What is the legal requirement for a claim to be classified as a personal injury?

In order to be classified as a personal injury, a claim must be able to determine that the harm was caused due to another person’s negligence. Although most people are aware that injury refers to physical harm, a personal injury claim can also include compensation for emotional and psychological harm. Compensation for this type of negligence falls under tort law.

Moustarah & Company has two decades of experience with many different types of injuries resulting from motor vehicle collisions and other types of personal injury incidents. We know that no two

incidents are the same and take time with our clients to understand how the legal complexities of personal injury law apply to your situation.

 Do all types of personal injury qualify for compensation?

 Personal Injury Types

There are extensive categories of injuries that legally qualify for compensation. Qualified legal support can guide you through these exhaustive categories and ensure you understand all your legal rights when you have had life altering injuries. Compensation claims are typically based on an assessment of the types of injuries received and the severity of the injuries. Some example of severe injuries that would commonly be applicable include:

  • Significant loss or limitation of an organ
  • Dismemberment
  • Bone fractures
  • Disfigurement
  • Permanent Scarring
  • Major or Expensive Surgery

The loss of a loved one in any circumstance can be overwhelming; but when the loss of life was due to negligence it can be particularly traumatising and difficult to reconcile. This type of event is legally classified as wrongful death and family members may claim compensation for the significant impacts that accompany loss of life.

The guidelines in Section 3 of Alberta’s Fatal Accidents Act, state that only the deceased’s spouse, adult independent partner, parent, child or siblings are able to make a wrongful death claim.

What impacts and expenses are compensated for in a personal injury claim?

Many types of financial hardship including unexpected medical expenses associated with personal injury will be accounted for in your claim but additional impacts to your health and quality of life are also considered. Impacts and expenses that may be considered often include:

  • Loss of income
  • Medical expenses including surgery
  • Loss of partner support and companionship
  • Home and vehicle disability accommodations
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional or psychological pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life

Only a qualified personal injury lawyer can fully assess all the impacts that are compensated for under the law which is why it is in your best interest to access a free consultation to discuss your potential claim. To receive the full settlement you are entitled to, a competent analysis of all the

impacts and expenses related to your injury is required. We care about our clients and consider the impacts they are experiencing now, and may experience in the future, when doing a careful, professional and compassionate assessment of their claim.

I’ve received a settlement offer. Is it too late to consult a personal injury lawyer?

No, it is not too late. Too often personal injury victims feel pressured to sign a settlement offer prior to having a legal assessment of your claim or fully understanding the full medical and other life-altering

impacts their injury will have as time goes on. At Moustarah & Company we have the experience and patience to guide you and recommend the proper medical assessments necessary to fully understand your claim and compensation.

It is in your best interest to have a legal expert review the settlement documentation and ensure it does not undervalue the compensation you are legally entitled to before signing anything. Receiving timely legal advice can often save you from financial hardship down the road by identifying areas you (or the insurance company) have overlooked.

A timely settlement offer can seem attractive when you are already experiencing stress and hardship from a personal injury. Unfortunately an insurance company does not work for you and will be looking to offer a quick, seemingly attractive offer to close their claim. Our personal injury lawyers are

working for you, walking along your legal journey with you, and diligently considering all the angles of personal injury law to protect you.
