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, 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 slip-and-fall accident victims across Atlantic Canada since 1994. When you require an advocate to fight for 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, orthopedic injuries and head injuries such as concussions. These injuries may eventually heal, but you may never be the same physically. 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 helping 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 that you do not pay anything until we secure compensation for you.
We represent people across Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. We have offices in Halifax, St. John’s, and New Glasgow, and will schedule phone intakes and make house calls to clients who can’t travel. The consultation is free, so contact us today to meet with one of our lawyers and learn more about your options.
