Barrie Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer


Accidents can happen anywhere. Loose handrails can give away, causing unsuspecting visitors at a residential building to careen forward. Recently mopped floors in a grocery aisle can cause an elderly shopper to slip and fall. Improperly cleared snow or ice could pose a serious hazard for citizens passing by a building’s entrance. Even the most cautious, safety-minded community members can be seriously injured in slip and fall accidents resulting from the negligence of another party or entity.

Provincial law stipulates that the owners of both commercial and residential properties have an obligation to keep their employees, customers, tenants, visitors, delivery personnel, as well as passersby safe from harm on and around their premises. In accordance with the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the people who own, manage, control access to the space, and/or are responsible for its upkeep owe a duty of care to visitors. That means a property’s owners and/or occupiers are required by law to take proactive measures to prevent injurious accidents on their premises from occurring.

As such, property owners and/or occupiers are required to perform routine inspections of their premises and ensure that any hazardous maintenance issues are addressed thoroughly and expediently. By taking preventative safety precautions, property owners/occupiers fulfill the duty of care they are legally required to provide to others. These precautions might include:

  • Repairing the maintenance issue in a timely manner
  • Thoroughly shoveling snow
  • Regularly salting ice
  • Ensuring all surfaces are secure (i.e. no loose carpeting or missing floorboards, etc.)
  • Clearing walkways of clutter
  • Displaying clearly visible warning signs on slippery floors or steep stairs
  • Providing verbal warnings to guests as they enter
  • And more

However, if the people or entities responsible for addressing potentially dangerous hazards on the premises fail to uphold their duty of care by neglecting or overlooking issues that could result in injuries, unsuspecting Barrie residents could be seriously injured in a slip and fall accident. If a property owner/occupier’s failure to fulfill their duty of care results in an accident in which someone sustains compensable injuries, the responsible parties may be considered negligent. Therefore, they may be required to compensate slip and fall accident victims for damages they have incurred as a result of the injuries they have sustained. These damages often include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Attendant care 
  • Physiotherapy 
  • Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
  • Prescriptions
  • Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities 
  • Ambulance services
  • Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Housekeeping services
  • And possibly more
