You are not entitled to any compensation unless the owner or occupier of a property is found to be negligent. Simply put, their mistake has to have caused the accident. In most claims, negligence means that the owner of a property failed to have an adequate system of inspection and maintenance in place. This failure to follow basic safety principles needlessly endangers the safety of all people entering the property. This can be failing to make sure the floors are free from spills, or failing to ensure that snow and ice are cleared from a parking lot. By failing to meet their obligation to take all reasonable measures to keep the property safe, an accident victim becomes entitled to compensation.
