Collingwood Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Depending on a number of factors, slip and fall accidents can have severe consequences. In some circumstances, these often-preventable accidents can also lead to the premature death of the accident victim.

Although many accident victims may be able to walk away from a slip and fall relatively unharmed, depending on the physical condition of both the accident scene and the person involved, slips and falls can have profound, life-changing outcomes.

Senior citizens are the demographic most likely to be involved in a slip and fall accident. They are also the age group most vulnerable to serious or life-threatening injuries as the result of a fall. In fact, across the country, 85% of seniors’ injuries requiring hospitalization were sustained in a fall. Seniors often sustain multiple injuries as the result of a slip and fall accident. These injuries frequently 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.

Even though seniors are more likely than other age groups to sustain serious injuries in a slip and fall accident, anyone could be at risk of being hurt because of a property owner and/or occupier’s negligence. In this province, the owners/occupiers of commercial and residential properties are required by law to keep their premises safe. That means they are responsible for routinely inspecting and maintaining their properties, so as to reduce the risk of injurious slips and falls on-site. If a property owner/occupier neglects their responsibilities and an unsuspecting accident victim sustains compensable injuries in a slip and fall, the at-fault party may be considered negligent. If so, they may be liable for damages incurred by their injured victims. 

If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to recover compensation for the injury-related damages you have amassed. To learn more, discuss your case with our Collingwood slip and fall accident lawyers by taking advantage of a free initial consultation.

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, time may be of the essence. Failure to begin legal proceedings in accordance with the province’s statute of limitations could prevent you from pursuing compensation from the at-fault party entirely.
