Vancouver Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

Slip and fall accidents are a common occurrence in Vancouver. They can happen anywhere. Without warning, a routine trip to the supermarket, an apartment complex, or another commercial or residential property could turn into a painful, nightmarish experience with long-lasting consequences.

When a slip and fall accident occurs on someone else’s property, the property owner/occupier may be held liable for any injuries that are sustained. That is because, in accordance with the province’s Occupiers Liability Act, the people or entities responsible for commercial or residential properties have a legal duty to ensure that their property is reasonably safe for those who enter it. A property’s owner/occupier may be held liable for any injuries that are sustained due to their negligence.

In the context of premises liability claims, an “occupier” can refer to any person who has responsibility for and control over the condition of the premises, the activities conducted on the premises, or the persons allowed to enter the premises. This means that an occupier can be the owner of the property or someone who is in control of the property, such as a landlord, superintendent, business manager, tenant, property manager, or other party who controls access to the property in question.

If a property’s occupier fails to routinely inspect or adequately address potentially dangerous maintenance issues on their premises, injury-causing slip and fall accidents can occur. Although many hazards might seem commonplace and harmless, the damage they can cause the victims of slips and falls can be profound, impacting them physically, emotionally, and economically.

Some common examples of hazards that often lead to injury-causing slip and fall accidents in Vancouver include:

  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Uneven or cracked pavement
  • Loose or missing handrails
  • Poor lighting
  • Obstructed walkways
  • Icy or snowy sidewalks and parking lots
  • Broken stairs or steps
  • Loose or torn carpeting
  • Potholes or other defects in parking lots
  • And more

While anyone can be injured in a slip and fall, regardless of their age or physical condition, some people are more vulnerable to serious injuries as the result of their involvement in slip and fall accidents. For older Vancouver residents, slips and falls can cause severe injuries. In fact, 95% of older Canadians’ hip fractures are caused by falls.

Owing to various age-related factors, seniors are the demographic at the highest risk of sustaining severe, life-changing injuries as the result of a slip and fall. These injuries might include fractured bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and more.

After being injured in a slip and fall accident, many people incur financial losses as a result. Depending on the severity of the injuries sustained, the damages associated with slip and fall accidents can be significant, including medical expenses, lost wages, and reduced future earning capabilities.

If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, there is no time to waste. It is important to seek the advice of a Vancouver slip and fall accident lawyer as soon as possible.
