Toronto Slip-and-Fall Lawyer
It only takes an instant to slip or trip and fall, and become severely injured, due to slippery or uneven surfaces. Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere on any type of surface, and can result in some very serious injuries.
Trip and Fall injuries happen when your foot catches on an object and you lose balance or stumble and fall. They are most often caused by uneven tiles or carpeting, damaged sidewalks, items and cords on the ground. Poor lighting is often a factor that contributes to trip and fall accidents.
Common trip and fall injuries include fractures, elbow and knee joint injury, and facial injuries.
Slip and Fall accidents involve losing traction due to a wet or slippery substance on the ground. Most slip and fall accidents are caused by spills, loose mats, or floors with poor and uneven traction. Snow and ice are two very common causes of slip and fall accidents as well.
Are Property Owners Responsible for Trips, Slips and Falls?
Although some falls are unavoidable, many often could have been prevented through regular maintenance, proper signage, or common sense solutions like salting walkways. Owners are obligated to ensure their properties are reasonably safe, and failure to take ordinary precautions can make them responsible for your injuries.
