Slip/Trip and Fall Accidents
Slip/trip and falls can occur as a result of snow/ice accumulation, broken pavement, wet floor, loose carpet, a stair or step that is not to code, poorly maintained premises, or other unstable or uneven surfaces. Injuries from these types of accidents can range from a bruised knee to serious brain injuries or death.
The law in Ontario states that it is the responsibility of the store, business, or private property owner to ensure the safety of everyone who enters their premises. If the property owner or manager neglected the property and failed to protect you against potential accidents, you may be entitled to compensation.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are a victim of an injury on city or government of Ontario property, is it important that you provide sufficient written notice of your injury within 10 days of the incident. Adhering to the 10-day notice period requirement is vital to moving forward with your legal claim.
