Ways to Prevent an Accident

No one wants to be involved in a car accident, which can have severe emotional, financial, physical, and social consequences. This is why it’s crucial to adopt safe driving habits to reduce the risk of an accident. Taking action to protect yourself and others on the road is a responsibility we all share. The following actions can help:

  • Following the rules of the road;
  • Avoiding distractions;
  • Driving sober;
  • Driving alert;
  • Being mindful of road conditions;

It’s important to acknowledge that some accidents are unavoidable, even with the most cautious driving. For example, your driving habits cannot prevent an inexperienced driver from going behind the wheel, nor can you stop others from breaking traffic laws.

If you are injured by someone’s careless driving, know that there are options available. Our lawyers are ready to support you in this difficult situation and may be able to help you recover compensation for your injuries. Call today for a free consultation with our lawyers if you or a loved one were injured.

Section B Benefits in Beaumont

Due to the cost and impact of motor vehicle accidents, Alberta requires all drivers to carry insurance with $200,000 of third-party liability coverage and Section B accident benefits. These benefits act as a first line of defence and can provide coverage for expenses such as medical care, funerals, loss of income, and bereavement support are available. These benefits can be accessed regardless of who is responsible for the accident.

These benefits are not limitless. They can only be accessed for up to 2 years after the accident, with financial limitations on each type of expense. For instance, medical expenses have a limit of $50,000. These benefits will not be enough to cover injuries that take a long time to heal or require significant support. If you are seriously injured in a car accident, it is recommended that you speak to a lawyer to learn about the different ways you can pay for the expenses you experience.

Options Available for Uninsured and Hit and Run Accidents

If you are injured in an accident where the other driver either drove away or is uninsured, you may be eligible to get compensation through the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Program. Alberta created this program to help victims get compensation. Victims may be eligible for up to $200,000. This program, however, is only available if no other forms of compensation are available.

Damages You Can Claim in Lawsuit

Motor vehicle accident claims allow you to claim damages for different types of losses, such as economic (i.e. medical expenses) and non-economic losses (i.e. mental anguish). There generally isn’t a cap on financial losses, and you can claim losses you have already faced and losses you will face in the future, such as future lost income.

Non-economic losses are trickier since it isn’t easy to measure the value of pain and suffering. The Supreme Court of Canada set a $100,000 cap in 1978, after adjusting for inflation that value is over $400,000. A civil claim can help recover losses not covered by insurance and accident benefits.

Because litigation is complicated, and it can be tricky to understand the value of your claim fully, we recommend that you work with a lawyer. Our team of lawyers can help you evaluate your claim. Our lawyers have the foresight to consider future expenses, advance several cases, and understand the seriousness of motor vehicle accidents.

The Motor Vehicle Claims Process

There are many steps involved when pursuing a legal claim. In Alberta’s adversarial legal system, parties on opposing sides will make arguments to support their position. A motor vehicle accident lawyer can lead the process by submitting a claim and crafting arguments. Generally, a motor vehicle accident claim involves the following steps:

  1. File a Claim: Submit a statement of claim, which is a document that outlines the damages you are claiming and the legal basis for the claim.
  1. Prepare an Affidavit of Documents: This involves gathering evidence that will be used to support your claim. The evidence will then be exchanged between the parties involved.
  1. Participate in Discovery: The parties ask each other questions about the evidence and the facts of the case. Often, these answers will influence the likelihood of settling the case.
  1. Settle or Go to Trial: Parties can negotiate a settlement or proceed to trial if an agreement is not reached.

Remember that if you decide to pursue legal action, you must do so within two years of the accident. Waiting longer than this time limit can lead to you losing your legal right to sue. Our car accident lawyers can work with you to ensure deadlines are followed. Contact our firm to schedule a free consultation to learn how our team can help you with the claims process.
