Premises liability negligence laws allow B.C. residents to recover compensation based on the extent of the injuries they sustained while on another’s property. If you or a loved one was injured after an accident on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to:
- Treatment costs
- Lost income while recuperating
- Pain and suffering
In instances of severe slip and fall injury, such as spinal cord or brain injuries, you may be entitled to collect a substantial amount to cover the costs of present and future therapy and treatment.
