Sudbury Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer


After being involved in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, it can be difficult to know which steps to take next, especially if the incident resulted in serious injuries. In the immediate aftermath of a surprising, traumatic accident, an injured person’s body might go into shock. When that happens, the body produces adrenaline which can delay or diminish the pain of injuries sustained. As a result, it could take several hours, or in some cases several days for the victim of a slip and fall accident to fully comprehend the real severity of the injuries they have sustained. By the time they begin to feel the full effects of their accident, it might be too late to fully address the medical complaint.

That is why it is imperative to seek medical attention immediately following a slip and fall accident, even if you do not immediately feel as though you have sustained serious injuries. Doing so could help avoid unnecessary complications in the recovery process, and might provide injured slip and fall accident victims with useful medical documentation that could be used as evidence in the future, should the injured party decide to pursue legal action against the at-fault property owner/occupier whose negligence caused the slip and fall to occur in the first place.

Indeed, most slip and fall accidents in Sudbury are the result of another party or entity’s negligence. In accordance with the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, all owners/occupiers of commercial or residential properties owe others a duty of care. Failure to fulfill that duty of care by neglecting potentially dangerous maintenance issues could be considered negligence. 

Therefore, if you sustained injuries on someone else’s property, you might be eligible to pursue legal action against the negligent property owner/occupier whose failure to take your safety into consideration led to your injury-causing slip and fall. In order to illustrate the direct causation between the property owner/occupier’s negligence and the financial losses you have sustained as a result of being injured, it is prudent to begin collecting evidence immediately after being involved in the slip and fall accident. In addition to seeking medical treatment as soon as possible, it might also be prudent to:

  • Take photos of the accident scene
  • Complete an incident report with the proper authority
  • Interview eyewitnesses and exchange contact information with them
  • Keep detailed notes about your diagnosis, treatment plan, rehabilitation schedule, etc.
  • Record a daily pain journal documenting your recovery experience 
  • Maintain thorough records of financial losses you have incurred (including mileage to appointments, lost wages due to missed work, and more)
  • Contact a Sudbury slip and fall accident lawyer
