Bridgewater Slip and Fall Lawyer

Hazardous on other people’s commercial or residential properties may sound innocent enough, but if left unaddressed by the premises’ owner and/or occupier, serious accidents can occur. Slips and falls caused by commonplace maintenance issues often result in severe injuries which could adversely impact unsuspecting accident victims in profound ways. Indeed, slip and fall accidents resulting from improperly maintained hazards on other people’s property are among the leading causes of hospitalization in the region.

Common examples of often-neglected maintenance hazards that result in injurious slips and falls include:

  • Uncleared ice and snow
  • Spilled liquids
  • Broken or missing handrails
  • Poor lighting
  • Wet floors
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Loose carpeting
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Broken tiles
  • And more

The people who own and/or occupy properties in the province are required by law to routinely inspect and regularly maintain their premises in order to reduce the risk of injurious accidents on-site. According to the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the people who control access to commercial or residential properties and are responsible for their upkeep have a duty of care to the people who interact with the space. This may include guests, tenants, customers, employees, delivery personnel, and passersby.

Since property owners and/or occupiers are required to inspect the premises regularly, they should be aware of potentially dangerous issues on-site. If the responsible parties fail to address hazards in a timely fashion by repairing them, removing them, or providing guests with sufficient warning about them, serious accidents can occur. When they do, the property owner/occupier who failed to take appropriate preventative measures may be considered negligent.

Therefore, if you were involved in an accident on someone else’s commercial or residential property and sustained compensable injuries as a result, the negligent property owner/occupier whose failure to consider your safety caused your accident to occur may be responsible for providing you with financial compensation. If so, our slip and fall lawyersserving Bridgewater may be able to help you pursue the compensation to which you are entitled.

Our Bridgewater slip and fall lawyers may be able to help you recover damages you have incurred as a result of your injuries. These damages often include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more
