Ontario Slip and Fall lawyer, Andrew Iacobelli, can help you determine who is at fault for your slip and fall accident. If a local, provincial or federal government entity is found to be liable, different laws may apply which may affect your rights.
The injuries in a slip and fall case can be devastating. Many times, injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident can be more severe than those suffered in an auto accident. It is not uncommon for a fall to cause bone fractures or torn ligaments. Many times elderly persons suffer fractured hips in falls.
