Chéticamp Slip and Fall Lawyer

Accidents can happen at any time, even while carrying out the most routine tasks. Descending a flight of stairs, returning to your car in an icy parking lot, walking down a recently mopped aisle at the store, or engaging in any number of commonplace activities on someone else’s property could have disastrous, long-lasting consequences if a slip and fall accident occurs.

Slips and falls are one of the leading causes of injuries requiring hospitalization. Depending on the circumstances of the accident as well as the age and medical condition of the victim, slips and falls can lead to a number of different injuries, ranging in severity from mild to catastrophic. 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 you were involved in an accident on someone else’s premises and sustained compensable injuries as a result, you might be inclined to blame yourself and your own lack of attention for your accident. In actuality, many injurious slips and falls are, indeed, the results of someone else’s negligence, even if it doesn’t necessarily appear so in the immediate aftermath of an accident. If you were injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Our slip and fall lawyers serving Chéticamp have a history of helping injured community members recover the damages they are rightfully owed because of the injuries they sustained in accidents caused by another party’s negligence. If the owner and/or occupier of the commercial or residential property on which you sustained injuries failed to take reasonable, preventative measures to protect the safety of people visiting their premises, they may be considered negligent. Therefore, they may be responsible for financially compensating you for damages arising from your injuries.

That is because, in this province, property owners/occupiers owe their guests a duty of care. They are legally required to regularly inspect their premises and adequately address any potentially dangerous hazards that exist on-site. Failing to do so and failing to provide guests with sufficient warning about potential hazards on the premises could be considered negligence if the property owner/occupier’s inaction led to an injurious slip and fall.

By working with our Chéticamp slip and fall lawyers, injured accident survivors may be able to pursue a civil claim against the negligent property owner/occupier to recover damages they have incurred because of their injuries. These damages could 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
