Whether because of ice, snow, water, uneven pavement, poor lighting or some other hazard, slip, trip and fall injuries occur with great regularity in Canada. They are often the direct result of negligence on the part of private or public property owners who can be held accountable for any injuries sustained. These injuries are often serious and can include broken bones, concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and spinal cord injuries (SPI), amongst others.
When an injury does occur, seek medical attention immediately so that you can not only begin your road to recovery but also get documentation outlining the damages caused by the accident. It is also imperative that you make careful note of what you were doing immediately before the slip and fall, how the incident transpired, and what hazards caused the fall. Speaking with a qualified legal representative will help determine whether you are eligible to receive benefits from an at-fault property owner. Starting this process quickly is important so that the information and other facts are still fresh and that your lawyer can provide you with the help, care, and support that you deserve.
