Sault Ste. Marie Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

If you were recently injured in a slip and fall, it might already be clear how impactful– and expensive– these accidents can be. Slips and falls often cause moderate to severe injuries that affect all areas of an accident victim’s life.

Sometimes, the injuries sustained in slips and falls are so severe that they prevent accident victims from performing the duties of their jobs. Therefore, many injured accident victims lose wages due to missed work. If their injuries permanently impede their ability to work in their chosen occupational field, accident victims might experience financial losses in the form of reduced future earning capabilities. 

Furthermore, sustaining physical injuries in a slip and fall can take a toll on injured accident victims’ mental health. Recovering from injuries can be a long, disheartening, socially isolating experience. Adapting to life with newly acquired disabilities or chronic pains can feel like an insurmountable challenge. It is no surprise that many people who have sustained disabling medical conditions in a slip and fall accident consequently develop additional disabilities and serious mental health concerns, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Insomnia and/or other sleep disorders
  • Alcohol use disorder
  • And more

While going about their regular business, regular people could lose their livelihoods, their mobility, and their physical abilities. They could find themselves suffering physically, psychologically, and economically, all because of someone else’s negligence.

Indeed, most slip and fall accidents in Sault Ste. Marie are the result of someone else’s failure to uphold a duty of care to others. All property owners/occupiers in the province are required to abide by the rules mandated within the Occupiers’ Liability Act. That means they have a legal obligation to take proactive measures to prevent injurious accidents from occurring on their premises. They must routinely inspect their property and be on the lookout for maintenance issues that could potentially cause a slip and fall accident. These maintenance issues might sound harmless; indeed, they might even appear harmless to the casual observer. However, they can lead to severe accidents that cause severe injuries. Issues that are commonly neglected that frequently lead to injurious slip and fall accidents in Sault Ste. Marie 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 

If a property owner/occupier neglects potentially dangerous hazards on-site and an injury-causing accident ensues as a result, the at-fault party/entity might be considered negligent. That means that they might be responsible for financially compensating injured victims of slip and fall accidents on their premises. 

To learn if you might be eligible for compensation for injuries you sustained on someone else’s property, contact our Sault Ste. Marie slip and fall accident lawyers today.
