Slip and Fall Lawyer Abbotsford

Abbotsford is the fifth-largest municipality in British Columbia, serving as the home to more than 140,000 people, a diverse local economy, and a rich culture of arts and heritage. It is an incredibly unique place to live, and is considered one of the most ethnically diverse areas in all of Canada.

While Abbotsford may be a pleasant to live and work, it is important to remember that the bigger a city is, the more opportunities there are for accidents to occur. At the Preszler Injury Lawyers, we have experience representing those harmed in a myriad of accident types, including serious slip and falls.

Top Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can affect anyone, and can happen nearly anywhere. Indeed, slip and fall accidents happen on public roads and sidewalks, on private property, in businesses and grocery stores, within residential homes/property, in the workplace, within nursing homes, and more. Most slip and fall accidents are the result of a dangerous condition on the property, and likely would not have occurred but for things like:

  • Snow, ice, or water;
  • Wet or sticky surfaces;
  • Broken stairs;
  • Lack of handrails;
  • Defective elevators/escalators;
  • Ripped or torn carpet;
  • Broken or cracked sidewalks;
  • Potholes and other walking hazards;
  • Debris or objects in walkways;
  • Failure to properly assist a patient (i.e. a nursing home patient); and
  • Other hazardous conditions.

If a slip and fall accident is the result of another party’s failure to maintain their property in a safe condition, the victim of the slip and fall has the right to pursue damages.

Many people may consider injuries from slip and falls to be relatively minor or inconsequential, but this is not always the case. While it is true that many people who suffer a slip and fall walk away with nothing more than light bruising, some slip and falls lead to:

These injuries are more than just painful; they may be debilitating and prevent an injury victim from doing the things he or she loves most, returning to work, or even taking care of him or herself. They can be serious enough to lead to psychological injuries, such as depression, or leave permanent scarring, disfigurement, or disability.

Our Slip and Fall Lawyers in Abbotsford are Here to Help

There is nothing fair about suffering a serious slip and fall accident, especially one that would not have occurred but for another’s negligence. If you were injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s property, our lawyers in Abbotsford are ready to investigate your case, identify how the accident occurred, and determine whether the property owner was negligent in failing to remedy the hazardous condition that caused your injury.

In addition to investigating your case and proving negligence, we can also help you to understand what your claim is worth and represent you in negotiating for that settlement amount.

The Time to Act is Now

You do not want to delay in meeting with an Abbotsford lawyer and bringing forth your injury claim after a slip and fall; the statute of limitations is only two years from the date of your accident, and if you wait longer than this to take action, you may be barred from recovery. If your case is against a municipality, then you also have a two-month written notice period.

Before you file a lawsuit, we recommend that you meet with our law firm. We will help you to explore other methods of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and negotiation, to help you avoid going to court. This reduces legal fees and time spent recovering damages.
