Aurora Premises Liability Lawyer

In Ontario, all property owners have a responsibility to keep visitors to the property as safe as possible at all times. When that is not the case, and a visitor gets injured while on the property, the property owner could be held liable for those injuries.

If you were injured while on someone else’s property and you believe that injury was due to negligence on the part of the property owner, speak to an Aurora premises liability lawyer that can help you claim compensation. A skilled personal injury lawyer can fight to hold the responsible parties accountable.

Different Types of Property in Premises Liability

When most people think about premises liability law, they typically think about a private home owner’s responsibility to keep visitors safe. While private home owners certainly are responsible for keeping people safe, there are many other types of owners and occupiers that are responsible for keeping people safe. These include:

  • Restaurants
  • Stores
  • Offices
  • Factories
  • Healthcare facilities, such as hospitals
  • Parking lots
  • Amusement parks
  • Schools
  • Apartment buildings

When people are injured on these types of properties, they should speak to an Aurora premises liability lawyer who can help.

Types of Violations

The biggest violation injured victims typically think of in premises liability law is slip and falls, typically from icy conditions such as walkways or sidewalks that were not cleared. This definitely is a violation, especially with the cold winters experienced in Ontario, but it is not the only one. Poor maintenance is a common premises liability violation. This can occur when there is uneven flooring that has not been repaired, or when handrails along stairways are broken and unable to provide proper support. There are other kinds of violations as well.

Building Code Violations

Building code violations, particularly in areas that have high amounts of traffic such as an apartment building, can also lead to premises liability claims. For instance, if a stairway is too narrow or does not have proper lighting or does not have a handrail and there is a fire in the building, there may be too many people trying to get down the stairs.

This can cause some people to be left behind in the fire, or it can cause people to fall and get trampled as others try to make their way out. These violations make up a big part of premises liability law.

Swimming Pools

Drowning in swimming pools is another type of premises liability that is seen all too often in Ontario. Pool owners are required to ensure that their pool is completely safe for all who want to enjoy it.

This can include making sure the drain at the bottom does not have too much pressure that can suck and hold a person under water, or that there are no obtrusions or sharp objects that may not be able to be seen when they are under the water.

Swimming pool owners are also required to ensure there is a fence or gate that will keep out visitors when the pool is not being properly supervised. Even when the owner is not around and has not invited anyone into their pool, they may still be held liable if a child is able to wander into their pool and drown because there was no such enclosure. This is known as being an attractive nuisance under premises liability law.

How an Aurora Premises Liability Lawyer Can Help

This list of premises liability violations is certainly not inclusive, but it does include the most common violations in Ontario.

Anytime you are injured on someone else’s property, and you believe the owner or occupier is to blame, you should speak to an experienced Aurora premises liability lawyer right away. They may be able to help you claim compensation for your injuries.
