Best Injury Lawyer 2023 (Alberta): Joseph A. Nagy
Presented by Elite Legal Awards
What is the first thing to know about our Best Injury Lawyer 2023 (Alberta): Joseph A. Nagy? We could talk about his growing reputation as Alberta’s toughest injury lawyer or how he is a powerful ally for his clients. As one client put it: “He did a fantastic job and if you get to see him in action…. he’s a shark!” We could say Joseph A. Nagy is a personal injury lawyer who won’t stop fighting until his clients get all the compensation they deserve. As another client said: “I clearly remember him saying no that’s not enough. Sending the insurance lawyers to renegotiate. I remember his saying. NO I want it all. We did get it all.” Those client quotes give you a pretty good sense of Joseph A. Nagy’s fierce advocacy for his clients. But maybe those aren’t the first things to know.
The first thing to know may actually be that almost all of his clients know Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton injury lawyer, as Joe. Typically, it won’t start off that way. Most injury clients are new clients. They have never been injured before. They have never needed an injury lawyer. They hope they never need one again. But from the moment they walk into the offices of Joseph A. Nagy Injury Law, they will sense a difference.
This isn’t some corporate legal firm stuck in a high-rise building. And Joe is not some slick corporate injury lawyer. His offices are located on an easily accessed, tree-lined neighbourhood street. Free parking here. Wheelchair accessible. Go in and you immediately receive a friendly greeting and are made to feel welcome. Joe’s staff obviously enjoy working for him. Like Joe, they emphasize the “personal” in personal injury law.
Perhaps you have been injured and you are meeting Joe for a free consultation meeting. Maybe you are already a client and there for a follow-up meeting. Or maybe you are a former client who has dropped by to say “Hi”. It doesn’t matter. You will meet Joe.
That emphasis on “personal” points to a fundamental difference between Joseph A. Nagy Injury Law and other major Edmonton injury law firms. Joe personally meets with you from your first free consultation meeting until your case is resolved. He gets to know you. When you hire Joe, you get Joe.
How can he do that?
Let’s start with the focus of his practice. Joseph A. Nagy Injury Law exclusively represents people injured in motor vehicle accidents. The Law Society of Alberta has strict rules about lawyers not referring to themselves as experts or specialists. Nonetheless, Joseph A. Nagy injury law can legitimately claim to be Edmonton’s foremost car accident injury law firm.
Focussing on injuries arising from motor vehicle accidents doesn’t mean you have a small injury law practice. It can just mean you are the best at what you do. Motor vehicle accidents, from multiple vehicle, truck, and car accidents to motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents happen all too frequently. In 2020, the most recent year for which statistics are available, Alberta had close to 100,000 collisions resulting in more than 12,000 injuries. Of course, those injuries can range from wrongful death, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal injuries, to broken bones, chronic pain, and minor injuries.
Joe has experience with every imaginable type of motor vehicle accident and injury. He has successfully resolved many thousands of injury claims from car accidents. He knows the law and the legal rulings that can impact your compensation. Joe’s exclusive focus on injuries from car accidents and his more than 17 years of experience enable him to understand the unique circumstances of each client’s accident and injury. That ultimately helps him build a strategy to win each client’s personal injury claim. But he certainly doesn’t do it alone.
That leads us to Joe’s team. They help create the welcome atmosphere we mentioned. Some work more in the foreground and others in the background. Reviews can tell you a lot about a personal injury law firm, so you will see lots of accolades like “great team,” “full of compassion,” and “extremely helpful.” Joe’s team is also experienced, expert, and professional.
Nicole Adams, Joe’s Senior Legal Assistant, has been with Joe for many years and is frequently mentioned in client reviews (“knowledgeable and easy to work with,” “professional and great at her job”). When you are injured, the personal injury claim process can be daunting or even overwhelming. You have forms to complete. Deadlines to meet. Questions you need answered. Negotiations that must be conducted. What do you tell the insurance company? Are there things you shouldn’t tell the insurance company? Do you mention your accident on social media? Joe and his team make navigating the entire personal injury claim process as straightforward as possible. Nicole plays a major role here. She makes sure your questions are promptly answered. Everything is done on schedule. You are always updated. You are never out of the loop. With Joseph A. Nagy Injury Law, you get to focus on your own health and recovery knowing that Joseph A. Nagy will be there to help you and make sure you receive all the compensation you deserve.
One client raved that Joe “makes money happen!!!” But how exactly does Joseph A. Nagy obtain maximum compensation for his clients? Joe calls the process “building an injury law case.” He starts from the fundamental proposition that a personal injury lawyer is an ally of their clients. Joe wants to maximize the compensation his clients receive. When Joe builds a personal injury case, he has to prove your damages warrant the maximum compensation you deserve.
That’s where other members of Joe’s team come in. Joseph A. Nagy Injury Law works with personal injury experts to prove damages. Which experts are needed depends on the case and the damages sought in the personal injury claim. For instance, damages might be for pain and suffering, medical expenses, future care, and loss of income or income earning capacity. For such a claim, Joe’s personal injury expert team might include medical, accident reconstruction, functional capacity, and economic loss experts. Joe only uses top-notch specialists who have been qualified by the Alberta Court of King’s Bench to testify in their respective capacity.
Joe explains his strategy: “I prepare cases to go to trial. I build an injury case by using scientific, medical, and other personal injury experts who are prepared to testify at trial. Insurance companies know I build injury cases that increase their risk of not settling. The outcome is that the insurance companies settle most claims. My clients receive more compensation after my fee is paid than the insurance company was offering. I take great pride in standing up for the little guy and making insurance companies pay fair compensation. I like that my clients have more money in their pockets.”
Personal injury claims can be complex, and insurance companies don’t like to pay the compensation you, the injury victim, may deserve. That can mean that a personal injury claim can drag on for years before you receive compensation. When that happens, you need an injury lawyer who cares about his clients and is willing to support and fight as long as it takes. Joseph A. Nagy never stops fighting. Perhaps we can best sum up Joseph A. Nagy’s determination to stand up for the little guy with another client quote: “I worked with Joe for almost 4 years after my accident and I can honestly say he worked very hard for me. There are very few in the legal world that actually care about you, that see you as more than a pay check, Joe is one. When I was suffering, he went out of his way to make sure I was ok…. He is thorough, thoughtful and will be an absolute shark in fighting for you. Thanks for all your help Joe!”
