Prince George Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

While anyone can be injured in a slip and fall accident, some groups of people are at a higher risk of sustaining serious injuries. These include older adults, who are more likely to be injured in slip and fall accidents due to decreased mobility, balance issues, and other age-related factors.

According to the World Health Organization, falls present a global public health risk for adults over the age of 60. In Canada, falls are the leading injury-related cause of seniors’ hospitalizations, and account for more than half of their injury-related fatalities.

If you were involved in a slip and fall accident and sustained compensable injuries as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. That is because, in accordance with the British Columbia Occupiers Liability Act, property owners and occupiers are legally required to ensure that their premises are safe for visitors. If their failure to do so causes an accident in which someone is injured, these property owners/occupiers might be considered negligent. Therefore, they may be liable for damages arising from those injuries.

The term “occupier” refers to a person who has physical possession of the property or who has responsibility for and control over the condition of the property. Examples of occupiers might include property owners, landlords, business owners, property managers, tenants, and other people or entities who have control over the property.

Under the BC Occupiers Liability Act, occupiers have a duty to take reasonable care to ensure that visitors are safe while on their premises. This duty includes inspecting the property for potential hazards, warning visitors of any known hazards, and taking reasonable steps to prevent accidents from occurring.

Oftentimes, injury-causing slip and fall accidents are the result of an occupier’s failure to address potentially dangerous maintenance issues on their property in a timely, thorough manner. These hazards might sound harmless, but they can cause unsuspecting accident victims years of physical pain, psychological trauma, and financial difficulties. Examples of potential hazards on commercial and residential properties include:

  • Ice and snow
  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Uneven or broken floors and stairs
  • Broken or missing handrails
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Loose or torn carpeting
  • Obstructed walkways
  • Hazardous debris
  • Potholes in parking lots
  • Cracked pavement
  • And more

Depending on the severity of the injuries sustained in a slip and fall, the damages associated with them can be significant. Injured accident survivors are often saddled with expensive costs of medical treatments, attendant care, housekeeping services, and other necessary lifestyle adjustments. They might also incur financial losses related to lost wages and reduced future earning capabilities, if their injuries prevent them from returning to work in their chosen occupational field.
