One instance of negligence can have far reaching consequences. Ontario regulates the rules and responsibilities of land and property owners in its Occupiers’ Liability Act. In the instance of negligence, UL Injury & Disability Law advocates for clients and navigates the law to achieve the best outcome possible.
Slip and fall accidents may occur from hazards including natural elements (ice, snow, rain, etc.), faulty design (e.g. poor lighting, steep stairs, etc.) and/or maintenance neglect (e.g. uneven or slippery surfaces, falling or misplaced merchandise, potholes, loose carpeting, etc.). If you have suffered injuries or damages because of someone’s negligence you may be entitled to be compensation for your loss.
UL Injury & Disability Law focuses on the effects of the wrongdoing and the needs of the client to achieve results.
It is important to note that there is no deductible applied in claims for damages arising from a slip and fall accident as compared to motor vehicle accident claims. Depending on your injuries, you may be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, lost income, future income loss, future cost of care and housekeeping expenses.
