Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers
Alberta is Canada’s westernmost prairie province and has a population of over 4 million residents, most of which live in Calgary and Edmonton, its two largest cities. It is known for its natural beauty and is oftentimes referred to as the “Energy Province” of Canada. Furthermore, Alberta boasts four very popular skiing resorts such as Banff, Fairview, Jasper, and Lake Louise.
Unfortunately, the province is also known for its sub-freezing temperatures that are possible for up to 8 months per year and the ice build-up that can happen after a warm day has caused a melt-and-freeze cycle to occur. Consequently, being cautious and preparing in advance of going outdoors is always recommended. Otherwise, you could sustain serious injuries in a slip and fall accident.
WHAT CAUSES THESE ACCIDENTS?
Although winter weather contributes the most to these types of mishaps throughout the province, it isn’t the sole cause of all slip and fall accidents. They can happen any time of the year no matter what season it is. Examples of situations that these accidents can be attributed to include:
Uneven indoor or outdoor surfaces
Freshly mopped mall and/or shop floors
Wet floors down produce aisles in grocery stores
Sidewalks and walkways that need to be cleared
Stairways that fail to meet building codes or are not maintained properly
Icy build-up on driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks due to improper drainage
When the owner of any premises fails to take care of their property and maintain it so that it is safe for visitors, these types of accidents will eventually cause someone serious harm. If this should happen, the BLAB Personal Injury Lawyer and legal team are only a phone call away.
THE NEED FOR EXPERIENCED LEGAL REPRESENTATION
No matter how helpful a family member or friends will try to be in these situations, they are not a personal injury lawyer. It will always be in your best interests to consult with a slip and fall accident lawyer if you sustain injuries at the hands of a negligent property owner, manager, or employee. Furthermore, discussing your accident and injuries with an injury lawyer will enable them to determine what your case is worth or the amount of damages you could sue for in a personal injury case.
If you or a loved one was seriously hurt in a slip and fall accident, in Fort McMurray, Fort Saskatchewan, or Lacombe don’t risk losing the compensation you’re entitled to for your injuries as well as your pain and suffering.
