Minor Injury Lawyer

Written by Joseph A. Nagy

Call Me Before Settling with the Insurance Company

My name is Joseph A. Nagy, and I am an experienced minor injury lawyer (soft tissue injury lawyer). My Edmonton injury law firm serves central and northern Alberta. We specialize in injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents.

You may have been told by an insurance company that your injury is minor and therefore subject to Alberta’s Minor Injury Regulation. As an example, the compensation you receive for a whiplash injury can be “capped” based on that regulation. My advice is to never accept the advice of anyone, including your insurance company, until you have discussed your minor injury with an experienced Alberta minor injury lawyer.

I urge you to call (780) 760-4878 (HURT) or contact me, Joseph A. Nagy, to discuss your minor injury. Ask for a free consultation. It costs you nothing!
