How Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries Occur
A slip, trip, or fall can happen in a variety of ways. The important thing to remember no matter how your injury occurred is that even if you think it resulted from your own carelessness or clumsiness, there is a good chance that someone other than yourself was at least partly responsible. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our job is to identify the responsible party or parties and build a strong case, backed by substantial evidence, showing their liability.
We can help you recover compensation for a slip, trip, or fall injury caused by the following and more:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Loose, missing, or uneven stairs
- Missing or unstable handrails
- Unmarked obstacles on floor
- Cracks or uneven surface in floor or pavement
- Poor lighting
At your free, no-obligation initial case evaluation, we will sit down with you, discuss how your injury occurred and who might be responsible, and go over your legal options with you, advising you of what to expect in the days and weeks ahead. To start the process today, call Preszler Injury lawyers at 1-800-JUSTICE.

Determining the Liable Party
Even if you do not believe anyone else caused or contributed to your injury, it is worth your time to speak with a slip, trip, and fall lawyer serving North Bay and let them investigate for themselves. Oftentimes, we have worked with clients who were convinced that they were not eligible for compensation, only to discover, following our investigation, that one or more parties engaged in negligent behavior that contributed to our client’s injury and thus owed them financial compensation.
Potentially liable parties for your slip, trip, or fall injury in North Bay include:
The Property Owner
Property owners in Ontario have a duty of care to their guests under the Ontario Occupiers’ Liability Act. They must keep their property in safe condition, free from hazards. If a potentially dangerous situation emerges on the property, they must take care of it quickly, and in the meantime, they must take robust steps to shield visitors from it.
The Property Manager
Like property owners, property managers, meaning people who get paid to oversee the day-to-day operations of a piece of commercial or residential property, have a duty to keep the premises safe and hazard-free.
Many slip, trip, and fall injuries on private property occur due to structural or foundational defects in the building or premises. In such cases, the builder may be financially liable.
How We Hold Property Owners and Managers Liable
Preszler Injury Lawyers pursues property owners and managers when our clients suffer slip, trip, and fall injuries on private commercial or residential property. We can hold the owner or manager of the property where your injury occurred liable by demonstrating a few facts:
A Dangerous Condition Was Present on the Property
We will present evidence showing that the property featured a dangerous or hazardous condition that caused or contributed to your injury.
The Owner or Manager Was Aware of the Condition
We will then show that the property owner or manager was aware of the condition. We can do this through statements they made or by arguing that due to the nature of the condition, its placement on the property, and how long it existed, there is no excuse or good reason for the owner or manager not to have known about it.
You Were Not Adequately Protected from the Dangerous Condition
To tie our case together, we will present evidence making it clear that the property owner or manager did not do enough to protect you from the hazardous condition.
