For years, owners of property in the downtown core of Vancouver and other areas of British Columbia have been required to keep their walkways free of ice and snow. After filing over 700 warnings last year, city engineers in Vancouver are proposing that all property managers be required to remove snow and ice from pedestrian areas. The reason for this is simple: ice and snow commonly result in slip and fall accidents which, in turn, can lead to expensive medical expenses and untold suffering for victims.
Even without tougher regulations, it is the duty of property owners and managers to keep their premises clear of dangers. When you become injured due to the negligence of a property owner, you have a right to seek compensation with a premises liability lawsuit. The Surrey personal injury attorneys at Stephens & Holman are prepared to take your case, hold negligent property owners responsible, and fight to ensure you receive the maximum compensation you are due.
