How Do I prove my Motor Vehicle Accident Case?

A: Navigating the Legal Intricacies of an MVA Case in Alberta

Navigating a motor vehicle accident case's legal intricacies can be complex. With over 20 years of dedicated experience in this field, I've honed a strategic process to ensure that the rights and interests of our clients are robustly represented. When it comes to proving your motor vehicle accident case, here's our approach:

Establishing Liability

First and foremost, we need to determine who was at fault for the accident. Under Alberta's Traffic Safety Act and other related legislation, every motorist has a duty to drive safely and responsibly. If another driver fails in this duty, they may be liable for the accident. This process involves careful examination of the accident scene, witness accounts, and applicable laws.

Evidence Collection

Effective evidence is crucial. Our team will work diligently to gather:

  • Accident Scene Photos: Images capturing the location, vehicle damages, road conditions, and any other pertinent scene details.
  • Witness Statements: Accounts from those who witnessed the accident can be instrumental in corroborating your version of events.
  • Police Reports: If law enforcement was called to the scene, their report could provide an objective account of the accident and any traffic law violations.
  • Surveillance Footage: If available, videos from nearby traffic cameras or businesses can clearly depict the incident.

Documenting Injuries

Establishing a direct link between the accident and the injuries you've sustained is imperative. This involves:

  • Medical Records: Immediate and ongoing records that detail the nature, extent, and prognosis of your injuries.
  • Expert Medical Opinions: Testimonies from medical professionals can help establish the severity of your injuries and future implications.

Economic and Non-economic Damages

We'll substantiate all the losses you've incurred due to the accident:

  • Lost Wages: If the accident has impacted your ability to work temporarily or permanently.
  • Medical Bills: Present and future medical expenses related to the accident.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical pain and emotional trauma.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: If your quality of life has been diminished due to the accident.

This legislation governs motor vehicle accident claims in Alberta. As your representatives, we ensure adherence to all protocols, including liaising with insurance companies to seek a fair settlement or, if necessary, proceeding to trial.
