Slip and fall accidents are among the most common causes of injury in Ontario. They usually occur through a property owner’s negligence.

Slip and Fall Accident Legal Claims

Whether it’s a slippery substance left on the ground, poor lighting, broken steps, ice left on the ground or defects in the pavement, you can seek compensation for sustained injuries. 

The Law in Ontario demands that property owners maintain safe conditions on their premises, however there are different laws governing different types of property owners. For instance, some cases of slip and fall accidents that occur on municipal property require you notify those responsible within 10 business days.
