When Not to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

Jun 4, 2021

At Litco Law, we’ll always help you find a solution, even if we aren’t it. If you have recently been injured in an accident, you may be wondering if there are any instances where you may not need to hire a lawyer. This usually comes down to a question of injuries and who’s at fault. If someone else’s carelessness or negligence led to you or someone you love being injured, it’s always a good idea to talk to a Personal injury lawyer. But just because an accident has happened, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should automatically hire an injury lawyer.

There is generally only one instance where you may not need to hire a Personal Injury lawyer…

  • No physical or psychological injuries = no personal injury claim. Any type of accident can be traumatic and cause damage to vehicles, boats, property and more but, if you were not injured, you will not be able to make a Personal Injury claim.

If you were partially at fault for an accident, you may still be able to make a claim. The key thing to be aware of is that another party must have at least partially contributed to the accident or injury, in order for us to make a claim against the party at fault. In the case of a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA), it’s important to be aware that the insurance company of the other party may lead you to believe you were at fault, in the hopes that they won’t have to pay you as much money. Accidents happen quickly and it’s not uncommon to be unable to recall exactly what happened. Thankfully, police records, physical evidence, video footage, and eyewitness accounts can all help to determine what really happened. It won’t cost you anything to speak to one of our injury lawyers and, even if you don’t choose us, you may learn that you are eligible for other benefits or resources that could help with your recovery. 

If you were in an accident and you are unsure if you were at fault, don’t hesitate to give us a call. It won’t cost you anything to meet with a lawyer to find out exactly what your rights are and if you are a good candidate to file a claim against the at-fault party.

    IMPORTANT! If you agree to an insurance company’s settlement offer, you give up your legal right to pursue a personal injury claim. It is best to assess the full extent of your injuries and how they will affect your life before you accept an offer. Please note that you have a maximum of two years from the date of the accident to file an injury claim in Alberta.
