Toronto Slippery Floors Lawyer

Although they may sound harmless, slippery floors can lead to serious accidents. Individuals involved in slip and fall accidents may sustain injuries requiring hospitalization, lengthy rehabilitation costs, or worse. Per Statistics Canada, falls are the leading cause of accidental injuries in Canada. The majority of these injuries are sustained by senior citizens, who may experience medical complications as a result of their accidents.

If you were injured as the result of a slippery floor on someone else’s property, a Toronto slippery floors lawyer may be able to help you seek accountability and restitution.

Slippery Floors Can Cause Serious Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere. But when walking conditions on someone else’s property are compromised by slippery, greasy, or icy residues, the actions of that property’s owner or occupier may indirectly cause accidents resulting in serious injuries.

A property owner’s failure to adequately clear walking hazards like ice or snow on their premises may be considered negligence. Failing to properly warn guests of slippery floor conditions may also constitute negligent behaviour. For example, if a grocery store’s employees fail to display proper warning signs alerting customers to recently mopped floors, the store’s management may be held responsible for accidents caused by the slippery floor.

Whether located in or around residential or commercial buildings, slippery floors are a liability. According to Ontario’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, property owners have a duty of care. This means that property owners are legally required to ensure that rightful visitors, including customers, employees, and guests can safely move around the premises.

Property owners are responsible for taking actions to prevent injuries on their premises. If they can anticipate that a slippery floor may cause an accident, but take no measures to fix the hazard or warn guests about it, they may be liable for damages incurred as a result of accident-related injuries.

Recovering Damages for Injuries Caused by Slippery Floors

The severity of injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents can vary from mild to life-threatening and can depend on a number of factors, like the victim’s pre-existing medical conditions or age. A senior who falls on a slippery fall is more likely to sustain a severe injury than a younger adult. These situations are extremely serious, as fractures sustained by elderly individuals can lead to additional medical complications. In addition, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) reports that 20% of the hip fractures sustained by Canadian seniors in a fall result in death. Slippery floors may seem innocuous, but they can cause a family to lose a loved one.

If you’ve been injured as the result of a slippery floor, a Toronto slip and fall lawyer may be able to help you recover damages incurred because of your accident. Recoverable damages may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages due to an inability to work
  • Reduced earning capability
  • Disability or disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering

In order to help their clients establish fault for fall-related accidents on someone else’s property, a Toronto slippery floors lawyer may help compile and analyze various forms of evidence, including:

  • Eyewitness testimonies
  • Medical reports
  • Incident reports
  • Photos or video surveillance of the accident scene
