Chilliwack Trip and Fall Lawyer

Over 42,000 Canadians are injured in trip and fall accidents each year. Nearly two-thirds of all falls occur on the same level when there is an obstructed view, poor lighting, cluttered walkways, upturned carpeting, uncovered cables, open drawers, or uneven walking surfaces. Most of these accidents could have been prevented by a vigilant and mindful property owner.

British Columbia property owners are required, by law, to take care that, in all circumstances, a person will be “reasonably safe” using the premises. Landlords who do not maintain their properties can be held liable for the medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering of those injured on their premises. When you’re hurt in Chilliwack, our experienced trip and fall law firm can lend a helping hand to secure compensation that prevents bankruptcy and funds your full recovery.

Trip and Fall Injuries

Roughly a third of people who trip and fall will suffer moderate to severe injuries, including hip fractures, head trauma, spinal cord damage, or forearm fractures. Trips cause approximately 15% of workplace deaths and 20% of workplace injuries in North America. If you suffered a minor bruise, sprain, or strain that is likely to fully heal within a couple of weeks, you may not need to file a lawsuit or obtain the services of Chilliwack personal injury lawyers. Workers’ Compensation Insurance may cover the costs associated with your injury in full.

When To Hire A Lawyer For A Trip and Fall Accident

However, when your injury requires more than a couple of days off work, it’s worth getting a lawyer to make sure that your best interests are represented and the settlement money you receive is fair for both today AND tomorrow. We serve as your advocate at all times when dealing with insurance representatives, bill collectors, and defendants. You will definitely need the services of a trip and fall lawyer if your case involves:

  • A claim denial because it’s “too late” or “wasn’t work-related.”
  • A dispute of your permanent disability rating.
  • A preexisting condition that was aggravated by your recent injury.
  • Difficulty getting the medical treatment you need to be covered by insurance.
  • Inability to work in the same capacity as you worked before the accident.
