Personal Injury Lawyers In New Brunswick For Canadians Involved In US Car Accidents

New Brunswick is one of the three Maritime provinces on the East coast of Canada. It’s the only province in Canada that has both French and English listed as its official languages.

A beautiful province full of whale-watching, the world’s highest tides, hiking trails, historic houses, and more, New Brunswick is a wonderful place to call home.  Forests cover more than three-quatres of the province, making it the perfect place for nature lovers. From the Bay of Fundy to the Hopewell Rocks, there is something to full your warmer days with easily.

However, come winter, New Brunswick can get seriously cold. Which is why it’s the easy choice for many residents to pack up and head south until warmer weather prevails. Unfortunately, during this winter migration, many New Brunswick snowbirds will find themselves injured in a serious car accident or accident of other kind.

Travelling Is Not Risk-Free

Snowbirds who reside in New Brunswick but vacation in the US may find themselves in need of legal services while down there. The unfortunate reality is that car accidents and other serious personal injury accidents happen every day.  Since many New Brunswick residents opt to drive to their winter residences, driving long hours through unfamiliar locations increases one’s risk of misfortune.  If the fun comes undone due to catastrophic or serious personal injury, Snowbird Accidents is here for you.

Before travelling south, New Brunswick residents need to review their current car, medical and travel insurance. Firstly, you should understand what you are actually covered for. If you’re not sure or you want to purchase extra coverages, you should speak to an insurance broker.  In addition, you need to make sure you have underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage.  Many US car drivers have little or no car insurance.  Your insurance policies travel with and afford your protection across north America.  Importantly you must do this prior to leaving your province.

What Should You Do If You’re Involved in An Accident Outside Of New Brunswick?

New Brunswick Residents Should Seek Legal Services If Involved In A Personal Injury Accident In The US

The law of the state where the accident happened dictates the rights and remedies you have (Tort rights). In most states, you can sue (or be sued) for pain and suffering and any economic losses suffered. Furthermore, each state has different procedural rules as to when and how a claim can be made.  If a claim is not brought against the defendant within the statutory time limits, it will be statute barred and can result in you being denied the compensation you deserve.

For over 35 years, we have been assisting Canadians involved in car accidents and other personal injury accidents in the United States.

Very few lawyers understand the complexity of cross-border accidents. After a car accident or other serious accident, has occurred, you will need a lawyer in both the state the accident occurred and in your home province too. It’s crucial that the two lawyers work collaboratively to ensure your rights and remedies are properly protected.

Snowbird Accidents can arrange for some of the best personal injury lawyers and attorneys to help you navigate this process quickly, without added stress.  Both lawyers share one contingency fee based on the work performed. Since these lawyers work on a contingency basis, you will only pay for the services rendered once your settlement has been received. This helps you to focus on your recovery, not your finances.
