Kelowna Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

No one expects to be injured while running errands, shopping in the supermarket, walking through a parking lot, visiting a friend, or engaging in other regular, everyday activities. Unfortunately, because of the negligence of other people– namely, the owners and/or occupiers of commercial and residential properties– unsuspecting Kelowna residents can sustain serious, even life-threatening injuries as the result of a slip and fall accident on someone else’s premises.

According to the World Health Organization, falls account for one of the leading global causes of unintentional injury-related deaths, second only to motor vehicle accidents. And while anyone, regardless of age or physical condition, can be injured in a fall, older adults face both the greatest risks of being involved in a slip and fall and the greatest risks of being severely or fatally injured as a result.

For Canadians aged 65 or older, falls are the leading cause of both injury-related hospitalizations and injury-related deaths. Because of a property owner/occupier’s failure to uphold the duty of care they are legally required to provide, innocent people can be severely and permanently injured, or even lose their lives.

In Kelowna, slip and fall accidents can cause numerous types of injuries that range in severity from mild to catastrophic. These injuries can include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Bruises and cuts
  • Bone fractures
  • Broken hips
  • Ankle and wrist fractures
  • Knee injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • And more

The owners and/or occupiers of commercial and residential properties are required by law to take reasonable measures to keep their premises safe. Their legal obligations are outlined in the province’s Occupiers Liability Act, a piece of legislation created in an attempt to reduce the public’s risk of injuries and/or fatalities when visiting properties owned and/or occupied by other parties or entities. If a property owner/occupier fails to fulfill their legal responsibilities, they could be considered negligent.

A property owner/occupier’s negligence could lead to an injury-causing slip and fall accident in a number of ways. Negligence occurs when someone fails to take reasonable care to prevent harm to others. In the context of slip and fall accidents, this could mean failing to:

  • Repair or remove hazards on the property
  • Thoroughly remove and salt ice and snow
  • Provide clear warnings about potential harmful hazards on-site
  • Keep the property in a safe condition
  • Properly maintain walkways, stairs, and other areas where people walk
  • Regularly inspect the property for potentially dangerous hazards
  • And more
