Slip & Fall Injuries

A slip and fall injury can happen almost anywhere unexpectedly. You may not know this, but when you enter or step on someone’s property they are responsible for your safety while you are there. The Occupier’s Liability Act was created specifically for this area of the law. According to the act, the ‘occupier’ (property owner, landlord or business owner) owes a ‘duty of care’ to anyone who enters their premises.

Some of the most common causes for a slip and fall claim are the following;

  • Poor lighting
  • Uneven or poorly installed flooring
  • Uncleared ice and snow
  • Broken railings or other safety features
  • Potholes
  • Raised ledges
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Inadequate warnings signs for hazards
  • Falling merchandise in retail environments
