Richmond Hill Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Even though they may not look dangerous, small deficiencies on other people’s properties and seemingly innocent maintenance issues around their premises can lead to serious accidents. Hazards like improperly cleared snow and ice, recently mopped floors, broken handrails, loose carpeting, uneven flooring, and parking lot potholes can cause unsuspecting community members to sustain severe injuries in a slip and fall accident. 

After being injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s property, it may not be immediately apparent who was at-fault for the accident. Oftentimes, the actions (or inactions) of a property’s owner and/or occupier contribute to hazardous conditions on-site, thereby increasing the risks of injury-causing accidents on the premises. 

The owners and/or occupiers of commercial and residential properties are responsible for reasonably maintaining their premises and for addressing any potential dangerous hazards in a timely and efficient manner. According to the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the people or organizations in charge of a space’s upkeep owe a duty of care to the property’s visitors. Depending on the nature of the property, visitors might include:

  • Employees
  • Tenants
  • Customers
  • Postal workers
  • Delivery agents
  • Guests
  • Neighbours
  • Passersby
  • And more

An occupier might fail to fulfill their duty of care by neglecting potentially dangerous maintenance issues on their property. If a property’s owner/occupier knows about a hazardous deficiency on their premises (or should know about it) and fails to either rectify it or warn their guests about the risks it poses, unsuspecting visitors can sustain serious injuries in a slip and fall. If a property owner/occupier’s failure to uphold their duty of care leads to an injury-causing slip and fall accident, they might be considered negligent. If so, they could be held liable for damages incurred by injured accident victims. 

In many cases, the outcomes of a slip and fall can vary based on the age and medical condition of the person involved in the accident. For example, a fall that might have only minor repercussions for a younger accident victim could be disastrously life-changing for a senior citizen. Seniors are the most likely accident victims to require hospitalization as the result of a slip and fall. In fact, in Canada, four out of five injury-related hospitalizations involving seniors are the result of a fall.

If you sustained compensable injuries on someone else’s property, you might be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault property owner/occupier whose negligence led to your accident.
