Slip and Fall Lawyer in Vancouver
Slip and Falls are common types of personal injury accidents that occur as a result of flooring or ground surface that is Slippery, Icy, Uneven or Cracked.
Slip and Fall Claims often occur on the premises of Shopping Stores, Restaurants, Residential Buildings, and Municipal Grounds.
Fault is normally hotly contested, but can be proven, if it is shown that:
- The hazard that caused the slip and fall was or should have been known
- The maintenance routine designed to prevent or remove such a hazard was defective
It is vital to secure witness names and telephone numbers to prove both that the slip and fall occurred and that there was a hazard that caused it.
Frequently engineers or maintenance experts are required to establish that maintenance practices of the Defendant were defective.
