People who have been injured as the result of a slip and fall accident may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Owners and tenants of homes, condominiums, shopping malls, parking lots, private businesses as well as government buildings are obligated to keep their property reasonably safe. This obligation requires them to ensure that their property and the activities taking place on their property do not pose a risk of harm to visitors.
Property owners must prevent unsafe conditions and risk of harm to members of the public. Some examples of unsafe conditions would include wet or slippery floors, poorly designed or constructed stairs, poorly designed or constructed walkways, as well as icy or slippery walkways or sidewalks.
In Ontario, slip and fall injury victims can recover damages compensating them for all of their losses, including their pain and suffering; past and future lost income; future health care; home maintenance costs; as well as other out of pocket expenses.
The law imposes important time limits relating to when you must notify the owner of the property where you fell; and when you must start your claim. If you do not adhere to these time limits you may be prevented from making a claim for compensation.
