Miramichi Slip and Fall Lawyer


Slips and falls can happen when we least expect them. No one expects to be seriously injured while performing a routine task like descending a flight of stairs, shopping at the grocery store, or walking through a snow-covered parking lot. Oftentimes, when Miramichi residents are injured in a slip and fall, their first instinct is to take the blame upon themselves. Believing their own clumsiness, inattentiveness, or lack of caution was responsible for the accident, injured slip and fall victims could find themselves coping with the physical and financial repercussions of someone else’s negligence.

Indeed, many slip and fall accidents that occur on someone else’s property are the result of someone else’s negligence, and not the simple mistakes of an accident victim. Although it may not be immediately apparent in the aftermath of an injury-causing slip and fall, oftentimes, the wrongful conduct of the property’s owner and/or occupier may have created the conditions that caused the accident to occur in the first place.

Throughout the province, the owners and occupiers of both commercial and residential properties have a legal requirement to routinely inspect their premises and address any potentially hazards on-site issues in a timely manner. In accordance with provincial law, property owners or anyone who controls access to the premises and is responsible for its maintenance have an obligation to repair, remove, or sufficiently warn their visitors about potentially dangerous hazards on their property. If they do not meet their obligations and a slip and fall occurs as a result, the property owner/occupier responsible may be considered negligent.

The negligence of property owners/occupiers can have serious real-world consequences. Depending on a number of factors, including the age of the accident victim and the environmental conditions of the accident scene, slips and falls can cause a range of injuries, varying in severity from mild to catastrophic. In fact, depending on the circumstances of the accident, slips and falls can cause injured victims to sustain permanent injuries, or even lose their lives.

Slips and falls are among the province’s leading causes of injuries requiring hospitalization. In Miramichi, one of the most common causes of injurious slip and fall accidents is uncleared ice and snow. When property owners or the people responsible for a property’s upkeep allows heavy snow to accumulate or fails to sufficiently remove slick icy patches around their premises, unsuspecting visitors, customers, employees, tenants, delivery personnel, passersby, and other community members can sustain serious injuries. Some injuries commonly sustained by slip and fall victims 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

Slip and fall accident victims often incur substantial financial losses as a result of the injuries they have sustained. Negligent property owners/occupiers who have not adequately ensured the safety of their visitors may be responsible for financially compensating any accident victims who were injured as a result of their wrongful conduct.
