Most people do not have notice that a slip and fall accident is about to occur. This kind of accident can happen anywhere and at anytime. In many cases, people are not seriously injured when they slip and fall, but other times the injuries can be severe. Often, an accident is simply an accident and could not have been prevented. However, other times negligence plays a big role in falling or slipping on another person's property.
First of all, you should know that most shopping excursions only result in painful injuries to your wallet, leaving your body pretty much intact. With that said, shopping occasionally exposes Ontario residents to certain hazards that could cause bodily harm. Before you break out a suit of armor to protect yourself while buying milk, you should probably learn more about these hazards. This way, you can practice due caution without going overboard.
Suffering injuries in a slip-and-fall accident can range from inconvenient to catastrophic. You might think you have an open-and-shut case if you suffered these injuries on someone else's property, but caution may be your best friend. Never assume that things will go your way or you may lose out on the entitlements you deserve in a personal injury claim. In most cases, you will benefit from the guidance of a lawyer.
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.
