Quispamsis Slip and Fall Lawyer


In accordance with provincial legislation, the owners and/or occupiers of commercial or residential properties are responsible for performing routine inspections and on-site maintenance to try mitigating the risk of injurious accidents on their premises. In this context, property occupiers could refer to landlords, tenants, property managers, superintendents, landscapers, custodial staff, and anyone else who controls access to the space and is responsible for its upkeep.  If a property owner/occupier fails to fulfill this responsibility, potentially dangerous hazards could develop, and go unnoticed until it is too late.

If a property owner/occupier fails to identify, repair, remove, or adequately warn visitors to the space about potentially harmful on-site maintenance issues, serious slip and fall accidents could occur. Depending on the nature of the premises, visitors could be residents, guests, neighbours, customers, employees, delivery personnel, passersby, or anyone else engaging with the commercial or residential space. Property owners/occupiers owe their visitors a duty of care, and are obligated by law to take reasonable precautions to prevent accidents on their premises from harming the very people who visit it. If a property owner/occupier fails to uphold this duty of care and a guest is injured in a preventable slip and fall accident, the property owner/occupier may be considered negligent. Therefore, they may be liable for damages arising from their visitors’ injuries.

Slip and fall accidents are frequently caused by seemingly innocuous maintenance hazards that go unaddressed by the property owner/occupier. These hazards could exist on or around the premises. Those responsible for the property’s maintenance have a duty to deal with potentially dangerous hazards in a timely and efficient manner. At the very least, they should provide their guests with adequate warnings about issues that could not be sufficiently repaired or removed, so that visitors can take proper precautions beforehand. For example, a caution sign should be placed over recently mopped floors at a grocery store so that customers know they should proceed through the slippery area slowly and deliberately to avoid an injury-causing accident.

Unaddressed or improperly fixed maintenance issues may sound innocent enough. But depending on the age of the slip and fall victim, the type of surface on which they land, and the height from which they fall, slips and falls on someone else’s property can lead to severe injuries. In fact, the injuries sustained in slips and falls are among the leading causes of hospitalizations. Some examples of injuries that could be sustained in a slip and fall 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

If you were injured in an accident on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation.
