What law governs slip and falls in Ontario?
In Ontario, there is a special set of rules that govern liability for property owners who invite others onto their land. The Occupier’s Liability Act mandates that the occupier of a premises owes a duty of care to ensure that the property is reasonably safe for those who enter. This duty includes slips and falls that result from poor care of the premises but may also extend to other injuries that occur on the premises.
The full compensation of any and all medical expenses caused by the accident is the first and foremost goal of our local slip and fall lawyers. Tremendous medical, personal, and legal expense can develop in the aftermath of a tripping or falling incident, and reimbursement for those expenses and your pain and suffering is possible.
