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.

It is best to speak with an injury lawyer as soon as possible after a slip and fall. Different locations have different notice requirements. For example, if you are injured on municipal property, you must provide written notice of the incident and your injuries within 10 days of the incident. If you are injured on private property, due to snow or ice, you only have 60 days to provide written notice to the occupier of the property. Failure to provide proper notice can permanently block future lawsuits.

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.
