Motor Vehicle Accidents
All motorists are required by law to drive responsibly and to share the road safely with others. Failure to adhere to these requirements has the potential to cause accidents that can result in serious injuries to others. When someone causes an injury in a motor vehicle accident, the injured victim has a right to compensation for medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and other losses suffered by commencing legal proceedings against the driver at fault for the accident.
Our team of experienced lawyers represent individuals who have suffered injuries from vehicle accidents including accidents involving cars, motorcycles, trucks, boats, All Terrain Vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians in Truro, Nova Scotia.
Slip and Fall Injuries
A slip and fall accident can result in long term injuries and can cause hardship for those who have been injured through no fault of their own. The impact of a slip and fall can often go beyond physical injuries. An injured individual may be absent from their employment or may have difficulty performing their required duties at work. The law in Nova Scotia requires that a property owner, or occupier, ensure their property is safe. A slip in an icy parking lot, for example, can result in serious injuries. A property owner or occupier must take steps to ensure their property is free of hazards that could create a dangerous environment. You are entitled to commence a lawsuit if the accident was a result of the negligence of the owner or occupier who was responsible for the property.
Examples of successful claims our firm has brought forward include, but are not limited to:
- Water spills
- Stairs that are not up to the Building Code
- Ice and snow on sidewalks
- A deck collapse
- Poor lighting
Legal claims can occur when an individual or company, through their negligence, creates a hazardous environment which leads to a personal injury. An experienced slip and fall lawyer at Wagners can advise you about your rights. It is also important to document the accident and your injuries, including seeking medical attention from a qualified medical professional.
