West Kelowna Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

Slip and fall accidents are common occurrences in West Kelowna. Unfortunately, they often lead to serious injuries.

Depending on a number of factors, including the physical conditions of the accident scene and the accident victim’s age and medical history, slips and falls can result in a wide range of injuries of varying degrees of severity. Injuries often sustained in West Kelowna slip and fall accidents include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Bruises and abrasions
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • And more

Older adults are most likely to sustain serious injuries in slip and fall accidents.Indeed, 85% of older Canadians’ injury-related hospitalizations are the result of a fall. This statistic is not unique to our country. According to the World Health Organization, falls present a global risk to senior citizens across the world.

Despite the fact that older Canadians are the most likely to be seriously injured as the result of a slip and fall, anyone can be involved in accidents on commercial or residential properties that have not been sufficiently maintained by their occupiers.

The British Columbia Occupiers Liability Act defines an occupier as anyone who controls access to a commercial or residential property and/or is responsible for ensuring its safety for others. This includes landlords, tenants, property managers, and business owners.

In accordance with this legislation, occupiers owe a duty of care to people visiting their premises. They must take proactive measures to ensure that their premises are safe for visitors, and to take reasonable steps to prevent harm to others.

Property owners and occupiers can be considered negligent if they fail to take reasonable steps to address slip and fall hazards on their property. Examples of potential hazards on commercial and residential properties that might lead to an injury-causing slip and fall accident include:

  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Uneven or cracked pavement
  • Loose or torn carpeting
  • Poor lighting
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Unsecured rugs or mats
  • Improperly cleared ice or snow
  • And more
