Timiskaming Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Slip and fall accidents can happen when you least expect them. And while your first instinct after being injured in a slip and fall might be to blame yourself or your own clumsiness for the accident, in reality they are very frequently someone else’s fault entirely. 

The people who own and/or occupy residential or commercial properties owe other people a duty of care. In these scenarios, the term “occupier” can differ based on the nature of the property and who is responsible for its upkeep. Occupiers are often:

  • Landlords 
  • Property managers 
  • Business owners/managers
  • Maintenance technicians 
  • Landscapers
  • Superintendents 
  • Tenants
  • Anyone who controls access to the space
  • Anyone responsible for the property’s maintenance
  • And more 

According to the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, property owners/occupiers are legally required to take the safety of others into consideration. They should regularly maintain their premises, address potentially unsafe issues, or, at the very least, provide guests with clearly displayed warnings about maintenance hazards that might pose a danger to human health. These maintenance hazards sound commonplace and harmless, but if neglected, they can lead to serious slip and fall accidents with serious outcomes. 

Examples of commonly ignored maintenance issues that often lead to slip and fall accidents on someone else’s property 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’s failure to fulfill the duty of care they owe to their guests and people passing by their premises leads to a slip and fall in which the accident victim sustains compensable injuries, the at-fault occupier might be considered negligent. Therefore, they might be responsible for financially compensating the accident victim for damages associated with their injuries. 

Being injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property can be a disheartening, demoralizing, socially isolating, and expensive process. Many injured accident victims incur substantial financial losses that can greatly impact their abilities to continue making ends meet.
