I have been injured in a slip and fall. What are my rights?
The Occupiers Liability Act requires that property owners and occupiers use reasonable care to maintain their property in a condition which is safe for those who enter and use it. Falls can occur as a result of snow, ice, uneven or broken pavement, pooling water, or other forms of lack of maintenance.
If you are injured as a result of a fall, there are often short timelines in which you must notify the property owner of the fall and injuries. If you are injured on property owned or controlled by a municipality, you must provide notice of that incident within 10 days to maintain your right to bring an action. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, please contact one of the personal injury lawyers at McKenzie Lake Lawyers LLP in London or Guelph, Ontario to schedule your free initial consultation.
