Sydney Slip and Fall Lawyer

In accordance with provincial legislation, all property owners and occupiers are required to routinely inspect and maintain their premises. This rule applies to those who own, manage, or control access to both commercial and residential spaces. In order to ensure the safety of people visiting the premises, it is the property owner and/or occupier’s responsibility to repair or remove potentially dangerous hazards on-site. If potentially harmful maintenance issues cannot be sufficiently addressed, visitors should receive adequate warning about the hazard. If the person responsible for other people’s safety on the premises fails to take these reasonable preventative measures, serious slip and fall accidents can occur.

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere to anyone. However, depending on the accident setting and the age of the accident victim, slips and falls can have radically different outcomes. Whereas a younger accident victim may be able to walk away from an accident scene with negligible injuries, if a senior citizen is injured in the same slip and fall, they could feel the adverse effects of their accident for the rest of their lives.

That said, if a negligent property owner or occupier fails to adequately address hazardous maintenance issues on their premises and a slip and fall accident occurs as a result, regardless of the accident victim’s age or medical history, the consequences can be severe. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, including the height of the fall and the hardness of the surface on which they land, slips and falls could cause accident victims to sustain injuries that require hospitalization. Injuries commonly sustained in slip and fall accidents 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

Injury-causing slip and fall accidents often occur on properties that are owned, operated, or occupied by other parties. They can happen in seemingly safe places where everyday activities take place. No one expects to be seriously injured while walking down a grocery store aisle, returning to their car in a parking lot, or descending a flight of stairs while visiting a friend. However, if the property’s owner or occupier did not take reasonable actions to ensure the safety of their visitors, unsuspecting people’s lives can be changed forever.

Since all property owners and occupiers in the province have a legal obligation to provide a reasonable duty of care to the people who interact with their space, a failure to address hazardous on-site maintenance issues could be considered negligence. If the negligence of a property owner or occupier caused you to sustain injuries in an accident on their premises, our slip and fall lawyers serving Sydney may be able to help.

Injured victims of slips and falls often incur costly expenses related to their recovery, medical treatment, lifestyle adjustments, and more. By working with our Sydney slip and fall lawyers, injured accident survivors may be able to recover financial compensation for damages they have incurred because of their accidents.
