Motor Vehicle Accidents Lawyer In Kentville, Nova Scotia. Car Accident Lawyers.

Persons who are licensed to operate a motor vehicle are responsible for operating their vehicle in a prudent manner to lessen the chance of being involved in an accident which may cause harm to other motor vehicle operators or pedestrians. If the operator a vehicle fails to observe the rules of the road, grave consequences may result if they cause a car accident. Any person who suffers harm or damages due to the negligence of a driver of a car has the right to seek compensation for their losses. In many cases, an injured party may recover monies for treatment costs, pain and suffering and time lost from their employment, in addition to other forms of compensation. This can be accomplished by bringing a lawsuit against the at-fault operator of the motor vehicle.

Wagners consists of a team of lawyers and paralegals who represent individuals who have been injured through no fault of their own.

Slip and Fall Injuries Lawyer in Kentville, Nova Scotia

Persons who suffer injuries because of a slip and fall encounter difficulties in many aspects of their life. In addition to the personal injuries one may receive, hardship of a financial nature will also cause a stressful impact. Being unable to work due to falling on an unkempt premise may cause a person to miss substantial time from their job. This can cause many problems for the individual and their family if their income is impacted because of a slip and fall. In many cases, people who fall and become injured may have an opportunity to bring a lawsuit if it can be proven that the location where they fell was hazardous and the person or company responsible did not fulfill their duties to ensure that the property was safe.

All properties, whether they be private, public or commercial in nature, should not contain any hazards and it is the responsibility of the person who owns or manages the premises to ensure that is the case. Many types of situations and events can lead to injury of a visitor to a property. Significant injuries have resulted because of:

  • Spill of liquid or other slippery substances
  • Improper or no lighting
  • Neglected maintenance and
  • Sidewalks blocked by debris, snow or ice

It is important for owners and managers of a property to ensure that appropriate signage or information about any potential hazards is well displayed.

Any lawsuit must prove that there was some form of negligence which caused an injury. Slip and fall lawyers at Wagners can guide an individual through the legal process and inform you about your rights along with the requirements under statutory rules and regulations that apply to your case. Any time someone suffers from an injury, especially because of a slip and fall injury caused by another party, quick and appropriate medical attention should be the first order of business. By seeking medical assistance at the earliest opportunity, the harm that has been caused will be recorded which will prove useful in the future when the time comes to evaluate a claim for compensation. Further, seeking medical attention will ensure your injuries will receive early intervention, hopefully resulting in a quick and efficient recovery.

Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Kentville, Nova Scotia

When a person has a medical condition, whether it is from an illness, medical disease or some independent injury, doctors, hospitals and other medical personnel are there to help. The public at large greatly depends on the care they receive from physicians and they are entitled to expect the highest quality of treatment. In the medical profession, a high onus is on professionals to conduct their examinations and treatment in a competent and effective manner. It is paramount that any person who is ill or injured must receive optimum care and compassion, to ensure their recovery in the future. If a medical professional provides treatment in an unsafe and negligent manner, this could lead to even more severe consequences for an individual who requires medical attention and treatment.

The medical malpractice lawyers at Wagners have represented many patients in Kentville, Nova Scotia who received improper treatment from doctors, nurses, hospitals and other medical practitioners. Whether a minor medical procedure has gone wrong, or there is a major occurrence of negligence, this can result in serious and life-altering conditions for an individual, including death. Wagners understands the harm that can result due to improper treatment or inappropriate medical procedures and diagnoses. If it is found that negligence has happened, our firm will commence legal proceedings against all medical practitioners or institutions because of malpractice that has caused injury, illness or death. Wagners has initiated proceedings in the past against physicians, specialists, nurses, doctors and hospitals to ensure they are accountable for their negligent actions and substandard care which has caused our clients serious health repercussions.

Birth Injuries Lawyer In Kentville, Nova Scotia

One of the greatest joys for a person is to welcome a newborn into the family. Infants and young children are especially vulnerable, and it is natural to have concerns, stress and worry through the pregnancy and birthing process. With the advent of modern medicine, thankfully most births occur without incident, but the delivery of the newborn and the critical first few hours and days following the birth are the most sensitive and important times to ensure no problems arise. It is paramount that the highest degree of care is carried out by medical practitioners during these critical hours and days.

In rare cases, where complications arise during birth or post-delivery, negligence by physicians or medical personnel can lead to traumatic and irreversible injuries which will affect the child forever and leave the parents in a life-altering state. During the birthing process, harm can be inflicted on the infant which can lead to consequences which may be irreparable and cause long term damage to the newborn. This harm may be caused by the negligence of a doctor, nurse or hospital during labour or the birthing process.

