Thunder Bay Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer
The people and/or entities that own and/or occupy commercial or residential properties in this province have a responsibility to the people who engage with their spaces. Their legal obligations to safeguard the physical health and well-being of people visiting or passing by their premises are outlined in the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act.
In accordance with this provincial legislation, property owners and/or occupiers must take certain precautions to reduce the risk of injurious accidents on their premises, including serious slips and falls. These precautions might include:
- Routinely inspecting the premises for potentially dangerous maintenance issues
- Addressing any hazards in an effective, timely manner
- Shoveling snow before it accumulates too much
- Removing and applying salt to patches of ice
- Clearing cluttered hallways
- Securing loose carpeting/floorboards
- Cleaning spilled liquids
- Replacing burnt out lightbulbs
- Displaying clearly visible warning signs
- And more
If a property owner/occupier fails to take any kind of precaution and an injury-causing accident occurs as a result, they might be considered negligent. Therefore, they might be required to compensate injured victims of slip and fall accidents on their premises for damages they have incurred because of their injuries.
Although slips and falls might sound fairly harmless, in actuality they can be the cause of severe injuries with lifelong implications for the accident victim. The adverse effects of injuries sustained as the result of a slip and fall accident could be physical, psychological, and economic.
Indeed, no one truly appreciates just how costly the process of recovering from injuries can be until they find themselves in the unfortunate circumstances themselves. Many injured accident victims incur substantial economic and non-economic damages as a result of a property owner/occupier’s negligence.
