Personal Injury Lawyers in New Glasgow Serving Pictou, Antigonish, and Guysborough Counties for All Kinds of Injury Claims
NOVA Injury Law is a specialty injury law firm in New Glasgow. While other law firms practice a variety of specialty law, we only practice personal injury law. We practice injury and insurance law specifically because our clients deserve the most effective representation possible when they have been injured. The common thread in all our personal injury claims is our commitment to medical understanding and accuracy. We’re the only personal injury law firm in Atlantic Canada with a doctor on the team, and our clients appreciate the advantage this gives them at the negotiating table.
At the end of the day, car accident claims, long-term disability claims, and really, most other personal injury cases come down to medical evidence. NOVA Injury Law is a law firm that combines medical and legal expertise, unlike any other.
We help people who have suffered injury or loss because of someone else’s negligence. No two cases are alike; that’s why we make unique approaches and plans for every single case; we represent clients injured as a result of car accidents, medical malpractice, slips, and falls, and more, as well as those unfairly denied or cut off from long term disability insurance benefits. Victims’ focus should be on healing and recovery, not on where to turn for expertise in injury and insurance law. Place your confidence in our experienced, dedicated team of lawyers and medical professionals.
Is NOVA Injury Law a Good Fit for My Car Accident Claim?
No one is ever prepared to be in a car accident. In the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident, there are several sources of compensation available to injury victims. Everyone knows to report the accident to their own car insurance company and have them pay for the damage to the car and any immediate medical costs associated with the accident. However, not many people are aware that much more money may be available to them if they file a personal injury claim against the driver that caused the accident. A personal injury lawyer will help you determine what your case is worth and take on the complex aspects of litigation for you.
Sometimes injured people get a call from the at-fault driver’s insurance adjuster, looking to settle things quickly and quietly. And sometimes they never hear a word from the other side and just go on with their lives, never knowing what they missed. It is recommended that you do not speak with an insurance adjuster without legal representation.
The truth is, if you’re injured in a car accident that was someone else’s fault, you can claim compensation from their insurance provider for damages related to lost income, lost potential income, pain and suffering, lost enjoyment of life, future healthcare costs, and more. The car accident lawyers at NOVA Injury Law help people access fair compensation for their personal injury claims.
Can Your Firm Assist Me With a Long-Term Disability Benefits Case?
Long-term disability insurance policies are marketed as a safety net if you ever become unable to do your job. But the fact is if the worst happens and your health means you can’t work anymore, the big insurance companies will try everything to deny, reduce, or cut off your benefits. It’s not right, but it is the sad reality that many people are forced to deal with.
At the end of the day, long-term disability claims are built on medical evidence. People need to prove to the insurance company that they have an injury or illness and that injury or illness prevents them from working. How else can you make that argument if not by medical experts’ evidence? NOVA Injury Law is the only long-term disability law firm in Atlantic Canada with a practicing physician that specializes in workplace-related injuries on our team. We double down on medical evidence because we’re good at it, and our clients are the ones who benefit. We have built our firm on medically accurate claims.
Unfortunately, unfair denial and wrongful termination of benefits do happen. The insurance company only really cares about the bottom line, and their adjusters and defense lawyers work around the clock to deny as many claims as possible. NOVA Injury Law levels the playing field for disabled workers by providing them with resources and experienced staff. Anyone who feels they have been treated unfairly by their long-term disability insurance provider can call NOVA Injury Law for a free case review. You’ll learn if you have a legitimate personal injury claim, what your next steps should be, and how we can help.
How can NOVA Injury Law Help Me With a Medical Malpractice Case?
People place a great deal of trust in healthcare providers and don’t plan on something bad happening to them in a hospital or clinic. Unfortunately, there can be a variety of errors or types of medical negligence that occur throughout the healthcare system, even when people are working with good intentions, including surgical errors, misdiagnoses, and treatment or testing errors.
Oversights made by health professionals can result in some of the most severe injuries or illnesses possible. In the worst of cases, it may even result in the death of a patient that could have recovered from the initial concern that brought them to the doctor in the first place. When this happens, people are left feeling overwhelmed, distressed, and uncertain of what their options are; people in this situation don’t often realize what they can be compensated for. People that suffer a serious injury at the hands of those whose job it is to help them can feel betrayed; this may make it difficult for them to trust doctors or avoid care when they need it to avoid going to a hospital where they might be betrayed again.
At NOVA Injury Law, our legal team is dedicated to gathering, analyzing, and presenting complex medical evidence to insurers and before the courts. We help patients who have been injured and bring claims on behalf of a patient’s loved ones if the patient has passed away.
More often than not, victims of medical malpractice are left with more than just the physical consequences of the doctor’s negligence. Many victims suffer various psychological effects from the incident, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, a fear of hospitals, or a change in their regular personality. It is important that injury victims are properly compensated for these psychological effects in addition to their physical injuries, and our legal team will fight to maximize compensation for victims and their families.
Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me With a Claim Related to a Slip and Fall Accident?
A dangerous slip, trip, or fall can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at any time. The law requires that property owners maintain a safe property for visitors in all conditions and times of the year. Despite the clear standard to which property owners are supposed to be held, safety isn’t always guaranteed everywhere we go. In fact, property owners are often found to have deficiencies in their premises that are unsafe, and these may lead to injury for workers or visitors.
Many accidents, including slip & fall cases, usually arise because the owner of a property didn’t realize the danger or because systems were not put into place to fix a potentially dangerous situation. Perhaps, for example, a high-traffic area was not made safe during snow or rain, or a set of steps was not made adequately visible. While the property owner may not have intended for someone to get hurt, an injury claim can be pursued so long as the owner acted negligently. The question to be asked is whether or not the premises were reasonably safe for a visitor.
If you have been injured because of an unsafe location, you should contact our team to discuss the details of your case. We look forward to explaining more about Occupiers Liability law and reviewing the insurance coverage in place at the home or business through which your claim will be pursued.

My Injury Doesn’t Seem That Bad. Should I Still Hire an Injury Lawyer?
If you may have been injured in an accident of any kind, it is crucial that you seek emergency medical care or a follow-up with your primary physician. When your injuries are taken care of, a lawyer can help you document them and file for compensation; accordingly, too often have we seen cases where victims have wound up with worse injuries due to a delay in medical treatment. No case is too small or insignificant to be taken seriously because no one can predict how an injury will affect their overall quality of life until they are in the middle of it. There are also a number of reasons that an accident victim may feel fine immediately after but still need medical attention. Because the way adrenaline is released during dangerous situations affects our bodies, accident victims might not be fully aware of the extent of their injuries right away. Some injuries, like concussions, might not reveal themselves with symptoms until a bit of time after the accident takes place.
While a lawyer can almost always increase the strength of your case, make it easier to file in a timely manner, and assist you with the more stressful aspects of the litigation process, not every case requires the assistance of a lawyer to be successful. A good lawyer will be honest if they do not think their assistance will actually add any value to your personal injury case. If you are not sure if you require the representation provided by a lawyer for your claim, call our office to arrange for a free consultation or to review your legal options.
