Penticton Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

Slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries that may require medical treatment, rehabilitation, and time away from work. These unexpected accidents can happen on commercial or residential properties, during any season of the year, and to any member of the local community, regardless of their age or physical condition.

That said, slips and falls can be particularly dangerous for older members of the population. For Canadians over the age of 65, falls are the leading cause of both injury-related hospitalizations and injury-related deaths. Seniors who are injured in slip and fall accidents may require lengthy periods of hospitalization, intense physical rehabilitation regimens, surgeries, and dramatic overhauls to the quality of life to which they had been accustomed.

No matter the accident victim’s age, though, slips and falls could lead to extended periods of physical pain and discomfort, emotional and psychological trauma, and financial instability. However, by working with our Penticton slip and fall accident lawyers, people who have been injured on property owned and/or occupied by someone else may be able to recover compensation for their damages.

The province’s Occupiers Liability Act defines an “occupier” as a person who has control over a commercial or residential property. Anyone who is responsible for maintaining the property or who controls access to the premises might fall under this definition of an “occupier.”

Property owners/occupiers have a legal duty to ensure that their property is reasonably safe for people who enter it. If they fail to take reasonable care to prevent harm to others, they might be considered negligent. In the context of slip and fall accidents, negligence can include:

  • Failing to remove hazards such as snow, ice, or spilled liquids in a timely manner.
  • Failing to properly maintain the property (e.g., repairing broken stairs, fixing loose handrails, or paving over potholes in the parking lot).
  • Failing to properly light areas where people walk.
  • Failing to provide guests with warnings about potentially dangerous hazards.
  • Failing to conduct routine inspections of the property and its features.
  • And more

Because of a property owner/occupier’s negligence, people who were simply going about their business could all of a sudden find themselves struggling with physical pain, emotional distress, and exorbitant financial obligations. No one ever expects to be seriously injured in a slip and fall, and few people are financially prepared for the costs associated with severe injuries.

However, if you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.
