Cape Breton Slip and Fall Lawyer

Slip and fall accidents can have serious consequences. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, including the height of the fall, the hardness of the surface, and the age/medical condition of the accident victim, the outcomes of slips and falls could be disastrous.

In Cape Breton, slips and falls often lead to serious injuries requiring hospitalization. Injuries commonly sustained as the result of a slip and fall 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 you were injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s commercial or residential property, it is possible that the negligence of its owner or occupier was responsible for creating the unsafe conditions that led to your accident. Since all property owners and occupiers in the province are legally required to provide a duty of care to all guests who visit their premises, a failure to take reasonable actions to address unsafe conditions on the property may be considered negligence.

Therefore, anyone who owns, occupies, operates, maintains, or controls access to either a commercial or residential space has a legal obligation to routinely inspect and regularly maintain their property. If they become aware of a hazard on their premises that could lead to an injury-causing accident, or if they should be aware that this dangerous condition exists, but take no measures to repair or remove it, serious slips and falls could occur as a result. Similarly, if the people responsible for ensuring visitors’ safety on their property fails to provide sufficient warning about potentially dangerous maintenance issues, guests, tenants, customers, employees, and any other visitors to the premises could be injured in an accident.

In Cape Breton, one of the leading causes of slips and falls is improperly cleared ice and snow. However, a number of commonplace hazards on or around another person’s property could easily cause an unsuspecting visitor or passerby to sustain injuries in an accident. Some examples of hazards that could lead to injurious accidents include:

  • Recently mopped floors
  • Spilled liquids
  • Broken or missing handrails
  • Poor lighting
  • Wet floors
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Loose carpeting
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Broken tiles
  • And more
