New Glasgow Slip and Fall Lawyer

If you were injured on someone else’s commercial or residential property, you may be entitled to compensation. That is because, in this province, in accordance with the Occupiers’ Liability Act, property owners and/or occupiers are required to fulfill a duty of care to the people interacting with their premises. In the context of premises liability claims, “occupiers” could 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

To reduce the risk of on-site injuries, the people responsible for ensuring the safety of visitors to the property are required to routinely inspect and maintain the premises. If a potentially dangerous maintenance issue exists on-site that could present a hazard to unsuspecting guests, tenants, customers, delivery personnel, or other visitors to the premises, the owner and/or occupier should know about it, and they should take necessary steps to immediately address it. If the hazardous maintenance issue cannot be repaired or removed sufficiently, the owner/occupier should warn visitors about it. Failure to take any necessary preventative actions to address the on-site hazard could be considered negligence.

Many hazards that frequently cause people to be injured in slip and fall accidents sound innocent enough, however they can be responsible for causing an accident victim substantial physical trauma, emotional distress, and financial instability. Common examples of often-neglected maintenance hazards that result in injurious slips and falls include:

  • Uncleared ice and snow
  • Spilled liquids
  • Broken or missing handrails
  • Poor lighting
  • Wet floors
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Loose carpeting
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Broken tiles
  • And more

No one expects to sustain serious injuries while performing everyday activities like walking through a parking lot, grocery shopping, or visiting a friend’s residence. However, if the people responsible for maintaining commercial or residential premises fail to address hazardous maintenance issues on their properties, slips and falls can occur. And when they do, unsuspecting accident victims could feel the effects of the property owner’s negligence for years to come.
