Halifax Slip and Fall Lawyer


Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the consequences of a slip and fall can be severe. In Halifax, slip and fall accidents are among the leading causes of injuries requiring hospitalization. While many people may assume that only minor injuries, like bruising, can be sustained in slip and fall accidents, the truth is slip and falls can have fatal repercussions. They can also lead to permanent, debilitating injuries, including:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Nerve damage
  • Internal organ damage
  • And more

When a property owner, manager, or occupant fails to properly identify, remove, or adequately warn people about potential hazards on their property, their negligence could lead to serious injuries. In Halifax, one of the leading causes of slip and fall accidents is improperly cleared ice and snow. Slick, unsalted patches of ice that have been allowed to accumulate on walkways, in parking lots, and outside residences or commercial properties can present a major hazard for local visitors or passersby.

In addition to inclement winter weather conditions, hazards that might lead to injury-causing slip and fall accidents commonly include:

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

If you’ve been injured in an accident on another party’s property, our Halifax slip and fall lawyers may be able to help you recover financial compensation.

According to the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, property owners/occupiers must exercise a reasonable duty of care to people visiting their premises. Their failure to identify and address possible slip and fall risks on their property could make them liable for accidents that occur as a result.

Our slip and fall lawyers in Halifax have a history of fighting for the rights of the injured clients we represent. To learn if you are eligible to pursue financial compensation for injuries you sustained in an accident, contact our Halifax slip and fall lawyers for a free, initial consultation.
