Toronto Back and Spine Injuries Lawyer


Back and spine injuries can be serious, painful, and in extreme cases, impact the rest of a victim’s life. Even injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents can result in physical pain, immobilization, and significant financial losses.

In Toronto, many slip and fall accidents resulting in back and spine injuries can be caused by other property owners’ negligence. Some common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Wet floors
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Improper or faulty lighting
  • Loose flooring
  • Uncleared icy patches or snow

The severity of a back or spine injury sustained in a slip and fall accident can vary from moderate bruising to severe damage to the spinal cord. If someone else’s irresponsible behaviour caused an accident in which you sustained injuries, a Toronto back and spine injuries lawyer may be able to help you pursue accountability and restitution.

Common Symptoms of Back and Spine Injuries

Pain from back and spine injuries could range from mild to severe. In many cases, this pain may last between several days and a few weeks. However, some back and spine injuries can result in chronic pains that could persist for years and worsen progressively.

Vertebrae protect the thick bundle of nerves that comprise the spinal cord. Any type of accident that causes one or more vertebrae to break can permanently damage a person’s spinal cord. Since the spinal cord acts as a superhighway for the brain to send signals to other parts of the body, a spinal cord injury (SCI) can affect many physiological areas, including sensations, strength, and motor abilities. If the spinal cord is injured, neurological impulses may be impeded, leading to loss of mobility and sensation.

Recent studies from the Praxis Institute show that more than 86,000 Canadians currently live with spinal cord injuries. In cases where these injuries were sustained by trauma, like an accident, the financial burden can be substantial. Canadians living with spinal cord injuries incur an estimated average lifetime cost of $2 million per individual.

Liability for Back and Spine Injuries After a Slip and Fall

If you slipped and fell on someone else’s property, its owner or occupier may be liable for your injuries. If it’s proven that their negligence was the direct cause of your back and spine injuries, property owners may be considered legally responsible for any financial losses you incurred as a result of your accident.

According to the Ontario’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, both commercial and residential property owners owe a duty of careto their rightful visitors, such as employees, customers, or guests. This means that property owners or occupiers are responsible for keeping their premises safe, within a reasonable expectation. In order to ensure the safety of everyone on their property, the owner must regularly maintain their premises and remove, repair, or adequately alert individuals to potential on-site hazards.

Property owners must take precautions to prevent accidents on their premises. If you sustained back or spine injuries because another property owner failed to take reasonable precautions, a Toronto personal injury lawyer may be able to help you recover damages. To do so, they may compile and analyze various forms of evidence, including:

  • Eyewitness accounts
  • Photos and video surveillance footage of the accident scene
  • Medical records
  • Police reports
  • Insurance assessments
