Shelburne Slip and Fall Lawyer


After sustaining injuries in a slip and fall on someone else’s property, your first instinct might be to blame the accident on yourself. When slips and falls lead to injuries, people often reflexively think their own clumsiness or lack of caution caused them to hurt themselves in an accident. However, even if it may not be immediately clear in the aftermath of an injury-causing accident, many slips and falls in the region are, indeed, the result of another party or entity’s negligence.

The owners and/or occupiers of both commercial and residential properties in this province owe their guests a duty of care. In the context of premises liability claims, the term “occupier” can refer to:

  • Landlords
  • Property managers
  • Business owners/managers
  • Maintenance technicians
  • Landscapers
  • Superintendents
  • Tenants
  • Anyone who controls access to the space
  • Anyone responsible for the property’s maintenance
  • And possibly more

The people responsible for the safety of guests visiting or engaging with their property are responsible for taking reasonable precautions to reduce the risk of accidents on-site. That means that property owners/occupiers should routinely inspect their premises for maintenance issues that could cause people to be injured in an accident, and take sufficient actions to either rectify the issues or warn guests about them.

Slips and falls are often caused by the most innocent-sounding maintenance issues. However, regardless of how non-threatening these issues may be perceived to be, they have the potential to severely injure unsuspecting accident victims. Common examples of maintenance issues that could 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

When a negligent property owner/occupier fails to take appropriate, preventative measures to ensure the people interacting with their space do not sustain serious injuries in a slip and fall, they may be liable for damages incurred by injured accident victims. As such, if you were injured in an accident on someone else’s property, you might be entitled to compensation.

If you sustained compensable injuries in an accident on someone else’s commercial or resident property, our slip and fall lawyers serving Shelburne may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve. If you are eligible, by working with our Shelburne slip and fall lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault property owner/occupier whose negligence caused you to sustain injuries. By doing so, you may be able to recover damages that have arisen from the injuries you sustain, as well as damages that will arise in the future.
