What types of personal injury qualify for compensation?
Compensation may be determined based on the severity and type of injury. There also may be multiple types of injuries sustained which can have an impact on your claim. Compensation claims typically apply to serious injuries including:
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Bone fractures
- Significant Loss or limitation of an organ
- Expensive surgery procedures
The range of injuries that qualify for compensation can be extensive and it is important that you are properly guided to know your rights when you have been hurt due to a life-changing experience.
The loss of a loved one is another traumatic event that a family member can claim compensation for if the resulting loss of life was due to negligence. This situation is known legally as wrongful death. There are specific guidelines in Section 3 of Alberta’s Fatal Accidents Act stipulating who can make claims for wrongful deaths. Only the deceased’s spouse, adult independent partner, parent, child, or siblings are eligible to make a claim.
What is included in personal injury compensation?
Unexpected financial hardship often accompanies serious personal injury. This is taken into account when assessing a claim but compensation coverage also allows for a variety of additional impacts to your health and wellbeing. Whether your personal injury claim applies to you directly, has impacted a dependant, or resulted in the loss of a loved one it is critical that the full impact be assessed. There are a number of circumstances that your compensation might cover including:
- Surgery & medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Home and vehicle disability accommodations
- Physical pain
- Emotional & psychological trauma

- Loss of partner support and companionship

I’ve received a settlement offer. Is it too late to consult a personal injury lawyer?
No, it is not too late. In fact, before you sign anything it is advisable to have a legal expert review all settlement documentation. We would be happy to ensure your rights to compensation are not being overlooked, saving you from further financial hardship.
A timely settlement offer can provide a sense of relief during a distressful time. However, many settlement offers do not have your personal best interests at heart and may be far less than you deserve. Unlike an insurance company, a lawyer is working for you and taking the diligence necessary to navigate the complexities of personal injury law.
You may also feel pressured to accept an offer soon after you have experienced personal injury. This may occur without having enough time to know the full extent of injury you have sustained. You should not feel pressured to accept a settlement before you are confident in understanding the full impact your personal injury has had. We are here to walk you through the complications you may experience along the way.
