Shediac Slip and Fall Lawyer


When negligent owners and/or occupiers of residential or commercial properties fail to address potentially dangerous maintenance issues on their premises, people visiting or interacting with the space could be injured in preventable accidents. The consequences of accidents on other people’s property can be severe. Slips and falls account for many of the province’s injuries requiring hospitalization. Depending on a number of factors, including the circumstances of the accident, the victim’s age, and their medical condition, slips and falls on someone else’s property can even cost visitors their lives.

If you were injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s premises, you may be entitled to compensation. That is because property owners and occupiers in this province owe the people who visit their premises a duty of care. Failing to uphold that duty of care could be considered negligence.

Since it is incumbent upon property owners/occupiers to regularly inspect their space and perform routine upkeep, the people responsible for guests’ safety should be aware of potentially hazardous maintenance issues on their premises. They should also take appropriate preventative measures to ensure that those hazards do not pose a risk to human health by repairing them in a timely fashion, removing them from the premises altogether, or providing visitors with adequate warning about them.

By failing to take reasonable measures to protect their visitors’ physical safety from improperly maintained hazards on their premises, property owners/occupiers could put unsuspecting guests, customers, employees, delivery personnel, or passersby at risk of sustaining physical injuries in a slip and fall. If their negligence leads to an injury-causing slip and fall, the responsible property owner/occupier may be required to provide financial compensation to injured accident victims for damages they have incurred as a result of their accident.

Examples of maintenance issues that are often left unaddressed and frequently cause 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
