Car Accident Lawyers
With Umbrella You Get Results
When you’re involved in a vehicle collision, it’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed dealing with the flood of the aftermath.
Aside from taking care of your health while recovering from your own injuries, you may also face costly car repairs, replacement vehicle rentals, missed time at work, treatments not covered by healthcare, as well as applying for disability and Section B benefits to just name a few! But that’s just half of the issue – the insurance company representing other drivers involved in the accident may call you as they work against your own interests.
What is done in the initial hours and days after a vehicle collision often has an enormous impact on the resultant personal injury claim. It’s always best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after a collision so that you are aware of your options and what actions are in your best interest.
Let the lawyers at Umbrella law that specialize in personal injury law protect your interests so you can focus on recovering from the ordeal.

Substantial compensation can be awarded
The largest personal injury compensation payments are often paid to victims of vehicle collision – especially when the injury involves significant damage to the spine and/or brain and the victim. No matter the injury, it’s vital that you are properly advised and guided through the civil legal process by lawyer specializing in personal injury claims, as the average person rarely fully understands their rights under the Insurance Act, let alone the fine print of their own insurance policy.
It’s important for victims of vehicle collisions to understand that they can receive compensation in multiple ways, such as immediately payable benefits regardless of who is at fault. Furthermore, the insurance company of the driver found to be at fault may be responsible for your compensation relating to healthcare expenses, pain and suffering, loss of income, as well as other associated expenses or losses.
A common myth is that the only way to receive significant compensation for personal injury is by going to court. This simply isn’t true. Substantial personal injury settlement rewards can be obtained without going to court by lawyers specializing in personal injury, such as those found here at Umbrella Law in Edmonton, Alberta. We can fight on your behalf to make sure you receive fair compensation without the stress of going through the courts.
Dealing with insurance companies can be stressful
While broken bones are easily seen with X-rays and other medical procedures, those that have been injured in a vehicle collision often suffer from debilitating “soft-tissue” damage, which is much harder to document. As such, it’s not uncommon for liable insurance companies to resist such claims for injury compensation on the grounds that it is not possible to prove the injury – often repeatedly stalling proceedings in the hope that the victim will give up. We at Umbrella Law are familiar with these callous tactics and know precisely how to respond to ensure claims are processed and settled in a timely manner so that you can focus on getting better rather than fighting for justice.
Another trick car insurance companies can pull is telling you that your award is limited by something called “Minor Injuries Regulations” – despite being well aware that your case might be exempt from such limitations if proper documentation is presented. Don’t just take them at their word – they are working for their own best interests, not yours. Instead, give Umbrella Law a call and we’ll make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Remember that the goal of the insurance company is for you to accept its assessment of driver fault for the accident and the value of your claim. As a result, we recommend that you don’t communicate with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, as you have absolutely no obligation to do so. Instead, let our lawyers work on your behalf and advise you on your best course of action.
Drivers aren’t the only victims
In cases of personal injury claims resulting from a vehicle collision, it can be easy to forget about passengers involved in the accident as their own insurance companies are not involved. Passengers also have rights to compensation and can always make a claim alongside the involved drivers. If you’ve been involved in a car accident as a passenger, don’t hesitate to give Umbrella Law a call so we can outline your legal options and recommend a best course of action
