Slip-and-fall Injuries

Standing Up For Your Rights To Recovery

Sometimes when you fall it is not easy to get back up. Whether it is on a city sidewalk, in a retail store, at a recreation centre, or on the property of a neighbour, when you trip or slip on an unexpected hazard and are badly hurt, you may need support to get better. Under the Occupiers' Liability Act in Nova Scotia, people and institutions have a responsibility to make sure the areas they control are reasonably safe. If they fail to do this and it causes you to suffer an injury, you can take legal action.

MacGillivray Injury and Insurance Law has been representing Nova Scotia slip-and-fall accident victims since 1994. When you require an advocate to enforce your rights during a slip-and-fall injury claim, you can trust us to meet your needs.

Severe Consequences Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents

A bad fall can cause broken bones, orthopaedic injuries and head injuries such as concussions. These injuries may eventually heal, but you may never be physically the same. In addition, you may need extended periods of time away from work to attend medical appointments and rehabilitation sessions. If your injury prevents you from working completely, you may need access to long-term disability benefits to maintain your financial stability while you focus on recovery.

As lawyers dedicated to injured people, we know the questions to ask about your slip-and-fall injury claim. We know what medical specialists to contact to make sure your injury is properly assessed. When we become your lawyers, we get right to work analyzing the accident scene and gathering witness statements to build a strong case for you. Our fees are on contingency, which means we do not take a fee unless and until we secure compensation for you.
