Slip & Fall Accidents

After sustaining injuries in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, it can be difficult to know which actions to take next, or where to turn for accountability and compensation. Here are answers to some of the questions most frequently posed to our Ontario slip and fall accident lawyers.

After a slip and fall accident on someone else's property, it is essential to seek medical attention immediately. Report the incident to the property owner or manager and get their contact information. Collect evidence, such as photographs of the scene, names and contact information of witnesses, and any other relevant information. Contact our Ontario slip and fall accident lawyers to discuss your legal options during a free initial consultation.
It is important to report the incident to the office of the city’s clerk as soon as possible. In a written letter delivered by registered mail within 10 days of the accident, provide the city clerk with relevant information, such as the date, time, and location of the accident, any maintenance flaws or hazards that might have been responsible for your fall, and the injuries you sustained. Take photos of the scene, gather witness information, and seek medical attention before scheduling a free initial consultation with a slip and fall accident lawyer.
The time it takes to settle a slip and fall accident case can vary. Some cases settle within a few months, while others may take several years. The timeline can depend on a number of factors, such as the complexity of the case, the severity of the injuries sustained, and the willingness of the parties involved in the claim to negotiate.
Generally speaking, you have two years from the date of your accident in which to begin legal action. However, in certain situations, additional limitations can appy. For example, if your slip and fall accident was the result of improperly cleared ice and/or snow, you must provide the negligent parties with a written notice of claim within 60 days of your accident in order to pursue legal action against them during the two-year limitation period.
The strength of a slip and fall case depends on several factors, such as the severity of the injuries you have sustained and the availability of evidence proving that the property owner/occupier’s negligence caused the accident to occur. To determine whether you have a viable case, contact our Ontario slip and fall accident lawyers for a free initial consultation.
By working with our Ontario slip and fall accident lawyers, you may be able to recover compensation for damages you have incurred (or will incur in the future) as a result of the injuries you sustained on someone else’s premises. These damages will be case-specific, determined by the financial losses you have and/or will sustain. You could be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, reduced future earning capabilities, and other financial losses related to your accident.
