Sackville Slip and Fall Lawyer


Owning and/or occupying a commercial or residential property comes with certain responsibilities. Throughout the province, property owners/occupiers owe a duty of care to the people who visit or interact with their premises. In this context, the term “occupier” can refer to anyone who controls access to the space or is responsible for its upkeep. This can include:

  • Landlords
  • Tenants
  • Property managers
  • Business owners/managers
  • Maintenance technicians
  • Landscapers
  • Superintendents
  • And possibly more

Among a property owner/occupier’s many responsibilities is the legal responsibility to routinely inspect the premises and perform timely maintenance operations on potentially hazardous issues. Because they are required to perform regular inspections of the premises, property owners/occupiers should be aware of maintenance issues that could prove dangerous for unsuspecting visitors to the space. Upon discovery, property owners/occupiers have a responsibility to sufficiently repair the hazardous maintenance issue, remove it from the premises entirely, or provide others with adequate warning about it. Failure to do so could cause unsuspecting visitors to the property to sustain injuries in accidental slips and falls.

Throughout the province, one of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents that lead to injuries requiring hospitalization is uncleared ice and snow. During the winter months, if property owners/occupiers do not properly salt and clear slick patches of ice or if they allow snow to accumulate to dangerous levels, unsuspecting guests and passersby could sustain serious injuries in a slip and fall.

Other examples of potentially dangerous maintenance issues that commonly lead to injurious slip and fall accidents include broken or missing handrails, recently mopped floors, loose carpeting, spilled liquids, potholes, poor lighting, and more. While these maintenance issues may sound innocent enough, they can, in fact, cause slip and fall accident victims to sustain a range of injuries varying in severity. These injuries often 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 the owner/occupier of a commercial or residential property failed to adequately address hazardous maintenance issues on their premises and you sustained compensable injuries because of a resulting accident, our slip and fall lawyers serving Sackville may be able to help you recover compensation for damages you incurred or will incur in the future. By working with our Sackville slip and fall lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim against the negligent property owner/occupier whose failure to consider their guests’ safety caused you to sustain injuries.
