The Slip and Fall Lawyers Toronto Trusts
People falling – known in legal parlance as a trip and fall or slip and fall accident – causes more emergency room visits across Canada than virtually any other type of accident. Falls, especially from heights or involving the elderly, can cause serious and even permanent injuries.
Our team has represented victims in slip and fall accidents for more than 50 years. Our deep experience and reputation for success makes us your best chance at securing fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries.
Nobody is to blame for most slip and fall injuries, but in cases where a person is injured due to the negligence or error of another, the injury victim deserves justice in the form of financial compensation. A Toronto slip and fall accident lawyer can help you understand your rights and make informed decisions about pursuing a personal injury claim.
Occupiers’ Liability Act
Under Ontario law, property occupiers – the person that has control over the property through ownership or lease – are responsible for the safety of other people on the premises. The occupier is required to take reasonable precautions to ensure visitors or customers do not come to harm.
The province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act applies to private, public, and commercial properties. If you sustain a slip and fall injury due to an occupiers’ error or negligence, you may have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim against them. The claim may be for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, and a variety of other damages.
That We Handle
Age is an important factor in slip and fall injury cases. The same accident that causes minor scrapes and a bruised ego for young people can be life-threatening for a senior citizen. Many of the claims that our Toronto accident lawyers handle involve seriously injured seniors.
Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
A slip and fall accident can occur anytime and anywhere, from your quiet suburban sidewalks to busy downtown malls. While not every slip and fall is grounds for a personal injury claim, those that were caused by the error or omission of a property owner or occupier could result in compensation. This includes injuries that occurred on public property.
