Drumheller Personal Injury Lawyers

Since you came to this website, you are obviously searching for a Drumheller personal injury lawyer online. It can be very confusing and frustrating to review multiple websites of Drumheller personal injury lawyers all claiming to be the best and promising to obtain the highest settlement for you!  Some firms even make the unsupported and therefore unethical claim that they have obtained “Alberta’s Largest Injury Settlements”.  A settlement is a private confidential agreement between two parties and a database in Alberta of injury settlements does not exist, so claiming to have achieved the highest settlements is dishonest and self-serving.  We recently settled a $4 Million Traumatic Brain Injury case which is the largest settlement OUR firm has achieved for a brain injury victim, but we have no idea if this is the largest settlement for a brain injury in Alberta.

How much is my injury claim worth?


What you really need is an independent review process that has already scrutinized the lawyers for you pointing you to a highly skilled lawyer and someone you can trust knowing that lawyer will work hard for you and always be honest with you.

Fortunately, in Canada and Alberta there is such an independent review process. It is called a Queen’s Counsel appointment, designated as “Q.C.” for short.  A Q.C. designation of a lawyer dates to the 16th Century in England. In Alberta, Q.C. applications are reviewed by a screening committee comprised of Judges and other lawyers. The Judges and lawyers make recommendations to the Minister of Justice and Cabinet of Alberta for consideration of a Queen’s Counsel appointment.

The Q.C. designation is given to lawyers who demonstrate excellence in the practice of law as well as professional integrity and good character. It is a designation of superior achievement in many aspects of the law, sterling reputation and contributions to society in general.

It is very difficult to obtain the designation of Q.C. That is why you won’t find many Q.C.’s listed in other Drumheller car accident law firms. In searching for a Drumheller injury lawyer, review other websites and see how many lawyers have the designation of Q.C., an independent mark of excellence. In Alberta there are 9,867 active lawyers and of those lawyers only 41 lawyers are chosen every two years to receive the honour of Q.C. That works out to only 20 lawyers per year out of almost 10,000 active lawyers.

Brent Handel was chosen a Q.C. on December 30, 2011 after over 20 years as a practicing lawyer. If you need assistance with your serious complex personal injury or fatal accident claim, contact Brent Handel, Q.C. and rest assured that you will have access to top quality legal counsel to advance your personal injury claim.

Is Your Claim Capped?

If you have been in a serious motor vehicle accident in the Drumheller area, contact our office to deal with your injury claim for compensation. Often, injuries from motor vehicle collisions initially only appear to be soft tissue injuries and possibly subject to the $5,000.00 cap on pain and suffering which exists in Alberta.

However, as is well known in the medical community, and now recognised by our courts of law, soft tissue injuries in a small percentage of cases, approximately 10%, develop into chronic pain cases and never, for unknown reasons, heal completely.

If you are one of those people suffering from chronic pain after what appeared to be initially a soft tissue injury, do not settle your case for the cap. The insurance company will try to convince you to settle for the cap. This is completely unfair.

Contact our office and we will assist you in advancing a much larger claim based on a chronic pain case.

The Canadian Institute for the Relief of Pain & Disability describes chronic pain as “pain that doesn’t go away after three months”. Our Alberta courts have said that in their view, you must have pain for 8-12 months at a minimum to argue for a chronic pain case.

If you are suffering from chronic pain, there is no need to suffer in silence. Reach out and find the resources you need. Talk to your doctor, call and join a support group, talk to family and friends who will provide resources to assist you with a condition which may impair your enjoyment of life for the rest of your life.

At the same time, contact Handel Law Firm at 1 (877) 431-5723 for a free half hour consultation to assess whether or not you really have chronic pain and whether your case warrants hiring a lawyer.

Handel Law Firm handles other types of injuries including bone fractures, spinal cord injury, brain injury, and fatality cases as well. If we accept your case, you do not pay any legal fees unless we are successful in obtaining a settlement or Judgment for you. As well, no legal fees are payable until the matter is actually settled and settlement funds are received.

So, if you have suffered any type of injury in a motor vehicle collision, and you are the innocent victim, phone our office toll free at 1 (877) 431-5723 for a free consultation.
