Stirling Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer
No one imagines that, one day, while they are going about their normal routine, a surprise accident will change the course of their entire lives. Even the most cautious, safety-minded community member can be injured in a slip and fall accident caused by an unsafe, neglected maintenance issue.
Just like no one anticipates being seriously injured in a slip and fall, no one can truly comprehend just how consequential these accidents can be. On top of sustaining physical injuries that could continue to impact an accident victim’s life for years to come, the people who have been injured in slips and falls on other people’s property often find themselves grappling with psychological unrest and financial uncertainty.
The process of recovering from serious injuries can be socially isolating, physically challenging, and emotionally overwhelming. As a result, many seriously injured accident victims who require long periods of hospitalization, intensive physiotherapy, and other lifestyle adjustments to cope with their injuries develop secondary disabilities in the form of severe mental health concerns. These can include:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Insomnia and other sleep disorders
- Alcohol use disorder
- And more
When the injuries sustained in a slip and fall make it impossible for the accident victim to carry out the duties of their jobs, they might face even greater emotional and economic challenges. Recovering from injuries or adjusting to life with newly acquired disabilities can be an overwhelmingly expensive process. Few people have an adequate amount of money saved to weather the financial storm of sustaining a severe injury. If injured accident victims are unable to continue working as a result of their slip and fall, they might struggle to continue paying their regular costs of living in addition to their injury-related expenses.
Our Stirling slip and fall accident lawyers believe that no one should be forced to pay for someone else’s wrongful conduct. Indeed, most slip and fall accidents that occur on someone else’s premises are the result of the property owner/occupier’s negligence. When the negligence of a property owner/occupier leads to an injurious slip and fall, they might be responsible for providing the injured accident victim with compensation.
That is because, in accordance with the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the owners and/or occupiers of commercial and residential properties owe their visitors a duty of care. Failing to uphold this legal obligation by allowing unsafe maintenance hazards to exist on their premises could be considered negligence.
If you were injured one someone else’s property, it might not be clear to you right away whether the property owner/occupier’s negligence caused your accident to occur. To discuss the circumstances of your case with our slip and fall accident lawyers serving Stirling, call 1-800-JUSTICE today.
