I am Joseph A. Nagy, and I am an experienced Edmonton injury lawyer serving central and northern Alberta. As a “car accident lawyer”, my life’s work is helping those who have suffered injuries in all types of motor vehicle accidents.
Regardless of your type of injury or how it happened, my Edmonton Injury Lawyer Free Consultation Guide can help you gain maximum value from your free consultation.
When you are my client, I prepare your case for trial. If settlement happens along the way, that will be a good thing. I do not prepare cases to settle them, and I do not passively gather medical evidence to present to the insurer to ask for money. This is poor advocacy. This is not “building an injury case” for the client.
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.
I receive many inquiries from people who have tried unsuccessfully to complete the required steps in the personal injury claim process themselves. They start out believing they can settle their claim with the insurance company by themselves. Inevitably, they require a lawyer to file a Statement of Claim with the Court to protect their right to sue. By then, however, they have already prejudiced their case by releasing critical information to the insurance company, information that they did not have to provide. This makes it difficult for your lawyer to protect your interests. My advice: get personal injury law advice up front!
