Edmundston Slip and Fall Lawyer


If you were injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s commercial or residential property, your first instinct may very likely be to blame yourself. In fact, many victims of slip and fall accidents in the Edmundston area initially believe themselves to be the cause of their injuries, and blame their own clumsiness or inattentiveness for their misfortune. However, even though it may not be immediately apparent, slips and falls are often the result of another party or entity’s negligence.

This is because, in accordance with provincial legislation, property owners and occupiers have a legal responsibility to keep their premises safe, addressing any potentially dangerous maintenance issues or hazards that could cause injurious accidents in a timely, effective manner. Failure to properly remove, repair, or provide sufficient warning about on-site hazards could, indeed, create the perfect storm of circumstances that causes an unsuspecting visitor to slip and fall. If this is the case, the property owner and/or occupier who failed to uphold their legally required duty of care to their visitors may be considered negligent. If so, they may be responsible for financially compensating the people injured because of their negligence.

In the context of premises liability claims, occupiers may 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

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, including the age and physical condition of the accident victim, slips and falls can cause unsuspecting guests, customers, employees, neighbours, delivery personnel, passersby, and other visitors to the premises to sustain serious injuries. Often, injurious slips and falls occur in fairly innocent-sounding situations, like shopping at a grocery store, returning to your car in a parking lot, or descending a flight of stairs. But if a negligent property owner or occupier has failed to take the safety of others into consideration, these commonplace scenarios can have devastating, even fatal consequences.

Slips and falls can be deadly. They are also one of the province’s leading causes of injuries requiring hospitalization. As a result of injuries sustained in slips and falls, accident victims are often forced to go to great expense. In fact, many injured slip and fall victims incur substantial financial losses related to medical expenses, necessary lifestyle adjustments, and other costs that are essential to their overall recovery. Additionally, if the injuries sustained in a slip and fall prevent accident victims from returning to work, they may experience financial losses related to lost wages as well as reduced future earning capabilities.
