Trip, Slip & Fall Accidents In Toronto

"Slip and fall" or "trip and fall" are legal terms for when a person is injured due to a fall. When the fall is caused by avoidable, unsafe conditions at a property, the victim may be able to access compensation. A slip and fall can happen anywhere and anytime; you do not need a special relationship with the property owner or manager to be compensated for your injuries.

Reasonable Precautions

Occupier's liability laws in Canada mean that the person or entity responsible for the management of a premises must take reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of people who enter that premises. That's why you see "Wet Floor" or "Slippery Stairs" signs in stores and other public spaces. Any slip and fall lawyer Toronto will tell you that it is a common misconception that if you fall and there was a sign disclaiming danger you have no claim under the law. In fact, such warning signs are effective only to a certain degree.

Gauging The Seriousness Of A Slip & Fall

The term "slip and fall" does not accurately capture the potential severity of the injuries that these accidents can cause. Falling on ice can cause muscle tears, bruising, and sprains around the body. Fractures, especially to the hip, are a strong possibility on hard surfaces. Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and concussions, are also common. Falls on stairs or other elevated areas can cause life-threatening damage. Age is also a risk factor. An elderly person who trips and falls can suffer debilitating injuries requiring a prolonged recovery. At Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers, we understand the grave physical and financial challenges that affect elderly fall victims. That's why we pursue the maximum fair compensation in slip and fall lawsuits.

Know Your Rights

Often, slip and fall victims don't realize they are not responsible for their accident. Occupiers owe a duty of care to persons on their premises; when this duty is not met, injury victims may be entitled to compensation. However, in order to access compensation, the injury victim must prove that the occupier neglected their duty. This is where an experienced slip and fall lawyer can help. To better understand slip and fall accidents, here are a few everyday examples that can happen to anyone.

SLIPPERY FLOORS
Water, ice or debris can make floors slippery and dangerous to walk on. Occupiers must put forth a reasonable effort to ensure the spillage is cleaned up promptly.

ICY STAIRS
Icy stairs are a common problem in Canada. Public stairs should be salted and equipped with hand rails to avoid falls.

IMPEDED WALKWAYS
When a walkway in or around a public property is littered with debris, construction material, or other hazards, individuals who navigate that walkway are at risk of tripping and falling. Occupiers should ensure that hallways, sidewalks, and pathways are safe for people to walk through. Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers has represented clients in all types of slip and fall cases. Our experience allows us to provide advice and guidance throughout your legal journey, and to connect you with medical professionals during your rehabilitation. Our goal is to pave the way for a successful recovery, both through financial compensation and access to leading medical resources. Contact a respected slip and fall lawyer Toronto for mature advice, sound guidance, and seasoned legal representation. A slip and fall claim can involve sensitive discovery examinations and testy negotiations; our job is to manage these processes while you focus on recovery.

A Slip and Fall Lawyer Can Determine Liability for Your Slip and Fall Injuries

Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers has represented seriously injured Ontarians for more than 50 years. During that time, we have developed extensive experience with slip and fall cases. When you book a free, no-obligation consultation, your slip and fall attorney will listen to your story and assess the viability of your case. If we are able to determine that another party was liable for your injuries, we will happily take you on as a client. At that point, our team will do everything in its power to ensure that you are awarded the full amount of compensation that you are entitled to.

How Much Will a Slip and Fall Lawyer Cost?

At Neinstein, we do not ask our clients to pay up-front or hourly fees for the services provided by their slip and fall injury lawyer. Toronto is an expensive city, and the financial challenges faced by many residents can become overwhelming when a slip and fall injury is added to the mix. For that reason, our team works on contingency, meaning that in lieu of hourly fees your slip and fall lawyer will accept a percentage of your final settlement as payment. This percentage will be agreed upon at the beginning of our engagement. If you do not receive compensation, we don’t get paid.

How Long Does It Take to Settle a Slip and Fall Case?

Every personal injury lawsuit is unique. No two cases take the same amount of time, effort, or money. It is not unusual for many months, or even years, to pass before personal injury plaintiffs are awarded compensation. The more serious the injuries and larger the claim amount, the longer the case tends to take. However, seriously injured accident victims need financial resources to cover their expenses, and the long wait for compensation is almost always worthwhile. If you’re considering a slip and fall claim, contact us today to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with an experienced slip and fall injury attorney Toronto.

We're Here For Your Financial + Legal Recovery

 

When people are injured, most often they are unable to work and during these times, cash flow can become an enormous burden on the victim and their families. We recognize that our clients are suffering and are under enormous financial stress.

That is why we use the contingency fee arrangement. Under this arrangement, the client is not required to pay any fees or expenses unless the case is successful. If the client does not recover any monies from the lawsuit, there will be no legal fees.
