In Ontario, a person can pursue a court action against a property owner for injuries that occurred as a result of a slip and fall or trip and fall accident. It is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible if you have been injured in as a result of a slip/trip and fall accident. Depending on who owns the property where you fell, you may have as little as 7 days to notify the owner of the property of your accident. A lawyer can also help you to insure that a proper liability investigation is conducted, which will help prove the cause of the fall and whether or not reasonable steps were taken to prevent falls from occurring. You have 2 years from the date of the accident to commence a lawsuit, however, it is very important to provide written notice of your intention to commence a legal action against the owner of the property as soon as you can. If you have sustained serious injuries as a result of a fall, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, future income loss, out of pocket medical expenses and compensation for pain and suffering (know as “general damages”). If you have questions about slip and fall accidents, the lawyers at Aaron Waxman & Associates can explain to you what limitation periods apply to your case and what type of compensation you are entitled to as a result of your injuries.
