TORT CLAIMS IN CALGARY

If you‘ve been in an accident, you may be wondering if you have a valid tort claim. A tort is a civil wrong committed by one person against another, resulting in injury or damage. In order to have a successful tort claim, you must be able to show that the other party was at fault, and that you suffered damages as a result of their actions.

There are many different types of torts, but some of the most common include negligence, intentional torts, and strict liability torts. If you‘ve been injured in an accident, you may have a claim for one of these torts.

Negligence is the most common type of tort claim. To succeed on a negligence claim, you must show that the other party owed you a duty of care, that they breached that duty, and that you were injured as a result. For example, if you‘re injured in a car accident, you may be able to show that the other driver was negligent in their actions.

Intentional torts are exactly what they sound like torts that were committed on purpose. If you‘ve been the victim of an intentional tort, you‘ll need to show that the other party acted with the intention of causing you harm. Assault, battery, and defamation are all examples of intentional torts.

Strict liability torts are those where the other party is liable for your damages even if they didn‘t do anything wrong. These torts usually apply in situations where there‘s a risk of serious injury, such as with defective products. If you‘ve been injured by a defective product, you may have a claim under strict liability.

If you‘ve been injured in an accident, you may have a valid tort claim. Speak to an experienced personal injury attorney to learn more about your legal rights and options.

How Our Attorneys Handle Tort Claims

The first thing you should do in any personal injury case is to gather evidence. We will investigate the accident, collect witness statements, and review any available video footage. Once we clearly understand what happened, we can start building your case.

We will then draft and file all the necessary paperwork, including the complaint, summons, and appropriate motions. We will also ensure all communication with the insurance companies and the other parties involved in your case.

Once we have gathered evidence, we will work to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company. However, if the insurance company is challenging to deal with or is not open to offering fair compensation, we are prepared to take your case to court.
