Markham Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Slip and fall accidents in Markham are rarely the result of the accident victim’s inattentiveness or lack of caution. Instead, these traumatic incidents are frequently the result of a property owner or occupier’s failure to fulfill their legal obligations.

In accordance with the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, people who own and/or occupy residential or commercial properties owe their visitors a duty of care. Depending on the nature of the property, its tenants, employees, customers, guests, delivery personnel, and even passersby have the right to expect that they will not be involved in an injurious accident on or around the premises. Instead, the owners and/or occupiers of the property must address any potentially hazardous issues on-site in a thorough and timely manner. This means they should perform regular inspections of the space and report potentially dangerous issues to the responsible parties.

Nobody imagines that, while they are going about their daily routines, something shocking, painful, and potentially life-changing will occur. However, because of the negligence of others, countless members of the local community sustain severe physical injuries, develop debilitating mental health concerns, and incur substantial economic losses after being involved in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property. 

Just as nobody anticipates being involved in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, very few people are financially prepared for what is often a long and expensive recovery process. Depending on the severity of the injuries they sustained, accident victims may be unable to carry out the daily tasks associated with their jobs. That means that, because of someone else’s negligence, an innocent accident victim could lose a substantial amount of money in lost wages and reduced future earning capacities at a time when they are struggling under the financial burden of their injuries. 

If a property owner/occupier knows about a dangerous hazard on their premises – or should know about it– but fails to take proper action to prevent accidents from occuring, they could be considered negligent. As such, they may be responsible for providing injured accident victims with financial compensation for damages that they have incurred as a result of being injured on their premises. 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 

If you were injured on someone else’s property and are unsure of which steps to take next to secure the financial compensation you might be owed, call 1-800-JUSTICE today and receive a free initial consultation with our Markham slip and fall accident lawyers.
