Slip And Fall
Slip and fall injuries are common among Ontarians, especially during the frost-and-thaw months. “Slip and fall” and “trip and fall” are generic terms used to described injuries sustained while falling as a result of hazardous conditions that were neglected by the property owner, business proprietor, or municipality.
For over 40 years, we have offered compassionate and comprehensive support for victims of slip and fall accidents in the form of legal and insurance advocacy, medical assistance, and help with everyday tasks. Our team has secured landmark verdicts and settlements in Canada, and can help you ensure your physical, financial, and emotional recovery anywhere in Ontario.
Examples of conduct for which a property owner, business proprietor, or municipality may be held accountable for your slip and fall injury include:
- Failing to provide adequate warnings that indoor flooring is being polish, waxed, or washed
- Failing to properly close off a wet indoor area
- Cleaning indoor floor space in a negligent manner, such as mopping during periods of high foot traffic
- Failing to clean up spilled liquid, food, or other slippery substances, and neglected to post warning signs
- Failing to maintain the condition of flooring or carpets, leaving hazards like loose tiles, torn carpeting, and splintering hardwood
- Failing to maintain stairways, exposing users to hazards like faulty handrails or worn steps
- Failing to provide adequate lighting in hazardous conditions
- Failing to salt or sand slippery stairs, sidewalks, or other walking surfaces
