Slip and Fall? Our Toronto Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help!
Have you slipped on an icy sidewalk? Fallen on a wet floor at the market? Tripped on a rug in someone's office? Or had a heavy object fall on you in a public space? If you've been seriously hurt because of someone else's negligence, the property owner, tenant, or municipality may be liable for your injuries.
Property owners, businesses, and the government must provide visitors and patrons with a safe environment. Generally, that means their locations need to be well lit, adhere to the building code, and be free of dangerous obstacles. But proof of negligence requires a thorough understanding of federal, provincial and municipal laws. For example, in the city of Toronto, tenants are responsible for clearing hazardous snow and ice from steps, walks, driveways, and parking spaces within 24 hours of a storm, while other municipalities have different time limits (or none at all).
