  • Toronto Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers: Informing You about Your Rights

    May 8, 2017

    Don’t Assume It Was Your Fault 

    Toronto slip and fall injury lawyers Singh Barristers know from experience that injured victims in slip and fall accidents often  assume that it was “just an accident” or they blame themselves for being careless. 

    In fact, property-owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are kept reasonably safe for all legitimate visitors. This includes stores/supermarkets, private/public buildings/spaces, residences, commercial areas, government/municipal property, etc. 

    Under the Ontario Occupier’s Liability Act, property-owners have to take reasonable measures to prevent hazards on their properties that could cause harm. 

    Contact the nearest personal injury lawyer in Toronto in case of a slip and fall injury sustained in an accident. You may be entitled to compensation. 

    Property-Owner Must Do’s 

    Property owners must ensure that unsafe conditions are promptly dealt with. This includes the full extent and use of the premises. If the property is rented, the tenant has an obligation under the rental agreement, to keep the property in good condition. They’re responsible for any damages caused by them or those under their responsibility (children, pets, guests etc) and protect the property from neglect or abuse. Owners have a duty to repair defective conditions that fall within the rental agreement. 

    Property owners have to maintain their premises according to minimum standards laid down regarding: 

    • Exterior areas including parking-lots, gardens, drainage, paving, dust-control
    • Signs, fencing, hand-rails installation, maintenance
    • Waste and garbage
    • Building-structure
    • Stairs, entrances, exits
    • Decks, balconies, roofs
    • Plumbing, electrical, sewage
    • Debris, abandoned vehicles, articles
    • Nuisances, unsafe conditions 

    and many others.
