Penticton Personal Injury Lawyers Fight for Injured Victims

When you suffer injuries due to someone else’s negligence, the last thing on your mind should be how to recover compensation for your losses. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our legal team has the knowledge, experience, and skills to help you recover the highest amount of compensation available by law because personal injury is the focus of our practice. Our firm handles all types of personal injury cases.

Motor Vehicle Accidents and ICBC Claims: Motorists are required to carry minimum coverage from the Insurance Company of British Columbia (ICBC), but you must file a proper claim to recover compensation after a motor vehicle accident. It is necessary to present evidence that the other driver was at fault, and that person’s careless actions caused your injuries.

Mistakes are common with the complicated claims forms, and ICBC agents are always looking for justifications to deny or reduce your claim. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our lawyers work relentlessly to ensure you obtain proper compensation for your losses. We handle such cases as:

Trip or Slip and Fall Cases

Under British Columbia’s Occupiers Liability Act, owners and occupiers of property have a duty to ensure that the premises is reasonably safe for those who enter it. A failure to comply with this legal duty can lead to serious, even deadly, trip or slip and fall accidents. Many factors contribute to these types of claims, including wet floors, poor lighting, ice and snow, debris, cracked pavement, and building code violations.

If you were hurt as a result of a slip or trip and fall, you may be able to file a claim with the insurance company that covers the property where the incident occurred. Our Preszler Injury Lawyers lawyers will get to work on your claim right away by investigating the premises and identifying the dangerous conditions that caused the accident. We will gather proper support to establish the property owner’s negligence and vigorously pursue your claim with the insurance provider.

Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

Injuries from a dog bite are especially troubling because there is often psychological trauma involved in addition to the physical pain. Many victims develop a life-long fear of dogs, which can be debilitating. You may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries, but there are different theories of recovery requiring distinct types of proof.

  • If the animal had attacked before or expressed violent tendencies, you can seek compensation under the “scienter” doctrine.
  • Since property owners are responsible for ensuring the premises are reasonably safe for others, you may have a claim under the Occupiers Liability Act for onsite attacks.
  • You may have a case for negligence if the animal was likely to create a risk of harm to others, and the owner did not take reasonable care to prevent an attack.

Note that, even though these claims are commonly terms “dog bite” cases, you may still take action if you were injured due factors aside from a bite. If you were knocked down, tripped, or pushed, you may still be entitled to compensation.
