Slip and Fall Claims
While walking on a property, walkway or sidewalk, sudden slip and fall accidents may occur due to unforeseen hazards and can result in life altering injuries and detrimental financial setbacks.
Under the Occupiers’ Liability Act, the occupier of a property (property owners, tenants and managers) in Ontario are required by law to keep people reasonably safe while on the premises, and can be liable for injuries that occur if steps are not taken to keep visitors safe. Such conditions can include: ice and snow that has not been cleared, poor lighting, slippery surfaces, absence of handrails/assistive devices and dangerous stairways.
If you are suffering from an injury due to unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation. Our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience investigating these types of incidents, producing successful claims against property occupier’s for their negligence, and ensuring injured clients receive reparation for their losses.
