We now cover accidents and injuries 🤕

Foot and leg on patient with splint cast and crutches

May 21, 2021

Not every slip and fall leads to a multi-million dollar lawsuit. But often enough, people or companies are held responsible if their premises are unsafe. Restaurants, office buildings, even a neighbour's driveway — businesses and homeowners are legally required to ensure their location is safe.

Our latest content on accidents and injuries will give you a crash course on how the law in BC handles these situations. You'll learn your rights and how much compensation you might get, or on the flip side, to what extent you need to keep your place free from danger. 

These new pages complement our growing body of content on health law, which includes our comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of legal issues during the pandemic.

We are grateful to work on the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, whose Peoples continue to live on and care for these lands.
