Slip and Fall Lawyer Toronto – Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers
Trip and Fall Lawyers
If you are on someone else’s property and have been injured as a result of a dangerous condition or negligent conduct on the property by the land owner, occupier or business proprietor or a municipality, they may be liable for your injuries.
A slip and fall or trip and fall is a generic term for an injury which occurs when someone falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. These falls might have occurred as a result of ice, water, or snow, as well as changes in a stairwell, sidewalk or flooring, or as a result of poor lighting, a hidden hazard, such as a gap.
It is important to note that unlike some other accident benefits claims, there are no deductibles for slip and fall claims.
Do you know what to do after a slip and fall accident? If you have been hurt as a result of a slip and fall accident, please contact one of our lawyers immediately to ensure that your claim is within the Statute of Limitations and your rights are fully protected.
For over 40 years we have been serving clients in Toronto and across the GTA with their slip and fall claims. From ice laden sidewalks that create tumultuous walking conditions to commercial shopping centres that neglect regular maintenance, there are hundreds of scenarios that create dangerous conditions in which you can be hurt. If you find yourself recovering from such a scenario, then you need to contact one of our professional slip and fall lawyers and get them working on your case right away.
Slip and Falls are Negligence of the Property Owner
There are no excuses for not providing patrons and visitors with a safe and secure environment. That means everything from the exterior entrance to the core interior shopping area needs to be handicap accessible, free of dangerous obstacles, well lit and in a general sense, ‘safe’. Specifically, these commercial shopping areas and residential homes with public spaces (such as a driveway or sidewalk) must abide to modern building codes and practices that are designed to protect citizens. Even during construction or renovations, there are safety guidelines that must be followed to section off work zones, dangerous areas and foreign obstacles.
Owners of such properties must provide safety measures to ensure the average citizen can physically maneuver around their complex. A slip and fall lawyer helps protect civilians when private property owners fail to maintain their buildings, walkways and entranceways. If you have recently hurt yourself on someone else’s property, it’s important to get in contact with one of our many experienced slip and fall lawyers right away to understand what measures can be taken on your behalf. Public spaces run by municipalities, retail stores and private commercial shopping centres are designed to be safe environments for patrons and clients to enjoy their shops and services.
There are time limits in which you have to file a slip and fall claim, and generally speaking, the sooner you act the better chances you have of getting the results you want. We will help you through the process of filing a slip and fall claim and guide you through the legal paperwork that must be supported as well. You don’t get a second chance to get compensated after an accident, so get reliable help as soon as possible.
I suffered some nasty slip and fall injuries during the fall of 2013, and had seen the name Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers over the internet, so I decided to call there for assistance. That was a decision I am so happy to have made. From the beginning, my lawyer, Erik Joffe was respectful, available, attentive, knowledgeable, resourceful, professional, gave great advice, and kept me fully informed throughout the process. Most importantly, Erik managed to achieve surprisingly excellent results at the settlement meeting, precluding any need to go to court.
My dealings with everybody else I encountered at Neinstein were likewise easeful and accommodating, particularly with Kate Rawson, Erik’s assistant, who was a delight and very helpful to me. Michelle Kudlats was kind enough to see me on my final visit, in Erik’s absence, and again I found her too to be personable, professional and accommodating.
In summary, I don’t have enough good things to say about my experience with Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers as a client, and I will highly recommend this firm to everyone one in future, especially Mr. Erik Joffe. Thank you all so very much!M.K.

Understanding the Insurance Claims Process
The insurance claims process is often time-consuming and complex. Insurance companies will assess every minute detail of the events leading up to accident to ascertain fault. As a victim, you must submit to medical examinations and intense scrutiny of your injuries. These will be accompanied by meetings with legal counsel for the insurance company. These are known as Examinations for Discovery, or ‘depositions.’
