Rainy River Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Have you been injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property? If you incurred financial losses because of the injuries you sustained, you might be entitled to compensation.

The people and/or entities who own commercial and residential properties in this province are required by law to take appropriate safety measures to protect the physical well-being of others on their premises. Their legal obligations are outlined in the provincial Occupiers’ Liability Act.

In accordance with this provincial legislation, property owners/occupiers are required to perform routine inspections of their premises. If they discover– or should have discovered– unsafe hazards on-site, they must take immediate action to properly address the safety issue. That might mean performing repairs, removing the maintenance hazard from the premises entirely, or providing guests with clearly communicated warnings about it (such as prominently displayed warning signs or pylons). Failure to take any action at all could be considered negligence. 

The negligence of property owners/occupiers can have serious repercussions. Many potentially dangerous maintenance issues sound perfectly commonplace and harmless, but in actuality, they can lead to profound physical, emotional, and economic distress. Some of the most common hazards that frequently lead to injury-causing slip and fall accidents in Rainy River include:

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

By neglecting these potentially dangerous slip and fall hazards on their premises, property owners/occupiers essentially shirk the duty of care they are legally required to provide to others. Therefore, if their negligence leads to a slip and fall accident in which another person sustains injuries, the at-fault property owner/occupier might be required to provide them with financial compensation for both economic and non-economic damages that they have incurred. 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 

If you were injured on someone else’s property, you might not immediately realize that the property owner/occupier’s negligence was directly responsible for your slip and fall accident. By working with our Rainy River slip and fall accident lawyers, you might be able to pursue legal action against the responsible property owner/occupier in order to recover the compensation you rightfully deserve.
