New Waterford Slip and Fall Lawyer

In this province, the owners/occupiers of both commercial and residential properties are required by law to fulfill a duty of care to the other people who interact with their space. By regularly inspecting and maintaining their premises, the people responsible for the property could reduce the risk of visitors injuring themselves in slip and fall accidents on-site.

According to the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the people responsible for a premises’ upkeep and who control access to the property are required to take proactive, preventative measures to adequately address potentially dangerous hazards on-site. If they neglect to do so and fail to take appropriate safety precautions, the space’s guests, tenants, customers, employees, delivery personnel, and other passersby could sustain serious injuries in a slip and fall.

If property owners/occupiers fail to repair potentially dangerous maintenance issues, remove them from the premises, or provide their visitors with adequate warning about them, slips and falls could occur. When they do, unsuspecting visitors to the space could sustain a host of injuries, ranging in severity from mild to catastrophic. As it happens, slip and fall accidents are among the leading causes of injuries requiring hospitalization throughout the province.

Common examples of improperly addressed maintenance hazards that frequently 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

If you were injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation. By working with our slip and fall lawyers serving New Waterford, you may be able to pursue a civil claim against the negligent property owner/occupier whose failure to address hazardous issues on-site caused you to sustain compensable injuries. If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim, our New Waterford slip and fall lawyers may be able to help you recover damages you have incurred as a result of your injuries. These damages often include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs

  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
