While a trip, slip, or fall may not immediately conjure images of severe injuries in most people’s minds, a bad fall can lead to head injuries, spinal injuries, broken bones, and severe bruises—even if the fall seems minor.

Types of Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries
A slip, trip, or fall only takes a second, and often by the time you realize a hazardous condition exists, it is too late—it has already contributed to your slip and fall injury. The important thing to remember is that no matter how your injury occurred, no matter how seemingly minor the hazard that caused or contributed to it, you are likely eligible for compensation, as Ontario’s premises liability laws set strict standards for owners and managers when it comes to the upkeep of their property.
Here are just a few hazards that frequently lead to slip, trip, and fall injuries:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Loose stairs
- Loose, missing, or unstable handrails
- Unmarked floor obstacles
- Uneven or cracked pavement or flooring
- Inadequate lighting of dark areas

The Liable Parties
Most slip, trip, and fall injuries have at least one liable party who is not the injured person. In other words, there is a strong chance that someone other than yourself is legally liable for your injuries. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our job is to find out who that is and to hold them accountable.
Most often, the responsible parties for a slip, trip, or fall injury include one or more of the following:
The Property Owner
Property owners in Ontario have a duty of care to keep their premises safe and free from hazards under the Occupiers’ Liability Act. If a dangerous situation emerges, the property owner must tend to it right away. In the meantime, they must take proactive steps to shield guests from and warn them about the situation. If they come up short in any of these requirements, we can hold them responsible.
The Property Manager
Property managers—of both residential and commercial properties—have a similar duty of care to that of property owners. It is their responsibility to keep the property hazard-free and to alert guests of any potentially dangerous situation.
If a structural or foundational defect in a building or structure contributed to your injury, we may be able to hold the builder liable, as well.
How We Hold the Responsible Parties Liable
For our slip, trip, and fall injury claim to be successful, we will prove three things:
The Property Had a Dangerous or Hazardous Condition
Using evidence, we will show that a dangerous or hazardous condition existed on the property, one that the owner or manager should have known about and should have taken more robust steps to remedy.
The Property Owner or Manager Knew About the Condition
We will also demonstrate that the owner or manager of the property knew about the condition but did not take appropriate steps to remedy it.
You Did Not Receive Adequate Protection from the Hazardous Condition
Lastly, we will tie elements one and two together by offering evidence showing that you did not receive enough protection from the dangerous condition on the property.
