More from a Calgary personal injury lawyer about your right to representation following a serious accident.

Your right to consult with and be represented by an experienced personal injury lawyer is key to protecting all of your other rights, and ensures that you have the best possible chance at getting the full compensation you’re entitled to.
Furthermore, you learned that your right to a lawyer also gives you the right to stop being bothered by other lawyers—namely lawyers working for the insurance company(ies) representing the party responsible for your injuries. They may use intimidation or other stressful tactics to encourage you to settle for a lower amount and potentially lose other rights and protections you’re entitled to under the law; as soon as you tell them if have a personal injury lawyer handling your case, they’re legally required to stop contacting you directly and to start working with your lawyer.
