Campbell River Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

Certain members of the Campbell River community are more likely to sustain serious injuries as the result of a slip and fall accident. Falling accidents are the leading cause of older Canadians’ injury-related hospitalizations and are a global public health concern for senior citizens.

That said, slip and fall accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at any time. Regardless of age, physical condition, or level of personal caution, the negligence of property owners and occupiers can lead to dangerous, hazardous conditions that could lead to injury-causing slips and falls on their premises.

The hazards that frequently lead to serious slip and fall accidents might sound innocent enough, but if not properly maintained or repaired by the property’s occupier, these commonplace features of commercial or residential premises could lead to severe, life-changing accidents. Maintenance hazards that commonly cause unexpected slip and fall accidents include:

  • Ice and snow
  • Recently mopped floors
  • Poorly maintained staircases
  • Broken or missing handrails
  • Debris or objects on the floor or ground
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Loose floorboards
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Loose carpeting
  • And more

If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to pursue a civil claim for damages against the negligent occupier of the premises where the slip and fall accident took place. The term “occupier” could refer to any person or entity who has physical control over a property or who has the responsibility for its condition and management. This definition applies to both commercial and residential properties.

In accordance with the British Columbia Occupiers Liability Act, an occupier has a duty to take reasonable care to ensure that people who enter their property are safe from harm. If an occupier fails to meet this duty of care, they may be considered negligent. If so, they might be held liable for any injuries that occur on their property.

In order to establish negligence, the injured party must prove that:

  • The occupier knew about the dangerous element on their premises (or should have known about it)
  • The occupier failed to sufficiently repair the maintenance hazard or provide adequate warning to guests about it
  • As a result of the occupier’s negligent actions, the accident victim was involved in an injury-causing slip and fall accident
  • Because of the injuries they sustained in the slip and fall, the accident victim incurred financial losses.
