Slip-and-Fall Lawyers

We are there to help you stand up for your rights. Our lawyers will take immediate action to investigate your injury and its cause.

When you have been hurt badly on someone else’s property, whether that property is commercial, residential, or on public roads and sidewalks, you may not be at fault for your injuries. It is often the responsibility of the property owner to ensure the safety of their premises.

Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers has decade’s worth of experience as legal advocates in Toronto, Ottawa, Niagara, and across Ontario. If you’ve been hurt in an accident, let us represent you and your family.

Occupiers’ Liability Act

According to the Occupiers’ Liability Act, Ontario property owners have a duty to keep their properties safe and prevent slip-and-fall accidents.   

Examples of occupiers’ liability claims:

  • Slip-and-falls on icy sidewalks or private property, such as parking lots
  • Trips on broken stairs or poorly lit staircases
  • Hazardous materials left in highly trafficked areas
  • Falling objects
  • Store displays in dangerous areas
  • Spills or debris on store floors


Slips, trips, and fall injuries can also be caused by seasonal negligence. Ice and rain can damage concrete over time, creating cracks and uneven terrain. If the company you hired to lay down salt during the winter doesn’t show up, occupants and visitors have a higher risk of being injured. 

Property owners must hire reliable and trustworthy companies. Personal injuries, such as slip-and-fall accidents, can result as an example from cleaning crews who do not put up appropriate signage that warns passersby of recently waxed floors, for example. 

Buildings must be properly designed to meet codes and safety regulations. Solid stairs and handrails and functioning escalators and elevators provide occupants and visitors with a basic traveling method. 

The Occupiers’ Liability Act applies to various types of individuals, including: 

  • Landlords
  • Store owners
  • Hotel owners/property managers
  • Restaurant owners
  • Private homeowners


Every day, people are hurt as a result of a preventable slip and fall-related incidents. Our firm’s lawyers take immediate action to investigate your injury and its cause, so you can receive the compensation you deserve. Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers provide a free initial consultation, so contact us right away!

It is important to keep in mind that there are some slip-and-fall exceptions in the Act, such as injuries that result from criminal activity like trespassing.

Working for Ontario Families

Children are highly active and aren’t always as careful as they should be because they are still learning about the world and their personal limits. This is why property owners have a responsibility to ensure that their property is child-friendly. 

Our firm’s slip-and-fall lawyers help families whose children have been seriously injured at locations such as camps, amusement parks, swimming pools, and other recreational facilities.

Consequences of a Slip-and-Fall Accident

Slip-and-falls can be a source of major damage to your body and may result in needing to take time off from work or school. A personal injury can require many medical appointments and rehabilitation sessions. Families shouldn’t have to use their limited funds to deal with the repercussions of a preventable personal injury. Our team will help you file a claim to ensure you receive compensation and—depending on your case—long-term disability benefits.  

We welcome families to contact us for a consultation.

The Gluckstein team was there for us every step of the way after our baby’s catastrophic birth injury. At one of the most difficult times of our lives, we were reassured by our lawyers’ deep knowledge and expertise and their genuine compassion for our family. They are truly amazing, and we can’t recommend them enough!

The Jennings

The lawyers at Gluckstein were beneficial and supportive when I came to them with my case. They handled it very professionally and assertively and always had my best interests at the forefront of their actions. I am very pleased with the outcome and would recommend them to any of my friends and family.

Lindsey Dobben

We couldn’t be more satisfied with the support we got from the entire Gluckstein team following our daughter’s brain injury shortly after her birth. During a very trying time and after contacting numerous law firms with no response. Once Charles and the staff at Gluckstein took on our case, we never looked back.
