If you have slipped, tripped and/or fallen on someone else’s property because of dangerous conditions that existed on that property, you may be entitled to compensation. Our team of slip and fall lawyers make sure you are properly compensated for any injuries as a result of these conditions.

Common Causes of Slips and Falls

Conditions that a court may determine to be dangerous generally appear because the owners or the people who occupy that property are not being careful. The most common sources of dangerous conditions occur because:

  1. People allow the condition of a floor, stair, parking lot, or even lighting to fall into disrepair;
  2. People do not clean properly or at all so that debris, garbage, or other substances accumulate; and
  3. People do not reasonably keep up with winter conditions like ice and snow build up.

Everyone who owns, occupies, manages or maintains property in Ontario has a legal duty to take all reasonable steps to keep people who use that property safe. This duty is part of our provincial law and is written in the “Occupiers Liability Act”.

Everyone has a duty to mind their own safely and take reasonable steps to ensure they are not injured. However, even if you are partly to blame for your own fall, you can still make a successful claim against the owner or occupier of the property for their share of your losses.

Hello, finally stopping by to say thank you for everything! I had the honor of having Jill McCartney work my case, amazing person to work with she is very nice, explains things very thoroughly. No complaints. - K.W.

As the COO of a midsize company I contacted Siskinds with regards to an intricate and somewhat challenging H.R. issue, and we were directed to Christopher Sinal. Upon review of this complex situation, his in depth knowledge of H.R. law allowed us to construct a clear and strategic plan. Phone calls and email enquiries were dealt with efficiently and timely. Chris displayed his competency and confidence in our final negotiations to bring closure to the case. We appreciate his preparedness and professionalism in representing our firm. - B.D.

When I was reflecting on the year 2020, and thinking of the people that had the most impact on me, you [Rasha El-Tawil] quickly came to mind. I was stressed and uncomfortable for the past few years, but when you took my case, I have since been able to relax and focus on other aspects of my life. I want to take a moment to thank you for making my 2020 easier. Not only have you contributed to my personal case, but you’ve also taught me the traits that an amazingly kind and intelligent lawyer should have. -T.H.
