Slip and fall injuries are a common occurrence in Ottawa and across Eastern Ontario, particularly during the winter season. Many victims suffer serious, life-altering injuries that can result in severe levels of impairment.
In Ontario, the obligations of a property owner are governed by Occupiers’ Liability law. This law requires owners and occupiers of property to take care that people entering on their property are reasonably safe.
Wet floors, improper warning signage, failing to salt icy sidewalks and poorly light stairwells are some of the few examples of negligence that can result in serious injury.
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important to contact an experienced slip and fall lawyer to determine whether you are entitled to damages for the negligence of a property or business owner.
Your slip and fall lawyer will help build your case, gathering the evidence and information which is needed to prove that the owner or occupier of the property failed to comply with their responsibilities. He or she will also work to prove the extent of your injuries and how these injuries have caused damages such as income loss, loss of ability to complete activities of daily life and pain and suffering.
