Case Review: Abbas v Esurance Insurance Company of Canada, 2023 ABCA 36 An important Court of Appeal of Alberta insurance
McCuaig Desrochers LLP has an experienced group of lawyers in Edmonton focusing on personal injury law. Our personal injury lawyers can help you if you have been in a car accident, have been injured by someone else’s wrongful actions, or if a family member has died in a fatal accident.
Clients most often come to our firm by referral from friends, family or other professionals due to our reputation of working for our clients’ best interests. We are proud to have built a loyal client and referral base in this manner. Our team of lawyers works diligently every day to ensure that our clients get fair compensation for their injuries. Our group has significant experience handling all types of claims, from relatively minor physical injuries, all the way to catastrophic injury and fatality claims.
In most cases, we are able to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company without going to Court; however, we are also strong advocates willing to take claims all the way to trial if necessary, to ensure that our clients get the compensation they deserve.
We understand that a personal injury can turn a person’s life upside down and create major financial hardship. We therefore represent clients to ensure that they receive fair compensation for their pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of income / loss of earning capacity, loss of housekeeping capacity, and other injury-related expenses.
We also understand that many people who have been injured do not have sufficient funds to pay a lawyer’s fees. We therefore offer free initial consultations in most cases, and we generally accept personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis – this means that our fees are based on a percentage of the compensation we help recover for you. Our fees are only paid after you have been compensated, and you do not pay fees unless you have received compensation.
Although we can assist clients in all types of personal injury claims, most of the claims fall into the following categories:
- Motor vehicle collisions (including motorcycles, boats, and recreational vehicles)
- Pedestrian accidents
- Occupiers’ liability claims, including slip-and-fall injuries
- liability claims
- Civil claims for assault or battery
