Ontario’s Occupiers’ Liability laws ensure that persons who own and/or maintain a property do what is reasonably necessary to keep you safe. If you were injured as a result of a slip and fall due to uncleared snow or ice, poor lighting, spilled substances, or any other hazard, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering and financial losses.
Slip and falls occur in any and all facilities that people use, including parking lots, office buildings, shopping centres, private homes, government property, and construction sites. The injuries can be quite severe and can result in lost income, medical and treatment expenses and many other out-of-pocket costs in addition to pain and suffering. You are entitled to be compensated for all of those losses if your injury was caused by someone who failed to properly build or maintain their property.
Slip and fall accident cases are often complicated by the circumstances of the injury and require the involvement of property owners, occupiers, property management companies and other companies responsible for snow removal and/or landscaping, etc. They are very fact-driven and we have the expertise needed to ensure that all negligent parties are held responsible for your injuries.
