In order to bring a slip-and-fall claim, there must be some negligence on the part of the property owner or other party, which caused the fall and injury. In Ontario, slip-and-fall cases are vigorously defended. Often, the slip-and-fall lawyers acting on behalf of the property owner will attempt to defend by claiming that the property owner acted reasonably under the circumstances. Another common defence to Ontario trip-and-fall lawsuits is that the injured party bears responsibility for the incident. Determining whether you have a viable slip-and-fall case against a property owner in Ontario will usually require some analysis by an experienced slip-and-fall lawyer.
If you believe that you may have a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall claim due to ice or snow, slippery floors, uneven surfaces, or other defective conditions, you should not delay in speaking with an Ontario slip-and-fall lawyer. Early preservation of evidence and, in particular, site conditions is important.
