Sometimes, life takes an unexpected turn. For some, it’s a minor bump on the road, but for others, it’s a life-altering event, like a motor vehicle collision. Having someone knowledgeable to turn to can make all the difference during these times. This is where Rick Mallett and his personal injury law firm, Hammer Injury Law, come in.
Introducing Hammer Injury Law
Founded in 2023, Hammer Injury Law represents Rick’s belief in a hands-on and client-focused approach to personal injury law. Before we delve deeper into the firm’s mission, it’s crucial to understand the journey that led Rick here.
Meet Rick Mallett, Like the Hammer
In 1990, Rick began his legal career in Alberta, initially focusing on insurance defence. Rick acted for many of the major insurers in Canada, Alberta, NWT and Yukon. As well, Rick defended dental malpractice claims. This experience gave him invaluable insights into the legal dynamics of personal injury cases from a different lens. His dedication to the field earned him respect in the Alberta legal scene. After a decade, armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience, Rick decided to transition his role. He joined a prominent personal injury law firm in Edmonton, where he shifted his attention towards representing individuals injured in motor vehicle collisions. Rick was determined to ensure that victims of accidents received not only compensation but genuine understanding and representation.
Two decades flew by, filled with professional growth, acknowledgment, and accomplishments. From consistently making it to the Best Lawyers annual list to being named Lawyer of the Year for Class Action Litigation, Rick’s contribution to the field was notable. His leadership roles, such as serving as the President of the Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association, further showcased his commitment to the legal community.
Rick Noticed that Injury Law Was Changing
What sets Hammer Injury Law apart? Its primary focus is on victims of motor vehicle collisions and the debilitating injuries they sustain. The boutique nature of the firm allows Rick to offer a tailored experience to his clients. Here, he can ensure that every individual gets the attention they deserve, guiding them through the complex legal maze with clarity and transparency.
Hammer Injury Law focuses on assisting those affected by:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Whiplash-associated disorders
- Chronic pain
- And even, tragically, cases resulting in death
Rick’s vast experience equips him with the know-how to navigate these intricate cases, ensuring victims can rebuild and find some semblance of normalcy post-trauma.
Hammer Injury Law is Here to Help
Navigating the complexities of personal injury claims often feels daunting, not just because of the legal intricacies but also due to the looming financial implications. Recognizing this, Hammer Injury Law has built its fee structure around transparency and accessibility.
First and foremost, Hammer Injury Law understands the uncertainty that engulfs potential clients when contemplating legal action. Many wonder, “Can I afford this?” or “Is this the right step?” Hammer Injury Law offers free initial consultations to alleviate these concerns and provide clarity. This meeting isn’t about financial commitments but about understanding your situation, offering guidance, and charting the potential way forward.
If, after the consultation, you decide to entrust us with your case, our fee system is straightforward: we operate on a contingency basis. What this means for you is that there are no upfront charges or hidden costs. Instead, our remuneration is tied to the outcome of your case. We’re essentially investing in your cause, championing for the best possible outcome. Only when we succeed in securing a settlement for you will a predetermined percentage be allocated for our services.
This approach ensures two things: one, it reaffirms our commitment to your case, as our success is directly tied to yours. And two, it eases your financial burden during a challenging time, allowing you to focus on recovery and rehabilitation without the added stress of accumulating legal fees.
At Hammer Injury Law, it’s not just about the legal journey but about making that journey as smooth and manageable as possible for every individual we represent.
A Firm That’s Also a Family
At the heart of Hammer Injury Law is its commitment to legal excellence and its close-knit, family-driven team. One of the most distinctive features of the firm is its unique blend of professional expertise and familial warmth.
Rick isn’t navigating the challenges of the legal world alone. By his side, both at home and work, is Christine, his wife. As the Office Manager, she ensures that the day-to-day operations run smoothly. Her meticulous attention to detail and her innate ability to create a welcoming environment for clients are foundational to the firm’s success. Moreover, her role as a Legal Assistant means she’s deeply involved in case management, bringing administrative efficiency and a personal touch to every client interaction.
The family theme continues with their son, Jonah, who serves as a Legal Clerk. Jonah brings a fresh perspective to the firm, complementing Rick’s extensive experience. His involvement signifies the intergenerational commitment of the Mallett family to justice and client service. As a Legal Clerk, Jonah assists in the preparatory work, research, and documentation that form the backbone of every case. Together, this trio embodies the essence of Hammer Injury Law: a perfect blend of experience, innovation, and heart. Clients stepping into their office aren’t just getting legal representation; they’re being welcomed into a family that genuinely cares and works tirelessly for their rights.
Proud to be Based in Edmonton
Community involvement isn’t just a phrase or an afterthought for Rick and the team at Hammer Injury Law; it’s an integral part of their ethos. For them, being deeply rooted in their community means more than just offering legal services; it’s about forging genuine connections, understanding local challenges, and actively participating in solutions that create positive change.
Throughout his career, Rick hasn’t just been a lawyer; he’s been a dedicated community advocate. His association with M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) stands a testament to this commitment. Over a span of 15 years, Rick worked relentlessly alongside the organization, aiming to curtail the devastating impacts of impaired driving. The organization recognized his dedication with a 15-year service award, a testament to his sustained efforts to make the roads safer for all.
Rick’s community spirit doesn’t stop there. The Lyon Browning Ladder Project, another significant community initiative, has witnessed Rick’s unwavering support. By collaborating with such initiatives, he aims to address broader societal issues, providing platforms that empower individuals and drive transformative change.
But it’s not just Rick’s individual efforts. Hammer Injury Law, as a firm, has community participation woven into its very fabric. As the firm evolves and grows, its commitment to community outreach and involvement only intensifies. The goal is clear: while the firm aims to secure justice in the courtroom, it is equally resolute about playing a substantial role in enhancing the well-being of the community it’s rooted in. The team at Hammer Injury Law sees a brighter future where legal advocacy and community upliftment go hand in hand.
Understanding the Needs of The Territories
Rick’s vision with Hammer Injury Law isn’t restricted to Edmonton. He recognized a significant gap in personal injury representation in more remote parts of the country, like the Northwest Territories and the Yukon. Having practiced personal injury law in these areas for over two decades, Rick understands their unique challenges and needs. Through Hammer Injury Law, he aims to increase his presence in these regions, providing their residents with much-needed personal injury law support.
