Slip and fall liability in Whistler

Suffering an injury on another person’s property is not enough to warrant financial compensation on its own. There are several criteria that must be met before you will be able to recover damages from the responsible party.

In a slip and fall case, you must establish that your fall was due to a dangerous condition on the property of another person and that they knew, or should have known of its existence. You must also show that the fall was directly caused by the dangerous condition in question and that you suffered injuries as a result.

While many fall accidents resolve before a lawsuit is filed, in many cases a stubborn insurance company will refuse to pay you the true value of their claim. Their business model depends in part on avoiding responsibility for the debts incurred by their insured.  You may benefit from hiring a slip and fall lawyer with experience negotiating settlements with these large corporations.

Compensation available in a slip and fall case

You can lose a lot as a result of a single slip and fall injury. Medical bills and other expenses can eat into your finances. Those troubles are only compounded if you are unable to work while you are hurt. Your personal injury lawyer can review the circumstances surrounding your fall and identify any damages you might seek compensation for. Some of the damages available in a slip and fall accident include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Transportation costs
  • Decreased future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Inability to perform housekeeping duties

Time limit to file a slip and fall lawsuit

There are time limits for every type of lawsuit in British Columbia. For personal injury claims like a slip and fall accident, you generally have two years from the date of the fall to file suit. This period may be significantly shorter if the defendant you intend to sue is a government entity. If you fail to file a lawsuit on time, you risk having the court dismiss your case permanently. An experienced slip and fall lawyer may be able to help protect your legal rights by ensuring your lawsuit complies with all court deadlines.
