Victoria Trip and Fall Lawyer

Slip and fall injuries can occur anywhere. An unassuming trip to the store or the bank can quickly go wrong if you trip and fall. Some falls are unavoidable, or due to our own clumsiness. However, many of these trip and fall injuries result from a hazard on another person’s property. If you sustained an injury due to a property owner’s negligence, a Victoria trip and fall lawyer might be able to help.

At the Preszler Injury Lawyers, we are proud to fight for the legal rights of injured Victoria residents. To discuss your legal options with a trip and fall law firm, contact us right away.

The Risk of a fall

Some Victoria residents face a greater risk of a fall injury than others. According to a study by the Public Health Agency of Canada, Canadians aged 65 and over are at the greatest risk for a fall injury. The study also identified fractures as the most common injury in a fall. While bone breaks make up 37 percent of all fall injuries, 16 percent of these injuries relate to shoulder or arm injuries. Tendon, ligament, or joint damage can be debilitating and challenging to treat.

Additionally, research by the Canadian government catalogues the factors that can cause a senior to fall. These factors include:

  • Illness
  • Poor eyesight
  • Physical disabilities
  • Muscle weakness
  • Cognitive issues
  • Poor diet
  • Side effects of medication

Regardless of the age of an injury victim, they have the right to pursue compensation from a negligent property owner. With the help of a trip and fall lawyer, an injury victim might be able to recover that compensation.

Types of Injuries in a fall

Young or old, the victim of a trip and fall injury could face severe injuries. A fall can be especially devastating when it occurs from height. While an injury victim might recover from most injuries, fall that results in damage to the head or neck could be life-threatening. Common injuries in a trip and fall accident include:

  • Broken bones
  • Contusions
  • Bruising
  • Internal bleeding
  • Damages ligaments and tendons
  • Burns
  • Head injuries, including concussions
  • Neck injuries, including whiplash
  • Back injuries

No fee unless we collect

Your inability to pay up-front legal fees should never prevent you from recovering monetary damages from the property owner that injured you. When you engage a trip and fall lawyer from the Preszler Injury Lawyers, you do so knowing you will only pay a fee if we are successful in your case. Our firm operates on a contingency basis, which means we only collect a fee as a percentage of the money we recover on your behalf. If you receive nothing, you will not owe us any fee whatsoever.
