Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents that occur on property owned by someone other than the injured victim are often referred to as an Occupier’s Liability Accidents. In Ontario, an occupier of premises owes a duty to take such care as in all the circumstances of the case is reasonable to see that persons entering on the premises are reasonably safe while on the premises. Occupier’s liability accidents can include, but are not limited to slip and fall accidents caused by:

  • snow and ice
  • improperly constructed stair cases
  • wet floors
  • uneven floors
  • worn carpeting
  • poor lighting
  • worn or broken staircases
  • worn or broken sidewalks or steps

Prompt legal advice and attention to these claims is essential. Often the evidence to establish negligence on the owner of the property will not be available indefinitely. Also, in certain circumstances, the injured victim is required to give notice of their claim to the property owner within days of the incident occurring or else the claim could be statute barred forever.
If you or someone you know is a victim of a slip and fall or trip and fall, please contact us immediately for a free legal consultation.
