Causes of Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries
The cause of your slip, trip, or fall injury matters, and we can help you get to the bottom of it. Even if you believe the accident resulted from your own carelessness and nothing more, there is a good chance that something else caused or contributed to it, whether you realized it at the time or not. Once a slip, trip, and fall lawyer serving Milton determines how your injury actually occurred, we may be able to start taking steps to hold the responsible party or parties liable.
Some of the possible causes of slip, trip, and fall injuries include the following:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Loose or missing stairs
- Loose or missing handrails
- Unmarked floor obstacles
- Uneven pavement or flooring
- Cracked pavement or flooring
- Poor lighting
At your free initial case evaluation, we may be able to discuss your accident and how it happened and create a list of parties we believe might be liable. Once you decide to move forward with us, we may launch an investigation into your injury. Our goal is to produce as much evidence as possible pointing to the liability of the parties we have identified. Then we may be able to pursue them for the compensation you may be eligible to receive. For a free initial consultation today, call us at 1-800-JUSTICE.

Parties Who Might Be Liable for Your Slip, Trip, or Fall Injury
Potentially liable parties include the following:
The Property Owner
Ontario law requires property owners to exercise a duty of care to guests, which includes keeping the premises safe and free from hazards and, if a dangerous condition emerges, taking steps to shield people from it and warn them of it. If the owner of the property where you were injured failed to take these steps, we may be able to hold them liable.
The Property Manager
Property managers have many of the same responsibilities as property owners when it comes to maintaining safe premises and correcting any deficiencies that arise.
If a structural or foundational deficiency in the property caused or contributed to your slip, trip, or fall injury, we may be able to go after the builder and hold them liable.
Liability for Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries
To help you recover compensation for your slip, trip, or fall injury, we must show that the other party or parties are liable for your accident. To do that, we must present evidence demonstrating the following:
The Property Contained a Dangerous Condition
For the property owner or manager to be liable for your injuries, we must show that the property itself contained a dangerous or hazardous condition that you could not have been expected to know about or avoid.
The Responsible Party Was Aware of the Hazard
We must then show that the owner or manager of the property knew about the condition after it arose and before you became injured because of it.
The Responsible Party Failed to Protect You From the Dangerous Condition
The final step is to show how the responsible party or parties failed to protect you from the dangerous or hazardous condition, which, had they done so, would have prevented your injury.

How Much Your Claim Is Worth
We want to help you collect the compensation you may be eligible to recover. This compensation may include money for your economic damages as well as any noneconomic losses you have suffered (meaning things that cannot be quantified in dollar terms). A slip, trip, and fall lawyer serving Milton may be able to recover a settlement that includes compensation for the following and possibly more:
These costs can include hospital bills, surgeries, doctor visits, prescription drugs, medical devices, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and more.
Your lost wages include all earnings you have forfeited because of missed work on account of your injury.
Reduced Earning Capacity
Reduced earning capacity refers to the difference between how much money you are currently able to earn and how much you would likely be able to earn had you not been injured. We may be able to help you recover the difference from the responsible party or parties.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering, along with emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life, may be damages for which you can collect compensation after a slip, trip, or fall injury.
