Don't let an insurance company tell you what your injury claim is worth.
Let our experience work for you.
Whether you have been injured in an automobile accident, or have suffered injury from a slip and fall, Kain Law has the experience to assist you with your claim, and ensure that you obtain the compensation you are entitled to.
Marcy A. Kain has over 20 years of experience in advancing injury claims, including 4 years of experience as counsel for large insurance companies in defending injury actions. Many firms offer personal injury litigation experience to you, but few have had the experience of knowing how an insurer will respond to your claim from the inside. Let that experience from "the other side" work for you in advancing and negotiating proper compensation for your injury claims.
We offer free consultations for injury claims, and in many instances will be able to advance your injury claim on a contingency fee basis (we don't get paid unless you get paid).

Personal Injury Cap
In 2009, the Alberta Court of Appeal upheld the 2004 Minor Injury Regulation. This means that your injury compensation can be limited or capped in certain instances. The cap only applies to automobile accident claims, and only caps or limits certain injuries that are considered "minor" as defined in the regulations. Injury claims for non-minor injuries are not affected by the Regulation.
The cap is adjusted for inflation every year.
For accidents that occurred in 2022, the cap is $5,488.00.
For accidents that occur in 2023, the cap is $5,817.00
In attempting to resolve your injury claim, insurers tend to offer to resolve your injury claim for less than the capped amount, or they neglect to inform you that there might be additional compensation that you are entitled to. If you try to resolve your claim on your own, remember that an insurer cannot give you legal advice, and that it is in their interests to pay out as little as possible to resolve your claim.
