Every year, thousands of Canadians are injured in falls. They slip on ice, trip over obstructions and step into potholes. Falls can occur indoors, outdoors, on private property, or in public areas, such as parking lots, sidewalks, store entrances and workplaces.
Slips and falls can result in serious injuries, including sprains, fractures and head trauma. What sometimes starts off as simple pain and discomfort can become worse, especially if the victim is older. Some injuries result in serious and significant long-term suffering that alters your daily activities and affects the lives of those around you.
If this happens to you, the occupier of the property might be liable for your injury. An occupier is someone who has care, custody or control of the property and can include the owner or tenant of the property, a property manager, or a municipality.
If you or a loved one suffers an injury as a result of a fall, you may be entitled to compensation for the losses and harm you experienced. This compensation may include damages for pain and suffering, loss of past and future employment income, housekeeping and gardening expenses, and past and future health care expenses.
The experienced lawyers at Bogoroch & Associates LLP can help. We understand the pain you are going through and will strive to obtain compensation for your injuries under the common law or the Occupiers’ Liability Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. O.2.
