Ottawa Broken or Fractured Bones Lawyer


Injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents send thousands of Canadians to the hospital each year, per the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). These accidents can happen both indoors and outdoors and have the potential to cause serious injuries, like broken or fractured bones.

Often, slip and fall accidents resulting in broken or fractured bones occur as the result of another property owner’s negligence. In these cases, the owner’s failure to remove or repair hazards on their premises created the conditions for injury-causing accidents to occur. Examples include:

  • Defective balconies
  • Loose stairs
  • Inadequately cleared ice or snow
  • Wet floors
  • Improper or faulty lighting
  • Uneven surfaces

Breaking or fracturing bones in an accident on another party’s property could lead to prolonged recovery processes, lost wages, medical expenses, and more. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s property, an Ottawa broken or fractured bones lawyer may be able to help you pursue damages for costs incurred as a result.

Understanding Different Types of Bone Fractures

The structural frame of the human skeleton is composed of 206 bones, per MedicineNet. Despite the large number of differently sized bones that make up the shell protecting our internal organs, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) divides bone fractures into five major categories:

  • Compound fractures: Skin has been pierced by the broken bone
  • Stable fractures: Broken ends of the bone line up, and are barely out of place
  • Transverse fractures: Bones are broken in a horizontal fracture line
  • Oblique fractures: Fractures occur at an angle with the axis of the bone
  • Comminuted fractures: Bones are broken into three or more pieces

According to Ontario’s Occupiers Liability Act, a landlord, property manager, occupier, or property owner must ensure that routine maintenance is performed on their property. These individuals are legally responsible for:

  • Maintaining reasonably safe conditions on their property.
  • Adequately warning all rightful visitors of hazards on the property.

In Ottawa, slip and fall accidents resulting in broken or fractured bones often occur because of a property owner’s failure to repair or remove hazards on their premises. If you’ve broken or fractured bones in a slip and fall on someone else’s property, an Ottawa personal injury lawyer may be able to help you recover damages from the owner by establishing the following:

  • There existed a legal duty for exercising reasonable care.
  • The at-fault party failed to exercise reasonable care.
  • That negligence caused physical harm.
  • That physical harm resulted in actual damages.

An Ottawa broken or fractured bones lawyer may also be able to help you prove that the property owner could foresee that on-site hazards could lead to accidents. If the owner was aware of hazards but failed to remove or repair them, they may be responsible for the broken or fractured bones you sustained.

Recovering Damages for Broken or Fractured Bones Caused by Accidents

Individuals who broke or fractured bones in an accident on someone else’s property may be eligible to recover damages by filing a personal injury claim. An Ottawa broken or fractured bones lawyer may be able to help eligible accident victims recover the following costs:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income due to an inability to work
  • Rehabilitation costs

In order help their clients recover compensation for costs resulting from their broken or fractured bones, an Ottawa lawyer may help them compile and analyze various forms of evidence, including:
