Slip and Fall Lawyers Toronto
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 motor vehicle accident claims, there are no deductibles for slip and fall claims.

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.
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.

You don’t get a second chance to get compensated after an accident, so get reliable help as soon as possible.
