Slip/Trip and Fall Accidents
There are numerous reasons why someone may trip or fall. Some of those reasons include water, poor lighting, ice, or snow. Injuries from these types of falls can range from bruises to fractures. Slip/trip and fall incidents can occur on both public and private property, including in malls, apartment or condominium complexes, houses or sidewalks. In Ontario, it is the responsibility of the owner or occupier of property to ensure the safety of their premises. Municipalities are the biggest landowners in the province. If someone trips or falls on a roadway or sidewalk, the municipality may be liable.
Sometimes short deadlines for making claims apply, especially if the property on which you are injured is owned by a Municipality. It is important that you speak to a lawyer right away. At Melekhovets Law, we will advise you on the proper course of action to ensure your legal needs are met.BACK
