New Westminster Slip and Fall Lawyer

Slip and fall accidents are a common cause of significant injuries, including concussions, hip fractures, and head trauma. While some people escape with a few bruises, others will face a long recovery accompanied by a mounting pile of medical bills.

In New Westminster, property owners and occupiers are tasked with keeping their grounds reasonably safe for visitors, guests, and patrons. It is their duty to take reasonable steps to keep people safe from unnecessary injury.

Icy walkways, uneven tiles, polished and wet floors can all pose serious risks for a slip, trip or fall. Liability issues may also relate to poorly lit areas, building code violations and even failing to maintain a parking lot that is safe.

When someone else’s negligence or inaction causes you to suffer injury, you have rights. Our skilled lawyers are here to provide honest, compassionate guidance with a view toward maximizing your settlement or monetary award.

Slip and fall claims are rarely cut and dry. Establishing liability and culpable parties requires the savvy and resources of an experienced slip and fall law firm.

Our New Westminster slip and fall lawyers remain dedicated to protecting the rights of accident victims and fighting for fair compensation.

Important steps to take after a slip and fall

Unreasonably dangerous conditions can appear when you least expect them: at a friend’s apartment building, at your favourite bar, or the sidewalk in front of your workplace.

Knowing what to do after a slip and fall accident can make a major difference in the outcome of your claim.

  • Report your accident to the manager, owner or occupier of the building or premises. Ask for a written report.
  • Get medical treatment, even if your injuries seem to be minor. Medical records must document the type and severity of your injuries.
  • Document the location, time and details of the accident.
  • Collect the names and contact information of any people who witnessed your fall.
  • Do not provide statements to insurance providers until you have obtained legal advice.
  • Maintain a file that includes all of your medical expenses and out-of-pocket costs relating to your injury.
  • Contact a reputable law firm with a proven record of handling slip and fall claims.

No matter where you live in New Westminster, Preszler Law can make the legal process after a serious injury much easier. In your time of need, you can count on a slip and fall lawyer to fight for the justice you and your loved ones deserve.
