    Slip and Fall Accidents

    Slip and fall accidents can occur as a result of common hazards and negligent conditions on public or private property, including wet floors, improper ice and snow removal, uneven ground and insufficient lighting.

    These accidents can result in various injuries from bruising and soft tissue injuries to serious fractures, head injuries and chronic pain.

    The personal injury lawyers at Zacharias Vickers McCann have experience with all types of slip and fall accidents and will assess your claim, protect your legal rights and ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to.

    The Law in BC

    In British Columbia, the Occupiers Liability Act requires owners and occupiers to keep their property reasonably safe for those using the premises. This duty applies with respect to the premises’ condition, activities on the premises and the conduct of third parties there.

    To prove that an owner or occupier is liable for your injuries resulting from the slip and fall, it is your burden to establish that the owner or occupier failed to keep the premises reasonable safe. It is not sufficient to simply prove that an injury occurred on the premise.

    Negligence and Compensation

    If you have suffered injuries because of a slip or fall that was not your fault, a lawsuit for negligence against the property owner or occupier may be brought to recover compensation for your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of your claim, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, out of pocket expenses, future care costs and a loss of future earning capacity.

    Our personal injury lawyers are here to help. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important to seek legal advice from one of our personal injury lawyers early to ensure you have complied with the limitation periods applicable to your circumstances so you do not jeopardize your claim.
