St. Catharines Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

People who have sustained injuries in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property often feel the adverse effects of their incident in all areas of their lives. Slips and falls can impact accident victims’ physical, psychological, and financial well-being for years to come. 

A number of different factors can determine just how significantly a slip and fall accident victim’s life will be affected. Depending on the height of the fall, the physical conditions of the accident scene, and the age/medical condition of the accident victim, the outcomes of slips and falls can be severe. These accidents can even be fatal, or indirectly accelerate the accident victim’s untimely demise. 

For example, if an eldery accident victim fractures their hip in a slip and fall, they might require hip replacement surgery to recover from their injury. Senior citizens are the age group most prone to slip and fall accidents. In fact, seniors make up more than half of all injury-related hospitalizations in the country and 85% of seniors admitted to emergency rooms were hospitalized because of injuries they sustained in a slip and fall. 

Seniors who sustain hip fractures in a slip and fall accident often find themselves struggling through a new daily reality filled with excruciating pain and intense discomfort. In order to properly address their injuries, they might be required to undergo complicated, invasive hip replacement surgeries. However, complications arising from hip replacement surgeries can have severe outcomes, even fatal ones. In fact, 30% of seniors who undergo hip replacement surgeries lose their lives within one year of their procedure. 

Although senior citizens might be the age group most likely to sustain severe injuries in a slip and fall, in St. Catharines, the age of accident victims requiring hospitalization for injuries sustained on someone else’s property ranges from the very young to the elderly. The negligence of property owners can have disastrous repercussions for any unsuspecting slip and fall accident victim, regardless of their age.

In St. Catharines, injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents often include:

If you were injured on someone else’s property and sustained financial losses as a result, our St. Catharines slip and fall accident lawyers may be able to help you recover compensation. That is because, in this province, the people/entities that own and/or occupy commercial and residential properties are required to abide by the rules outlined in the Occupiers’ Liability Act. As such, they must provide other people interacting with the space with a duty of care, taking proactive measures to prevent injurious accidents on their premises. If they fail to do so and an injury-causing slip and fall accident occurs on their property, they might be considered negligent. 

No one should have to suffer the consequences of someone else’s negligence. If you were injured on someone else’s property because they failed to take your safety into consideration, call our slip and fall accident lawyers serving St. Catharines today.
