Slip and Fall Lawyer Campbell River


Slipping and falling or tripping and falling may seem like an inconsequential event. In fact, most people have experienced a minor slip and fall or trip and fall at some point in their lives; for the clumsier amongst us, this might be a more common experience. Slip and fall accidents are not always harmless, and sometimes serious slip and fall incidents can result in serious injuries. When they do, determining why the slip and fall accident occurred and who should be liable is critical.

At the Preszler Injury Lawyers, we have been serving personal injury clients for nearly 60 years, and we are passionate about recovering compensation for those harmed due to others’ actions. If you are hurt in a slip and fall, please call our law firm directly at 1-800-JUSTICE today for a free consultation.

Slip and Fall Hazards in Campbell River

Campbell River is a city on the East Coast of British Columbia, which means that in addition to standard slip and fall hazards like broken stairs or uneven walking surfaces, additional hazards that Campbell River citizens must deal with can include snow and ice. While some slip and fall hazards may be acts of mother nature that are impossible to stop or prevent, properties can be made safer with diligence and reasonable care. In fact, it is a property owner’s duty to remove snow and ice within a reasonable amount of time. Property owners also have a duty to remedy hazardous conditions on their properties, including objects in walkways that present a trip and fall hazards, defective elevators or escalators, potholes and uneven sidewalks, torn carpet, spills of food or drink, and more.

Injuries from a Slip and Fall can be Serious

When a property owner fails to maintain their property in a safe condition and a serious accident results, the property owner can be held liable for damages. Injuries that are possible in a slip and fall accident include:

  • Head and traumatic brain injuries;
  • Back and neck injuries;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Internal injuries;
  • Bone fracture injuries;
  • Bruises and lacerations;
  • Torn ligaments and tendons; and
  • Soft tissue injuries.

It is important to remember that these injuries are serious, but they are not the only type of harm that a slip and fall victim may incur. To be sure, serious injuries have a number of other repercussions, including the inability to work and lost wages, the demand for medical care and costly medical expenses, and physical pain and suffering. Serious injuries can be disabling long-term, and may result in psychological harm, as well.

You Deserve to be Compensated for Your Injuries

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. Knowing what to do next and taking legal action can be difficult for an accident victim, but meeting with a skilled Campbell River slip and fall lawyer may be your only option for recovering the compensation that you deserve.

As stated above, property owners have a duty of care to those who enter their properties to maintain properties in a reasonably safe condition; if you are harmed as a result of an unsafe condition, you can hold the property owner liable for all economic and noneconomic damages you have suffered. Our lawyers will aid you in gathering evidence and building your case, proving damages and negotiating a settlement.

What to do After a Slip and Fall

If you have been in a slip and fall accident in Campbell River, the first thing that you should do is seek medical care for your injuries. Then, call our injury lawyers for a free consultation about your legal rights. In the meantime, we urge you to write down exactly what happened, take a picture of the hazard, report your injury to the property owner (personal property owner, store manager, etc.), and document your injuries and your interactions with anyone involved. We also encourage you to write down the names and contact information of any persons who witnessed the incident.

As you recover, we will start investigating your case and hiring experts who can determine exactly what happened and who should be liable. We handle the legal aspects of your case so you can focus on what is most important – your healing.
