We’re one of BC’s largest groups of Personal Injury lawyers for a reason – we care deeply about the injured clients we represent. Hammerberg’s slip and fall injury lawyers have over 30 years of experience representing clients who have been injured in slip and fall accidents as a result of someone else’s negligence.
Slips and falls can cause injuries ranging from mild to catastrophic, depending on the circumstances. Sometimes people blame themselves, particularly the elderly who often assume their own frailty made them susceptible – others presume weather was the cause. However, property owners and occupiers have responsibilities. If someone is injured on their premises and they were at fault, they should be held accountable.
Both home owners and owners of business premises owe a duty of care to their visitors, customers and others and should carry liability insurance that can be called upon if injuries are sustained. Often, those responsible for a business premises will insist that a system of maintenance and inspection was in place as required by the law and that they should not be held liable. Our team of experts will establish if this was the case or not. We employ civil, mechanical, or biomechanical engineers to analyze your accident. Investigators will search for patterns of negligence and other key details. Together with these experts, Hammerberg’s legal team will build a strong case to obtain the maximum compensation possible for you.
We are trial lawyers and in our experience, your interests are best served if we prepare your case as if it were going to court. This approach enables us to achieve the best possible results in either settlement discussions, or at trial.
