Slip & Fall
In British Columbia, the Occupiers Liability Act imposes a duty on anyone that has possession of or control over buildings and structures to ensure that people will be reasonably safe using the premises.
What does this mean? It means that if you are in a store and are injured as a result of the negligence of the people in control of the condition of the store, you have a claim for your injuries, including a sum for pain and suffering, any wage loss as a result of your injuries, a claim for the cost of medical care, and your expenses as a result of being injured.
If you have been injured on someone’s premises, please contact one of our experienced lawyers at Mair Jensen Blair to ensure your claim is properly documented and advanced by skilled litigators to ensure you receive fair compensation, whether through a trial or settlement.
