Antigonish Slip and Fall Lawyer


If you were injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s commercial or residential property, it is easy to blame yourself. Many accident victims think their own clumsiness or lack of attention was responsible for the slip and fall in which they sustained injuries. However, in many situations, even though it may not be apparent right away, the negligence of others could ultimately have been responsible for creating the conditions that allowed your accident to occur.

Slips and falls can be dangerous. Depending on the circumstances of the accident– including the age of the accident victim and the physical conditions of the accident scene– slips and falls can have devastating consequences. This is especially true for elderly accident victims, who make up the majority of injured slip and fall victims requiring hospitalization. Seniors are not only more likely to be involved in a slip and fall than younger accident victims; they are also more likely to sustain serious injuries as a result.

While younger slip and fall accident victims may be able to walk away from the accident scene without even a bruise, the same accident could cause a senior citizen to sustain severe, life-changing injuries. These injuries often 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 your slip and fall occurred on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to financial compensation. That is because, in this province, the owners and occupiers of both commercial and residential properties owe their visitors a duty of care. That means, they must take reasonable precautions to protect the physical safety and well-being of anyone interacting with their premises.

If a property owner/occupier fails to routinely inspect their premises and address any potentially hazardous maintenance issues on-site, unsuspecting guests could be seriously injured in unexpected slips and falls. Property owners/occupiers should take preventative measures to ensure their visitors’ safety by repairing potentially dangerous hazards, removing them from the premises, or providing their guests with adequate warning about them. Failure to do so may be considered negligence.

Injured slip and fall victims may be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the negligent property owner/occupier whose failure to take sufficient safety-related precautions led to your injury-causing accident. By working with our slip and fall lawyers serving Antigonish, you may be able to recover financial compensation for damages you incurred as a result of being injured.
