In Toronto, suffering injuries as the result of a slip fall accident may entitle you to personal injury compensation. Owners and tenants of parking lots, homes, businesses, government agencies and those exercising responsibility over practically every other place where people frequent are obliged to keep their premises safe for the public. This duty requires the occupier to ensure that the premises and the activities taking place on the premises do not pose a risk of harm to people frequenting these places.
The duty protects victims of slip and fall accidents from: Injuries resulting from fires, injuries occurring at, casino, restaurant, amusements park and other commercial establishments.
You may be entitled to claim slip and fall injury compensation from the person responsible for the injury. This injury compensation is normally paid by the responsible person’s insurer. In Ontario, slip and fall injury victims who suffer serious and permanent injuries can recover damages compensating them for all of their losses, including their pain and suffering, their past and future lost income, their extraordinary future health care and home maintenance costs, and their out of pocket expenses.
Time limits govern when you must notify the responsible parties that you intend to bring a slip and fall accident injury claim and they govern when you must start your claim for compensation. These time limits can restrict your rights to recover your losses. Not everyone is entitled to claim compensation from the person who caused the slip and fall accident. Each claim is different. Assessing the value of your slip and fall accident claim and determining responsibility requires analysis by an experienced slip and fall accident lawyer.
Our team has helped injury victims recover compensation from negligent property owners, department stores, amusement parks, hotel operators, building inspectors and government bodies responsible for keeping properties safe.
Making a successful slip and fall injury compensation claim requires proof that another party or person was negligent and responsible for the injury. This proof often requires expert analysis.
Reporting the slip and fall accident to the property owner, taking notes of details surrounding your accident, recording contact information of witnesses to the incident and taking photos of the location of the slip and fall accident can help prove fault and assist you in recovering full compensation for your slip and fall injuries.
