Saint John Slip and Fall Lawyer


When Saint John property owners and/or occupiers fail to remove, repair, or adequately warn people about potential hazards on and around their premises, unsuspecting visitors or passersby can be seriously injured in a slip and fall accident. In the context of premises liability cases, occupiers refer to landlords, property managers, commercial or residential tenants, or other individuals who control access to the property and oversee its maintenance. According to provincial law, all property owners and/or occupiers in Saint John must take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of others on their premises. Failure to do so could constitute negligence.

If the negligence of a Saint John property owner/occupier led to a slip and fall on their premises in which you were seriously hurt, they may be responsible for compensating you financially for damages arising from your injuries.

Depending on a number of factors, the physical repercussions of a slip and fall can be severe. The outcome of a slip and fall may depend on the accident victim’s age and medical condition. The same accident that may allow a young person to walk away with negligible injuries like scrapes and bruises could have devastating physical impacts on older accident victims. Not only are senior citizens more likely to be involved in a slip and fall accident, because of their advanced age and possible frailty, seniors are more susceptible to injuries requiring hospitalization as the result of a slip and fall.

Environmental factors could also increase an accident victim’s likelihood of sustaining serious injuries in a slip and fall. Nobody expects to be injured in an accident while performing commonplace activities such as descending a flight of stairs, walking through a parking lot, or shopping at the grocery store. However, a loose or broken handrail, potholes in the asphalt, and recently mopped floors could cause an unsuspecting Saint John resident going about their daily routine to suffer serious injuries.

These are only a handful of examples of hazardous maintenance issues on other people’s properties that could cause serious physical harm and significantly disrupt an individual’s life. Other hazards that commonly lead to slip and fall injuries requiring hospitalization include:

  • Uncleared ice and snow
  • Improperly maintained weather hazards
  • Uncovered cables
  • Spilled liquids
  • Recently mopped floors
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Loose tiles or carpeting
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Poor lighting
  • Broken or missing handrails
  • Improperly maintained sidewalks
  • And more

Our slip and fall lawyers serving Saint John have a history of fighting for the rights of people who have been seriously injured because of another party or entity’s negligence.
