Leading Calgary Lawyers Assisting Clients with Serious Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice
At Cuming & Gillespie in Calgary, we have built a reputation as recognized leaders in the areas of Serious Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Law. It is our policy to act only for those who have suffered serious personal injury, loss, or death, which were caused by the fault of others. We do not represent defendants in any case, including in cases of medical malpractice.

Acting Only for those who have been Seriously Injured
We limit the cases we take on by acting on behalf of those who have been seriously injured. By doing so, we are able to better commit our time, energy and resources to provide the best representation for our clients. We work diligently to ensure our clients receive fair compensation for the injuries they have sustained and for any related losses they have suffered.
Our practice is unique not only because of limiting our representation to those who have been injured but also by how we handle our files. Each file has one lawyer who is primarily responsible for handling the claim; however, we take a collaborative team approach to each case, which means there are multiple lawyers engaged in the claim. This ensures that each file is being handled with the utmost care, and we are able to cover all the potential issues that may arise throughout the lifespan of the claim. Multiple sets of eyes are always better than one, and our highly experienced lawyers work together to provide the best possible representation during what can be a very difficult time.
This collaborative approach also allows for clients to easily contact the firm and ask questions about their claim, regardless of whether the primary lawyer is available or not. This also helps us deal with any time-sensitive or urgent matters that may develop in your case. We can use the experience and skills of our entire legal team to the benefit or all our clients.
Maximizing Medical Recovery
At Cuming & Gillespie, we believe that rehabilitation is just as important as obtaining fair financial compensation for your loss. We will help you with your legal matters, but we will also help you find the care you need. This includes:
- Assisting you with locating and securing proper medical care;
- Assisting you with locating and securing income benefits while your case progresses;
- Assisting you with locating and securing rehabilitation facilities and counsellors; and
- Proving a network of support and compassion when things seem to be at rock bottom.
We take an active role in your recovery because we have a deep interest in getting you back on your feet.
