Every year, thousands of Canadians are injured in falls. They slip on ice, trip over obstructions and step into potholes. Some falls occur indoors, some outdoors, some are on private property, some 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 might be liable for your injury. This could include a business proprietor, home owner, or municipality, i.e. anyone whose inaction or negligence created a dangerous situation.
