Can I sue if I slipped on an icy parking lot or pedestrian walkway in Ontario, Canada?
Yes, provided that the property owner and/or winter maintenance contractor was negligent in maintaining the premises.
Ontario law allows you to advance a claim for negligence that results in a slip and fall injury on icy surfaces. Ontario slip and falls on ice and snow are negligence claims that are usually brought against the owner of the property, and others that have care, custody or control over the premises.
Every case is different and presents a unique set of circumstances. A personal injury lawyer will need to review the particular circumstances in order to determine if there is evidence of negligence that caused the injury.
