Slip & Fall

Slip and fall injuries are unexpected but can be devastating.  In fact, falls are the leading cause of serious injury in Canada and many of those falls are preventable.

Injuries can result from slipping and falling on wet, icy, slick or debris strewn surfaces.  They may happen on a sidewalk, roadway, in someone’s home or yard, or in a commercial property such as a store, restaurant or business.

As embarrassing as a slip or fall may be, embarrassment may actually be the least of people’s worries after such an incident.  Injuries resulting from slip and falls can be devastating and may lead to a life of chronic pain.

Commercial and residential property owners and operators have a legal duty to keep their property reasonably safe and free of foreseeable danger for those people who are using their premises.  This may include wiping up a spill on the floor, removing debris from the floor, shoveling snow or fixing a broken handrail or shelf.

If you have been injured from a slip or a trip caused by someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you may be entitled for compensation for your injuries including compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, costs of future care and out of pocket expenses.
