Hamilton Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer
Recently mopped floors. Old floorboards. Cluttered walkways. Loose handrails. None of these maintenance issues sound especially dangerous. But when they lead to slips and falls, these seemingly innocuous hazards can cause unsuspecting accident victims to sustain severe– even permanent– injuries.
If you were involved in a slip and fall accident on commercial or residential property owned and/or occupied by another party or entity and sustained compensable injuries as a result, you might be entitled to pursue damages through civil action. By working with our Hamilton slip and fall accident lawyers, you may be able to recover compensation for costs you have incurred because of your injuries.
That is because, in this province, all property owners/occupiers are subject to the laws outlined in the Occupiers’ Liability Act. In accordance with this provincial legislation, property owners/occupiers owe a duty of care to the people visiting, passing by, or otherwise interacting with their premises. As such, property owners/occupiers are required by law to routinely inspect their premises for potential hazards that could lead to an injurious slip and fall and address them in a thorough, efficient, and timely manner. If a property owner/occupier knows about a potentially dangerous maintenance issue on-site– or should know about it– but fails to repair it expediently, remove it from the premises altogether, or provide guests with adequate warning about it, they could be considered negligent. If their negligence causes an accident in which someone else sustains injuries, the at-fault property owner/occupier might be liable for damages incurred by the injured victims of the slip and fall.
