Slip and Fall: A Leading Cause of Injury-Producing Accidents


The early involvement of a personal injury lawyer will make all the difference to the outcome of your case.

If you have slipped or fallen on another person’s property due to ice, snow, water, poor lighting or a hidden hazard, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, wage loss and future health care costs.

“Slip and fall” is a term used to describe an accident that occurs as a result of being subjected to hazardous conditions on public or private property. Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe and free of structural defects or unusual dangers both inside and out. Such defects or dangers can include wet floors, badly lit stairs, cracks in sidewalks or holes in parking lots.

Slip and falls can result in severe strain, broken bones or even paralysis. Aside from causing pain or psychological trauma, these injuries can prevent you from returning to work and can interfere with your daily routine.

If you have been hurt as a result of a slip and fall accident caused by an occupier’s negligence, it is important to note that Canadian law allows limited reporting times to file a complaint. Contact Linett & Timmis immediately to ensure your rights are preserved and that you have not missed your opportunity to be compensated for your losses.
