Choosing a Personal Injury & Disability Lawyer in Calgary
If you have suffered a personal injury or your disability claim has been denied, an experienced lawyer may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve. You want to be sure you choose an experienced lawyer that puts your best interests first. Follow these tips to help you find the right personal injury and disability lawyer in Calgary.


  • Choose a Lawyer Focused on Personal Injury and Disability Law
    This area of law can be very complex. A lawyer who works exclusively in these areas will have a better understanding of the issues and challenges involved.
  • Ask Questions
    During your initial conversation, you should be sure to ask the law firm plenty of questions to find out more about their practice and experience. Some important information to ask about includes: the number of past cases and successes, whether they are prepared to represent you in a trial if the case proceeds to that, if the initial consultation is free and if you are able to meet with the lawyers who would be working on your case.
  • Be Sure You Fully Understand the Fees Involved
    Before hiring a lawyer, you want to be sure you fully understand their fees. Be sure to ask questions about this so there are no surprises at the end of your case. Ask if fees will be more if the case takes a long time, what payment is required if you don’t win the case and what case-related expenses you will be required to reimburse.

If you need a personal injury and disability lawyer in Calgary, you want to be sure you choose the right one for your case. Ask questions when meeting with potential candidates and take the time to fully understand the fees involved before proceeding.
