Wagners is recognized as a personal injury law firm that focuses on the rights of those who have been personally injured in New Minas, Nova Scotia and throughout the Maritime Provinces.

Motor Vehicle Accidents and Car Accident Lawyers

As an operator of a motor vehicle, drivers have a huge responsibility to drive in a safe manner to avoid the potential of causing a collision with other drivers or pedestrians. Failure by a driver to operate a motor vehicle in a prudent manner may result in a serious car accident due to the negligence of the operator of the automobile. When an accident occurs, and injuries result in a motor vehicle accident, persons who are injured and are victims of the carelessness and negligence of another party have rights. The injured person may pursue compensation for any medical expenses that they may have to pay, any loss of income that may result due to being unable to work, pain and suffering for the harm that was inflicted, and other types of damages by commencing a legal proceeding against the driver who was at fault for the accident.

The lawyers at Wagners represent persons who have suffered catastrophic and/or non-catastrophic injuries from automobile accidents, including car, motorcycle, truck, bicycle and pedestrian accidents in New Minas, Nova Scotia.

The lawyers at Wagner have successfully represented many individuals in a number of different types of cases involving automobile accidents, including collisions resulting from:

  • Speeding or road rage
  • Distracted driving — texting and cellphone use
  • Dangerous road conditions — snow, ice, heavy rain, thick fog, animals and other hazardous conditions
  • Medication use
  • Failure to use proper eye wear
  • Drunk driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Inexperienced drivers failing to pay attention

Slip and Fall Injuries

A slip and fall accident can cause great stress for an individual who has been injured through no fault of their own. Not only would it have a serious effect on a person’s health due to the injuries that they received, the innocent party may also have to deal with an impact on their finances and ability to make ends meet. A fall on messy or unclean property, for example, can result in injuries that prevent the person who slipped and fell from carrying out their daily duties at their place of employment. A person’s finances may be adversely affected, and being able to provide for themselves or their family can lead to undue stress and hardship. Under many circumstances, a person who has suffered a slip and fall injury may be able to commence a lawsuit if they were injured due to negligence of the property owner or occupier of the property if that person did not take appropriate steps or remedies to ensure that the property was hazard free and did not constitute a dangerous environment to visitors, guests or the general public.

There is an expectation that commercial, private or public properties or premises must be free and clear of threats or perils by the owner or manager of the location. If the premises are not properly maintained numerous hazards may exist, resulting in significant injuries to visitors, such as:

  • Water spills
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Snow and ice on sidewalks
  • Fallen debris

A lawsuit may also be filed if the security of the property is found to be negligent and which has caused a situation where an individual suffers a slip-and-fall. Improper or no signage or warnings about the state of the property or any hazards that may exist may also have an impact on a legal proceeding, depending on the circumstances of the case.

An experienced slip and fall lawyer at Wagners can advise you about your rights, including how much time you have to commence a proceeding against the individuals or companies that are involved with the premises, whether it be ownership, maintenance or some other connection. When suffering an injury as a result of a slip-and-fall, it is also important to seek immediate medical treatment from a qualified medical professional so that the injuries are fully documented, including the cause for the injuries and the treatment received, even if at the time the injuries appear to be minor or not serious.

Birth Injuries

Along with the joy of parenthood comes worries and concerns about the health of your newborn child. Most births proceed smoothly and without difficulty, but those first few hours and days are especially important and your child’s health can depend on whether the care he or she is given during the birthing process is appropriate, proper and handled with the utmost standard of care. If complications occur during the birth or delivery of your child, and those medical professionals who have been entrusted to provide appropriate and excellent care were negligent in the birthing and delivery process, serious and irreversible catastrophic injuries may affect your baby for the rest of their life, which will also have an immediate and detrimental impact on you and your spouse’s lives. At Wagners, we focus on serious birth and delivery cases where the child, or the mother, suffers serious and adverse consequences. We provide strong representation for the families who have been affected by a birth gone wrong due to negligence of medical professionals. We have broad experience in handling birth injuries, and we will pursue your case with the utmost care, skill, knowledge, experience and compassion.

Trauma which occurs at birth may result in serious and significant damage to the tissues and organs of a baby (trauma), or a newborn’s systems (injury) due to the negligence of a medical professional during the childbirth process and the trauma inflicted as a result of inappropriate or improper procedures.

Our birth injury lawyers will stand by your side as we make all efforts on your behalf, and your child’s, to obtain appropriate compensation for the harm caused to you and your family. Wagners represents many families in a wide range of serious birth injury cases, including situations involving:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Failure in genetic testing (screening for birth defects)
  • Failure to perform a C-section
  • Injuries from failure to monitor the baby
  • Infant brain damage

Birth injuries can be lengthy and complex cases and the team at Wagners has established themselves to be knowledgeable and effective in this area of law. Our firm has extensive resources that we utilize when we are involved on your behalf in complicated birth injury lawsuits. Wagners has in depth knowledge of the case law for birth injury and medical malpractice cases.

Wrongful Death

The loss of life can have ramifications for many family members who have lost someone close or dear to them due to the negligence of other persons. A fatality which happens as a result of negligence or misconduct can be considered a wrongful death. Wrongful deaths can occur when patients did not receive the appropriate or proper treatment or care that is expected to be provided by medical professionals.

When someone dies or passes away while under the care of a hospital or other medical professionals the result is always devastating to those left behind. This grief and loss is exacerbated if the death was preventable or is directly attributable to the failure of those in the fields of medicine and care.

A wrongful death lawsuit is never a pleasant situation to be involved in. Wagners has assisted many Survivors or the Estate of the deceased by commencing wrongful death lawsuits against those medical professionals who have contributed to the untimely passing of a loved one as a result of their negligence or failure to provide an appropriate standard of care. Although the loss of a loved one has far-reaching impacts, compensation can be awarded for the loss to the beneficiaries of the deceased. In general, family members who seek compensation as a result of the wrongful death of a loved one may obtain damages as a result of the survivors’ loss of companionship, as well as expenses associated with the wrongful death, such as funeral expenses or other ancillary losses.

Wagner’ Medical Malpractice team is committed to representing those family members who are pursuing wrongful death claims as a result of a loved one’s death, holding hospitals, health care facilities and medical professionals responsible for their actions. The loss of a close family member or friend can never be made up for with words or actions, but financial compensation may provide some assistance to those who have been left behind after the untimely death of a relative. The emotions felt in in wrongful death claim are undoubtedly overwhelming and the legal procedures involved are likely the last thing anyone wants to have to deal with or think about. Let an accident lawyer at Wagners guide and represent you through the process. We are known as a law firm that provides clients with compassionate and caring legal representation and we ensure that we provide the highest quality of our legal knowledge in a straightforward an meaningful way for clients in New Minas, Nova Scotia and beyond.

Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals are employed to assist members of society who have suffered illness, disease, injuries and other physical conditions. A large amount of trust in hospitals, physicians and others has been placed on practitioners by the general public. All treatment providers are expected to perform their duties to the highest standards of competency and professionalism as may be required. There is a great onus on professionals in the field of medicine that they provide appropriate medical care in a way that ensures that a patient’s safety and well-being is not jeopardized. A doctor, general practitioner, specialist physician, nurse or any other medical professional who performs his or her duties in an unsafe or negligent way may be detrimental to the overall health and safety of the patient who they have been entrusted to provide care. Serious and life-changing or life-altering injuries may result due to the negligence of a medical professional or hospital.

Wagners’ medical malpractice lawyers represent many patients in New Minas, Nova Scotia who have been seriously harmed due to alleged medical negligence.

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
