Determining Liability for Your Trip and Fall Injuries
When you accept an invitation to visit a restaurant, store, or another type of property, you do not expect it to result in serious harm for you. Canadian law protects your right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit under the following conditions:
- The condition that caused your trip and fall occurred regularly, and the danger was therefore preventable.
- The property owner knew of the danger yet did nothing to repair or warn others of the situation.
- The danger existed so long that there is no excuse for the property owner not knowing about it.

How Trips Occur Due to Neglectful Property Owners
According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, a trip occurs when an object obstructs your path. Examples of how your foot may strike an object, causing you to trip, include:
- Torn or wrinkled carpet
- Obstructed view
- Uncovered cables
- Uneven thresholds or walking surfaces
- Poor lighting
- Wet floors
- And other conditions
Whether it is at your place of work or a night out with friends, a trip may severely impact your health. Many patients who trip strike their heads against a hard surface, resulting in a severe brain injury.
If your loved one experienced a traumatic brain injury, they may never return to the person you knew before the accident. This type of serious injury affects normal brain function and may impact your loved one in the following ways:
- Reduced motor function, resulting in poor balance and muscle weakness
- Impaired cognitive skills, making reasoning and comprehension difficult
- An inability to experience sensations such as touch and taste
- Periods of depression or outbursts of anger
The changes you witness are difficult to watch. Your loved one may require more care than you can provide at home and require a long-term care facility. Living apart from your loved one is emotionally devastating but often necessary for victims with a severe brain injury.
When a negligent property owner fails to keep you or your loved one safe from harm, it is not fair, and they must be held accountable for their actions. Not repairing a leaky roof known to create wet floors is unacceptable.
