Slip & Fall
Most slip & fall accidents could have been prevented
Despite being an embarrassment, slips and falls or trip and falls can result in serious injuries that can impact your life and those closest to you. If you slipped, fell, or tripped on someone else’s property because of their negligence, there’s a good chance that you can recover damages.
A slip and fall case in Ontario is a commonly used term to mean a slip and fall insurance claim in law brought by an Ontario slip and fall lawyer on behalf of an individual who has injured themselves from a slip, trip, or fall. It is a claim that the property owner or someone the owner hired was negligent in allowing a dangerous condition to exist that caused the slip or trip to occur in the first place.
Due to the unpredictable weather patterns we face over the fall and winter months, slip and falls in Ontario cities are common. However, many people would suggest that “we live in Canada” and should expect as citizens to have weather which could cause us to slip and fall on black ice or unexpected snow falls. The truth of the matter is that property owners in the 21st century are much more equipped with weather prediction allowing them to prepare for changing weather patterns and arming themselves with protective measures to help avoid slip and falls on their properties in Ontario.
Besides ice and snow, there are many other reasons why slip and falls occur every day in the Greater Toronto Area. For example:
- Uneven pavement
- Uneven sidewalks
- Poorly designed staircases
- Stairs without railings (bannisters)
- Poor lighting conditions in stairwells
- And many other situations.
