Parry Sound Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, you might be entitled to compensation. That is because, in accordance with provincial legislation, the owners and/or occupiers of commercial or residential properties owe their visitors a duty of care.

According to the Occupiers’ Liability Act, the people responsible for inspecting and maintaining commercial or residential premises have a legal obligation to safeguard the physical well-being of others who might be interacting with the space. Depending on the nature of the property, owners and/or occupiers might be required to take proactive, preemptive safety measures so that a number of people do not get injured in a slip and fall accident. These people might include:

  • Tenants 
  • Customers
  • Employees
  • Neighbours
  • Delivery agents
  • Postal workers
  • Visitors 
  • Passersby 
  • And others

If a property owner/occupier knows about a potentially unsafe maintenance hazard on their premises– or should know about it– but takes no actions to address it responsibly, serious, injury-causing accidents can occur. When these accidents are the result of a property owner/occupier’s failure to take responsible action, the at-fault party might be considered negligent. 

Property owners/occupiers should do their best to repair potentially hazardous maintenance issues in a timely, effective manner. They could also remove them from the premises entirely. Failing that, property owners/occupiers should display clearly visible warning signs alerting guests to the potential dangers on-site. 

While certain neglected maintenance issues might sound harmless at first, they can indeed lead to traumatic, life-changing events. Common examples of potentially hazardous issues that frequently lead to injurious slip and fall accidents include:

  • Improperly cleared snow and/or ice
  • Spilled liquids 
  • Broken or missing handrails 
  • Poor lighting  
  • Wet floors 
  • Uneven surfaces 
  • Loose carpeting  
  • Cracked sidewalks 
  • Potholes 
  • Cluttered walkways 
  • Broken tiles 
  • And more 

Any number of these all-too common maintenance issues could lead to a serious slip and fall accident in which unsuspecting community members sustain serious injuries. If a property owner/occupier failed to take any preemptive safety measures to protect their guests from sustaining injuries in an accident, they might be considered negligent. As such, they might be responsible for providing injured accident survivors with compensation for their injuries.

By working with our Parry Sound slip and fall accident lawyers, people who were injured on someone else’s premises might be able to pursue legal action against the negligent property owner/occupier in an attempt to recover the damages they are rightfully owed.
