Accidents can occur anywhere; however, when an accident occurs on someone else’s property due to inadequate maintenance or repairs, you may be able to recover compensatory damages through a premises liability claim. Slipping on a wet surface at a grocery store, falling due to a broken banister in someone’s home, or a child being injured in a swimming pool are a few examples of premises liability accidents. Working with an experienced premises liability lawyer may help you obtain the maximum compensation you are owed for medical expenses, lost wages, or other losses resulting from your personal injury.

How to Prove Negligence in a Vancouver Premises Liability Claim

Proving negligence in a Vancouver premises liability claim may be challenging without the help of an experienced Rizk Law lawyer. In order to successfully determine negligence, you must prove the following conditions:

  • There was an unreasonable hazardous condition or defective risk on the property
  • The owner was aware or should have been cognizant of the risk on their property
  • The property owner failed to take any action to take reasonable care of the property or fix the necessary conditions to reduce the risk
  • You were injured and sustained damages due to the risk. Without the hazardous condition or defect, you would have avoided injury on their property

As a victim of a premises liability accident, you hold the burden of proof to demonstrate these conditions with evidence to substantiate your claim. The Vancouver premises liability lawyers at Rizk Law are well-versed in handling the most complex cases and are ready to guide you through the legal process.

Through an extensive investigation, we may find valuable evidence to prove negligence and hold property owners accountable. We will examine video surveillance footage, incident reports, witness testimony, and other necessary evidence to illustrate the lack of duty of care of the property owner and how that led to your suffering.

Fault in a Vancouver Premises Liability Claim

There are numerous parties that may be liable for the injuries and other losses sustained on their property, including:

Property Owners

The property owner is typically responsible for the property’s conditions, and if neglect to make repairs or upkeep, they may be accountable for injuries and other resulting damages of an accident.


Residential and commercial properties may be leased to individuals or businesses. If you are harmed due to a hazardous environment or defect, the tenant may be responsible for damages or, in addition to the property owner.

Maintenance and Repair Providers

Repairs and maintenance services are often contracted to third parties by property owners and tenants. If you were injured due to improper maintenance or repairs, the third-party contractor may be responsible for injuries incurred on the property.

Determining the one or many parties responsible for the premises liability accident may be challenging. To ensure that you navigate the legal process properly and obtain the necessary evidence to determine fault, retain the guidance of the experienced Rizk Law premises liability lawyers.
