In British Columbia, you can generally claim damages for a slip and fall injury if the accident occurred because the owner or occupier failed to maintain a reasonably safe premises for visitors.  An occupier can be a company, a city, an individual, or another entity.

If your accident was caused by a hazardous condition that could have been corrected, or at least warned about, you could be entitled to significant compensation to account for your lost income, pain and suffering, out-of-pocket expenses, and reduced earning potential in the case of disability. In some slip and fall claims, the plaintiff can even sue for loss of enjoyment of life.

Important tips following a slip and fall accident

Whether you tripped over a loose cable at the hardware store or slipped on a shop’s icy stoop, the occupier or property owner could be responsible for your injuries. To prove liability, you must show that the grounds were not kept in a reasonably safe condition.

Following any kind of slip and fall injury, try to:

  • Report the accident to the property owner/occupier and authorities
  • Take photos and video of where you fell and surrounding details
  • Get the names and contact information of eyewitnesses
  • Seek medical attention and document your injuries
  • Keep the shoes you were wearing at the time of the accident
  • Contact an experienced slip and fall lawyer at Preszler Injury Lawyers
