Many individuals are under the impression, that slip and fall accidents only pose a threat to seniors and only during wintertime when there is a lot of ice and snow build-up in some areas. The reality is those slip and fall accidents can happen to anyone regardless of their age. Furthermore, they can happen anywhere and at any time of the year. This is especially true when a property is unkempt and a hazardous condition exists. So if you’ve recently sustained injuries in a slip and fall accident, Barapp Law Firm can help you file your claim.

Proving Liability in Your Case
In Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond, and in other cities throughout B.C. and other provinces in Canada, the key to winning a slip and fall case or any other personal injury case is proving liability. In other words, you have to prove that the other part is liable or responsible for your injuries as well as your pain and suffering if you want to win your case. In most slip and fall cases, the defendant is the owner of the property where the accident occurred. And the accident happened due to the negligence of the home or property owner and that is why you need to bring a claim against them.
Being the owner, the defendant is responsible for exhibiting reasonable care so that the property is maintained properly and kept safe for those who visit there. As the plaintiff (injury victim) the burden of proof is on your shoulders. You and your Barapp Law Firm team must prove that the defendant failed to exhibit reasonable care because of the following:
The employee or owner of the property caused the hazardous conditions that led to your accident and injuries
The employee or owner of the property knew that there were hazardous conditions on their property but neglected to correct or remove said conditions
The employee or owner of the property should have known, like any reasonable person would, that there was a hazardous condition on their property
It’s also important that you and your lawyer present your claim in a way that the insurer is not suspicious about you acting carelessly. In the case of slip and fall accidents, the more concrete evidence you can present, the greater the likelihood that the judge or jury will rule in your favor.
