Wipe Up – It Could Wipe Someone’s Life Out!
Slip and fall accidents are one of the commonest types of accidents that happen to people. They can occur to anyone, anywhere, in any season and at any time.
The fundamental reason behind most of these accidents is someone’s fault or negligence.
Some of them end in serious disability or even death, when vital organs are damaged. The tragic incident of the tourist who slipped on ice and fell to his death at Albion Falls near Hamilton Ontario is a case in point. The absence of hand-rails and fencing around the tourist spot led to the mishap.
Not all such accidents end in tragedy, but they can certainly impact your life and that of your family’s.
Contact a Toronto slip and fall accident lawyer immediately if you or a dear one has suffered injuries in a slip and fall accident.
What The Law Says
Ontario laws state that owners and occupiers of property have a duty of care to ensure that their premises remain safe for all those who lawfully visit. Commercial, domestic and municipal property owners and occupiers have to maintain their property by taking reasonable measures to have it cleaned, repaired, etc.
The owner knew or should have reasonably known through a system of due care that the dangerous condition existed.
The injured victim was unaware of this hazard.
When these two conditions can be proved, along with evidence to show that the fall resulted in injuries and subsequent losses to the plaintiff, compensation can be sought from those responsible.
