From office buildings to shopping centres to private homes, property owners and occupiers have the duty to keep their properties in good condition and take precautions to prevent potential injury to lawful visitors. Individuals who slip, trip or fall due to unmarked slippery surfaces, icy sidewalks, broken handrails, poorly maintained stairs or crumbling pavement may be entitled to seek compensation for their injuries from property owners.
Slip, trip and fall injuries may seem like minor accidents, but we at Stevenson Whelton LLP know that they can cause serious problems. In many cases, the full effects of the injury are not fully known immediately after the accident. When you work with our firm, we will thoroughly investigate your accident to seek compensation for all your short- and long-term needs.
"We appreciate your hard work and the time you took to answer our questions regarding legal issues. Financial compensation does not cure the pain but does help to cover past and future health expenses. Never did I predict that 'brief three-second fall' would have long-lasting effects. For this reason I am glad that we secured your services." — K. and M., Burlington, Ontario*
Experienced Lawyers for Premises Liability Claims in Oakville, Toronto, Vaughan and Oshawa
Besides slip-and-fall accidents, property-related injury claims, called premises liability claims, include injuries caused by:
- Poor lighting
- Inadequate security
- Falling objects
- Hazardous or toxic conditions
Making a personal injury claim for slip-and-fall injuries and other premises liability issues is often time-sensitive, meaning you may only file a claim within a certain period of time after the accident. We will act quickly to understand your situation and take the appropriate steps accordingly. We seek to obtain maximum compensation to which you are entitled for medical expenses, future treatment or rehabilitation costs, lost wages and pain and suffering.
