Slip and fall accidents are among the most common causes of injury in Ontario. They usually occur when there is a dangerous condition left on someone else’s property, whether it’s a slippery substance left on the ground, poor lighting, broken steps, debris left on the ground or defects in the pavement. 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 the responsible within 10 business days. Sometimes it is hard to know who is responsible for your injuries. It is thus very important to speak to a lawyer as soon as you can. It is also important to gather as much information as possible, including photographs of the ground or hazardous area that caused your injury. It is also important to notify someone in charge of the premises when the fall occurs, if you can. The more details and evidence you have of the conditions of the property where you were injured, the better chance you have of your case being successful.
