Truro Slip and Fall Lawyer

Slip and fall accidents can happen when you least expect them. In Truro, slips and falls are a leading cause of injuries requiring hospitalization, and frequently occur while performing routine, everyday activities.

Depending on a number of factors, including the physical conditions of the accident scene and the age/medical condition of the accident victims, the consequences of slip and fall accidents could be devastating. Senior citizens are the age group most likely to be involved in slips and falls, as well as the demographic most likely to sustain serious injuries because of these accidents. Whereas a younger accident victim may be able to walk away from their slip and fall with unnoticeable injuries, a senior involved in the exact same accident could sustain life-changing injuries as a result.

Some injuries commonly sustained in local 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

If you were injured in a slip and fall on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to financial compensation. That is because, across the province, the owners and occupiers of both commercial and residential properties are required to take appropriate safety measures to protect the safety of their visitors. Failure to do so could be considered negligence.

Since all property owners and occupiers are legally required to provide their visitors with a duty of care, it is incumbent upon them to routinely inspect and maintain their premises. They should be aware of potentially dangerous maintenance issues on their properties, and take swift, thorough actions to repair or remove on-site hazards. If they cannot do so immediately, they should adequately warn guests about the issue so that they can proceed with extra caution. Depending on the nature of the property, the owner/occupier’s failure to take any action at all could cause their guests, tenants, customers, employees, delivery personnel, and other passersby to sustain serious injuries. In these situations, the negligent property owners/occupiers may be liable for damages incurred by the injured victims of slip and fall accidents on their premises.

Injured slip and fall accident victims may be required to undergo long periods of hospitalization, engage in rehabilitative physical therapy, and pay expensive costs of necessary medical care. If you sustained compensable injuries in an accident on someone else’s property, our slip and fall lawyers serving Truro may be able to help you pursue a civil claim to recover damages you have incurred or will incur in the future.
