Oakville Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

While slips and falls may not sound like the most dangerous or traumatic accidents, their outcomes can be severe. The majority of injured seniors who require hospitalization are admitted to emergency rooms because of injuries sustained in a slip and fall. However, no matter the age of the accident victim, slips and falls can have profound, life-changing consequences. 

In Oakville, some injuries commonly sustained in local slip and fall accidents include:

Many of these injuries require lengthy periods of hospitalization, intense physiotherapy, and dramatic lifestyle adjustments. Recovering from serious injuries can be demoralizing, socially isolating, and nerve-wracking. As such, many accident victims who were seriously hurt in a slip and fall often develop secondary disabilities in the form of severe mental health concerns. 

After being injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, it can be difficult to know what to do next. Slips and falls often occur while carrying out routine, everyday tasks or errands, and the shock of being involved in an accident while going about one’s regular business can diminish or delay the full severity of the injuries sustained. Therefore, in the immediate aftermath of a slip and fall, accident victims could be unaware of the full extent of their injuries. They might also be unaware of the contributing factors that caused their accident to occur in the first place.

Many Oakville slip and fall accidents causing injuries that require hospitalization are, in fact, the result of someone else’s negligence. While many accident victims might instinctively blame themselves for their injuries, there are often other factors at play.

According to the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the people or entities who own/occupy residential or commercial properties owe their visitors a duty of care. That means they are required by law to take certain steps to ensure the safety of others on their premises. These steps might include routine safety inspections, clearly displaying warning signs around hazards on-site, and repairing potentially dangerous maintenance issues right away. If a property owner/occupier knows about an unsafe issue on their premises (or should know about it) but fails to take any precautions or proactive measures to address it, they could be considered negligent if it causes an injurious slip and fall accident. 

As a result of a property owner/occupier’s negligence, slip and fall accident victims often incur substantial financial losses related to medical expenses, lost wages, lifestyle adjustments, and more. Thankfully, accident victims who were injured on someone else’s property may be eligible to pursue financial compensation from the negligent property owner/occupier whose failure to fulfill their duty of care caused the slip and fall to occur.