Wagners has been involved in medical malpractice law for decades and have helped countless children and their family members by providing support and guidance for those who have been severely harmed by the wrong doings of medical professionals. Our firm has handled cases involving birth injuries and trauma over the years and our experience in assisting past clients have shaped the way we approach birth trauma cases.

Birth injury lawyers at Wagners will be there for you to assist you in navigating the legal process and will endeavour to obtain appropriate and just compensation for the harm caused to your infant child and other members. Serious birth injuries may result from medical malpractice, including:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Screening for birth anomalies
  • Not using a C-section method during a difficult delivery
  • Not monitoring a newborn’s first few hours
  • Oxygen deprivation leading to brain damage

While birth injury lawsuits pose a complex and challenging dynamic, the lawyers at Wagners, through our many years of experience, are up to speed on all the complexities related to medical malpractice law. Our firm has the necessary tools and knowledge to assist you in obtaining recovery for damages through a birth injury lawsuit.

Wrongful Death Lawyer In Kentville, Nova Scotia

Losing a close member of your family can be devastating and for those who lose a loved one as a result of negligence by a third party, this can be especially traumatic. When someone dies or is injured fatally in a manner that is caused by negligence of another person, it is considered a wrongful death. In medical malpractice law, a wrongful death can result due to a lack or proper or adequate care provided by medical practitioners.

At anytime an individual loses their life while in the care of a doctor or a hospital, it can be much more devastating to a family when compared to the natural passing of an individual.

No individual wishes to have to commence legal proceedings due to a wrongful death of a family member. Our firm has been involved in many unfortunate lawsuits which we have filed on behalf of an estate against physicians or hospitals whose negligence and lack of appropriate standard of care directly resulted in the passing of a loved one. While no amount of money can ever return what was taken, there are various forms of compensation that can be obtained by the close relatives or beneficiaries of the deceased. Funeral and burial expenses, in addition to loss of care, guidance and companionship, may be available to the loved ones left behind if it is determined that medical malpractice led to the loss of your cherished family member.

The Medical Malpractice team at Wagners assists family members who are seeking to commence a lawsuit for damages due to a wrongful death claim. We have held doctors, physicians, hospitals and other medical professionals responsible for their improper treatment which led to the passing of an individual.

Wrongful death claims require care, compassion and understanding due to the overwhelming emotions that exist. Wagners will assist you with great empathy throughout the legal proceedings as we seek to hold those accountable and obtain proper compensation for you and your family. We will ensure that you will receive the highest quality of our legal service and we will take the time to answer your questions in a meaningful and compassionate way for our clients in Kentville, Nova Scotia and beyond.

5 years ago Ray was recommended to me. I contacted him and he took my medical malpractice case on. Although I was in Cape Breton, Ray met with me on several occasions. He was very professional and the staff took care of me in an excellent way throughout the entire process.When you get hurt in a catastrophic way like I did, taking on legal action is very scary. The process of medical malpractice litigation can be very draining and disturbing to a person. The legal process was very unknown to me. I believe there should be more people like Ray, Kate and Krizia. They went above and beyond. Ray has a great sense of responsibility to his clients.I only saw parts of the legal process but I know they make it a lot easier for people. I am overwhelmed by the kindness and patience of Ray and his entire more

After my accident I was getting nothing but a run around from my insurance company, that is if I could actually get them to answer an email or return a phone call.  I was getting so frustrated that I would just break down and cry.  My father in-law told me it was time for a lawyer. I don't know why I didn't think of it.  Oh wait I do, my insurance company told me that they would take care of me.  Lie number one, they also told me they wanted to take care of everything as quickly as possible so that my life wouldn't be that disrupted. Lie number 2. I did my homework to find someone who would best represent me.  I contacted Wagner law threw their live chat, thank god for live chat because I was in bed in a lot of pain and found it hard to sit and even talk on a phone. they paired me with a member of their firm right away.  I think my lawyer Lisa Wagner was sent from god himself.  I had a lot of questions and she answered every one of them for me and also advised me on a lot of things I didn't know of.  Its because of her i got into see all the right medical professionals and finally started on the road to recovery.  It was a long hard battle but Lisa helped me threw it all.  She was amazing, caring and I truly felt her compassion for me and what I was going threw.  We only met face to face a few times, due to living in different province's, every time we did it was like sitting with an old friend. I would and do recommend Wagner Law to everyone I hear may need a Lawyer and tell all my friends and family if they ever need a lawyer to contact Wagner's. The most stars I'm able to give them is 5 but i think they deserve a 10. Thank you all for everything you have done to help me and my family.  We truly couldn't have got threw this without more
