Ajax Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Without warning, a regular activity can turn into a years-long ordeal for Ajax residents going about their daily business. Visiting a business or residential building, walking down a grocery store aisle, descending a flight of stairs, or engaging in any type of normal activity on someone else’s property can be disastrous for unsuspecting accident victims impacted by someone else’s negligence. 

Slip and fall accidents may sound like minor events. Unfortunately, in Ajax, they frequently result in severe injuries. Depending on a number of factors, including the physical conditions of the accident scene as well as the victim’s age, slips and falls can have tremendous, long-lasting, and even fatal consequences.

This is especially true for senior citizens, who account for the majority of slip and fall accident victims requiring hospitalization. According to recent data, four out of five seniors requiring hospitalization were admitted because of injuries they sustained in a fall. 

Seniors have a higher likelihood of being involved in a slip and fall accident. They also have a higher chance of sustaining serious injuries as the result of one. Injuries that are commonly sustained in Ajax slip and fall accidents include:

In addition to causing significant physical pain, psychological distress, and disruption to one’s life, depending on the age and medical condition of the accident victim, some injuries sustained in a slip and fall could even lead to their premature demise. Seniors who sustain hip fractures, for example, may require surgery. Hip replacement surgery is complicated and invasive. Even when successfully completed, those who have undergone the surgery often suffer reduced mobility, often requiring the use of an ambulatory assistive device. But hip replacement surgery can lead to major complications. These complications often have fatal consequences. Indeed, according to reports from the Canadian Institute for Health Information, 30% of seniors who receive a hip replacement die within one year following their surgery.

Regardless of the injured victim’s age, slip and fall accidents can have profoundly devastating consequences. Our Ajax slip and fall accident lawyers believe that no one should be forced to shoulder the physical, psychological, and financial burdens associated with surviving an injurious accident. 

In accordance with the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the owners/occupiers of both commercial and residential properties owe a duty of care to the people visiting their premises. That means they must regularly inspect the area in and around the property for potential hazards and deal with them appropriately in a timely fashion. If a property owner/occupier’s failure to properly address a potentially dangerous maintenance hazard on their premises and an injury-causing accident occurs as a result, the negligent property occupier may be liable for damages incurred by the injured accident victim. 

Therefore, if you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation. To discuss your case with our slip and fall accident lawyers serving Ajax, book your free initial consultation by calling 1-800-JUSTICE today.
