Richmond Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

If a property owner/occupier fails to fulfill their legally mandated duty of care, slip and fall accidents on their premises can occur. And depending on the circumstances of these accidents, their outcomes can be severe, long-lasting, and expensive.

Slip and fall accidents can happen to anyone at any time. They can result in serious injuries that can have serious impacts on accident victims’ overall quality of life. This is especially true for members of vulnerable populations, such as older adults. Injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents can be particularly devastating for seniors, who are more likely to sustain serious injuries in a fall than younger accident victims. According to the Canadian Institute for Health Information, falls are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations among seniors in Canada. Sadly, more than half of older Canadians’ injury-related deaths are also the result of falling accidents.

According to the British Columbia Occupiers Liability Act, the owners and/or occupiers of commercial and residential properties owe a duty of care to the people engaging with their premises. They are legally required to take reasonable steps to keep their premises safe for others to visit. Failure to do so could be considered negligence.

Negligence on the part of an occupier can lead to an injury-causing slip and fall accident. For example, if a property owner fails to regularly inspect and maintain their property, they might fail to adequately address potentially dangerous hazards on their premises. Some examples of potential hazards on commercial and residential properties that frequently lead to slip and fall accidents in Prince George include:

  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Uneven or broken flooring
  • Poor lighting
  • Loose or missing handrails
  • Debris or clutter on floors or stairs
  • Snow or ice on walkways
  • And more

Negligent property owners/occupiers who fail to uphold their duties of care to others should be held responsible for injury-causing accidents that occur on their premises as a result of their wrongful conduct. As such, if you have been injured in a slip and fall accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to pursue a civil claim for damages.
