Property owners are responsible for keeping their properties safe and for warning occupants, visitors and patrons of any potential harm. Something as simple as not salting an icy driveway, not fixing cracked pavement, or leaving tools, or cords on stairs or pathways can result in a devastating injury.
If you were injured in a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident that was caused by the negligence of a property owner or occupier, you may be able to pursue legal action. Our team helps injured people throughout Eastern Ontario, and we’re here to help you, too.
Often, a slip-and-fall injury resolves itself quickly. Unfortunately, we don’t always know which injuries will resolve and which may take a long time to heal and turn out to be much more serious than initially thought.
With these accidents, it’s crucial to get legal advice immediately. Slip-and-fall accidents are subject to strict limitations regarding when you can claim damages. In some jurisdictions, particularly for accidents that happen on public property, the limitation may be as short as 10 days.
If you have been in an accident, contact us. We’ll find out who is responsible and preserve evidence, and ensure that you don’t miss your chance to get compensation.
