Servicing Cobourg and all of Ontario

If you live in a community as beautiful as Cobourg, it’s easy to find yourself out walking along the tree-lined streets, enjoying parks and municipal facilities, and window shopping at local businesses. Unfortunately, if you happen to slip, trip or fall while out and about, in the blink of an eye you could sustain serious injuries. Broken bones, scarring, head trauma or nerve and spinal cord damage may cause pain, suffering and result in temporary or permanent disability.

While we all have a responsibility to be aware of our surroundings and take precautions to keep ourselves safe, other individuals, businesses, municipalities or entities such as senior’s residences or nursing homes have a similar duty to keep us reasonably safe from harm while on their property. If their negligent actions or inaction cause you harm, you may be able make a claim for compensation and damages for your pain, suffering and losses.

Some potential examples of negligence causing a slip and fall injury include:

  • A municipality failing to remove snow and ice from sidewalks in a timely manner
  • A business that leaves wet and slippery floors or other hazards on their premises without signs alerting people to these dangers
  • A nursing home or care facility that neglects to follow fall-prevention protocols designed to keep vulnerable residents and patients safe
  • Playground or recreational equipment that is left in poor repair
