Injured this Winter?

(1 votes, average: 5.00 out of 5) Loading... We’re well into February yet the snow still keeps coming. There hasn’t been this much snow, sleet, and ice in years so it’s understandable that people are caught unprepared. Whether it’s shoveling driveways and sidewalks or clearing and marking slippery floors, property owners are responsible for the safety of the public. If you’ve suffered a personal injury this winter or know someone who has, you need a compassionate and knowledgeable Fraser Valley personal injury lawyer. Don’t assume that you’re entitled to monetary compensation for your injury. A professional opinion must take into account the conditions and determine whether it was hazardous and harmful to you due to the negligence of the building or property owner. You need a qualified lawyer to explain your rights and what you may or may not be entitle to. An injury sustained from a slip or fall does not automatically entitle you to compensation. The burden is on you to show that the property manager or owner failed to effectively ensure a safe property. For example, were the sidewalks shoveled in timely manner or was the entrance of the building clearly marked as a slipping hazard as water and ice were dragged into the property? There are many questions that ultimately need to be asked and that comes with the experienced team of Routley & Company, Fraser Valley’s personal injury lawyer choice. For more information on personal injury law or to schedule an appointment, contact us today. Know your rights and what you’re entitled to. We care for you and your...

Sleet. Snow. Ice. Winter brings a lot of things including injury

Well, the weather outside is frightful and personal safety would be so delightful. While this time of year is filled with holiday cheer, it’s also filled with sleet, ice, and snow. We were just hit with our first snow storm. How was it commuting? How was it Christmas shopping? How was it just walking down the sidewalks and parking lots? Personal injury can happen at any moment so it’s important to take extra precautions this time of year. Make sure that you and your children have proper footwear to keep warm and give you grip on slippery floors and streets. You should also always be mindful of your surroundings. Fallen debris and poor visibility can get you in a lot of trouble. You may be rushing to find the perfect gift but the holiday hustle and bustle can bring leaves, melted slush, and water indoors. If you have fallen and hurt yourself, you need to call a Fraser Valley personal injury lawyer that is sympathetic to your case and has your wellbeing in mind. It’s sad to say but some business and property owners can be negligent when it comes to creating a safe environment for patrons and the general public this time of year. While it’s understandable that people can get caught off guard when a sudden snowfall hits, ice, sleet, and wet floors should be addressed in a timely manner. It’s important to know your rights if you have fallen while shopping or walking on the street outside. Routley & Company is Fraser Valley’s personal injury lawyer. Contact Routley & Company today for more information about what you’re entitled to...
