Everyday hazards around a private home can cause visitors to have a serious fall. While it may be difficult to consider taking legal action against a personal friend or social acquaintance, you may have severe injuries that require compensation, for things like medical expenses, to help you recover.
At Michael Golden Law Corporation in Vancouver, we can advise on your slip-and-fall injuries. Getting in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible can help ensure you are legally protected, even if you are not sure of the steps you want to take as a result of the accident.

Injury Claims Resulting From Hazards
If you help a friend move, attend a social gathering or are visiting for an extended period of time, your hosts should take due care to keep you safe on their property. If this care is not taken, a serious injury could result from such hazards as:
- Faulty staircases
- Loose or improperly attached railings
- Improperly secured wall hangings
- Poorly maintained carpets, floors or outside surfaces such as sidewalks, walkways or lawns
Michael and the rest of our experienced legal team can provide advice and guidance, and begin to work quickly to gather evidence and witness reports to help build your legal claim for premises liability. Our entire firm will help you file suit in potential cases of liability, with the goal of helping you recover the financial support you require to move forward.
We also handle every aspect of the legal process so you can limit the contact you have with the friend or acquaintance about this matter and preserve that relationship.
