Amherst Slip and Fall Lawyer

No one expects to sustain serious injuries while performing everyday activities like walking through a parking lot, grocery shopping, or visiting a friend’s residence. However, if the people responsible for maintaining commercial or residential premises fail to address hazardous maintenance issues on their properties, slips and falls can occur. And when they do, unsuspecting accident victims could feel the effects of the property owner’s negligence for years to come.

All property owners and occupiers are required by law to fulfill a duty of care to their visitors. In the context of premises liability claims, “occupiers” could refer to:

  • Landlords
  • Tenants
  • Property managers
  • Business owners
  • Maintenance technicians
  • Landscapers
  • Superintendents
  • Anyone who controls access to the space
  • Anyone responsible for the property’s maintenance
  • And possibly more

In accordance with provincial legislation, property owners and/or occupiers have a responsibility to regularly inspect and routinely perform necessary maintenance on their premises. They are required by law to take reasonable actions to reduce the risk of injurious on-site accidents. That means a property owner and/or occupier should be aware of hazardous maintenance issues on their premises, and should take immediate action to address them. If the potentially dangerous hazard cannot be expediently repaired or removed, the people responsible for the property’s safety should provide guests with adequate warning about it. Failure to properly address dangerous issues on-site could be considered negligence.

The negligence of a property’s owner/occupier could have serious consequences for guests, tenants, customers, employees, delivery personnel, and other passersby. Unaddressed maintenance issues on or around the property could cause people to sustain severe injuries in a slip and fall.

Some injuries commonly sustained in local slip and fall accidents include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • And more

If a property owner/occupier’s failure to take appropriate preventative measures caused you to sustain injuries in a slip and fall, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Injured slip and fall accident victims often incur financial losses as a result of their injuries, including expensive costs of medical care, physical rehabilitative therapies, lifestyle adjustments, lost wages, and more.

By working with our Amherst slip and fall lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim to recover damages you have incurred as a result of your injuries, as well as damages you will incur in the future.
