.
Whether it’s a case of auto or personal injury, CAP claim or wrongful death, our auto and accident injury lawyers will protect your interests and will take the necessary steps required to seek appropriate compensation on your behalf. Here is our commitment to you:
We get paid if you get paid
If you have suffered any of the above injuries due to someone else’s negligence, you likely have a case.
However, it is not advisable to assume that:
You are not eligible for compensation because your injuries are too small or insignificant. Some injuries such as whiplash, sprains, and strains - often take time to present symptoms fully. These injuries might not seem serious initially but can transform into long-term, chronic pain down the line.
You do not have a case. If you are uncertain about whether your case qualifies as a personal injury claim, it’s important to get professional advice. Our experienced injury lawyers at Stephens Holman Devraj can help you determine what you are entitled to.
You cannot afford legal representation. We will not request any payment from you until we secure a reasonable settlement for you.
Many people hesitate to access the legal aid they require because of the cost of legal services. At our personal injury law firm in Calgary, we believe in making our services accessible to our clients. We offer free initial consultations. On top of that, our clients only pay us when they get paid. Our clients don't have to pay for our services till their claim is settled and they receive the amount from the other party.
Every personal injury claim is different. Minor injuries heal quickly, with the claims settling in as little as a few months. The extent of the consequences of more severe injuries takes a long time to appear, which changes the timeline of the settlement. The length of time depends on factors such as the duration of time it took you to heal completely (Maximum Medical Improvement), the number of people involved, and the complications. Generally, most settlements outside of Court take around three years.

You might be entitled to compensation if you suffered a mental, physical, or emotional injury due to someone else's negligence. However, things become more challenging when you consider the specific dollar amount of the payout. The following are some questions that come to mind:
Being partially responsible for your injuries doesn't mean you won't receive compensation. The Courts look at the facts surrounding the case and determine 'liability.' You might be seen as liable to some degree, reducing the compensation amount.
In most cases, the province covers compensation costs if your claim is against an uninsured individual. Additionally, stipulations in relevant laws might cover certain expenses. For instance, if in a motor vehicle accident claim, the provincial funds are insufficient for you, you might be entitled to compensation from your automobile insurance policy if it has SEF 44 coverage.
If you have more questions, please get in touch with our personal injury law firm in Calgary. We have years of experience.
I would 100% recommend this law firm, especially Azra! She was really easy to work with, always responding to my calls and emails quickly and professionally! Getting into an MVA is extremely stressful and working with Azra throughout this settlement process really alleviated much of the stress. She worked really hard on my claim, and I couldn't have done it without her. Can't recommend Azra and Stephens Holman Devraj Barristers & Solicitors enough!!
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 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 financial 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.
