Port Hope Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Slip and fall accidents can happen when you least expect them. Often they occur while engaging in routine, everyday activities. Slick patches of improperly cleared ice or snow that’s been allowed to accumulate, recently mopped aisles at the grocery store, loose handrails in a friend’s residential building, or other seemingly harmless maintenance issues could cause a slip and fall accident in which unsuspecting visitors to the premises sustain serious, sometimes permanent injuries.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, including the conditions of the accident scene, the height from which the victim fell, and the age and medical condition of the accident victim, slips and falls can be fatal, or indirectly lead to premature deaths. This is especially true for senior citizens, the demographic most likely to be involved in a slip and fall accident. 

85% of our seniors’ injury-related hospitalizations are the result of a fall. Seniors are the members of the population who are most susceptible to slips and falls, as well as the age group most likely to sustain serious injuries as a result. These injuries frequently include:

Seniors who sustain hip fractures as the result of a slip and fall accident could require hip replacement surgery. Unfortunately, these invasive, complicated surgeries often do not fully alleviate the pain and discomfort of a fractured hip. A number of post-surgical complications can arise, robbing injured slip and fall accident victims of their mobility, their comfort, and their abilities to live independently. Furthermore, 30% of seniors who undergo hip replacement surgery lose their lives within one year of the procedure. 

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, you might be entitled to compensation. That is because the people and/or entities who own/occupy commercial or residential properties in the province have a legal responsibility to fulfill a duty of care to others. A property owner/occupier’s failure to abide by the responsibilities mandated in the Occupiers’ Liability Act could be considered negligence. 

Therefore, if you sustained compensable injuries in a slip and fall accident caused by a property owner/occupier’s negligence, you might be entitled to compensation. By working with our Port Hope slip and fall accident lawyers, you might be able to recover damages for costs you have incurred as a result of the injuries you have sustained. These damages often include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Attendant care 
  • Physiotherapy 
  • Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
  • Prescriptions
  • Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities 
  • Ambulance services
  • Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Housekeeping services
  • And possibly more
