I was injured in a slip and fall accident: Who is responsible?

Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents are as common in the Ontario region as they are elsewhere in Canada. Most of the time, these accidents do not cause serious injury, but occasionally they may result in broken bones, head injuries, spinal injuries and more. When injuries like these occur, victims often wonder if someone else is liable for their injuries. The question of liability is valid, as property owners have a duty to protect guests, visitors and customers from reasonable harm.

Even a simple fall can lead to brain injury

It is a fact that people all over the world fall every day, including citizens of Ontario. Most of the time, falls result in minor scrapes or no injury at all. However, sometimes a simple fall can lead to the unthinkable if you strike your head: serious injury to the brain. This is known as ABI or Acquired Brain Injury. Severe injuries to the brain are called TBI, or traumatic brain injury.

After a car accident: How to get your benefits

The aftermath of a car accident can be a chaotic time. If you were seriously injured, you will probably be in the midst of getting any required medical treatment. You may also be experiencing some emotional trauma as well. During the chaos, it can be difficult to focus on any procedural tasks you must address, but it is a crucial part of getting the benefits you are due.

Strong representation is crucial following a motorcycle accident

Motorcycles do not come equipped with all of the safety features other motor vehicles have. There are no airbags, no steel doors and no side safety features to absorb an impact. Since motorcyclists must share our Ontario roads with much larger and heavier vehicles, they also share a risk of being involved in an accident. The difference between motorcycle operators and other vehicle operators is that if an accident does occur, motorcyclists have a greater risk of suffering severe injuries.
