Sarnia Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer


After being involved in a slip and fall, instead of reporting the incident, taking photos of the accident scene, or even seeking medical attention, many injured accident victims try to leave the area as quickly as possible. Slipping and falling in public can feel embarrassing in the moment, and many people instinctively blame their own clumsiness for their accidents. 

However, when they take place on someone else’s property, most slip and fall accidents in Sarnia are usually the result of someone else’s negligence. Indeed, according to the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the people who own and/or occupy residential or commercial property owe their guests a duty of care. In premises liability claims, the term “occupier” might refer to:

  • Landlords 
  • Property managers 
  • Business owners/managers
  • Maintenance technicians 
  • Landscapers
  • Superintendents 
  • Tenants
  • Anyone who controls access to the space
  • Anyone responsible for the property’s maintenance
  • And more 

These occupiers are responsible for making sure their space is safe to visit. That means they should be regularly inspecting the premises for potentially dangerous safety issues, performing routine maintenance, addressing any hazards that might exist on the premises, or at the very least, displaying adequate warning signs to help visitors avoid an accident. 

If a property owner/occupier does not live up to their responsibilities, visitors to the premises can sustain severe injuries as the result of a slip and fall accident. In these situations, the at-fault property owner/occupier who failed to fulfill the duty of care they owe their guests might be required to provide them with compensation for injury-related financial losses they have incurred because of their accident.
