Servicing Leamington and all of Ontario

Falls are the single highest contributor to emergency room visits and hospitalizations in Ontario. Whether it’s a slip, trip, loss of balance or other reason you find yourself on the ground, a bad fall can cause serious injury and disability and recovery can be long and difficult.

Most falls are considered to be entirely preventable injuries. Fall prevention strategies in hospitals, nursing homes and senior residences recognize that older people and people with illnesses tend to be more likely to experience falls. In public places, ensuring sidewalks and paths are clean, clear and well-lit also helps to reduce fall-related injuries.

Despite our best efforts, accidents still do happen. Sometimes slips and falls are unfortunate accidents where no one is blame. But if another person’s negligence has caused you to slip and fall or contributed to an injury you’ve sustained, you may be entitled to compensation and damages for your pain, suffering and losses.

Howie, Sacks and Henry’s experienced slip and fall lawyers can help you if you’ve been injured on public property or at a private business or establishment in the Leamington area. Our knowledgeable lawyers will investigate whether your injury was caused or aggravated by negligence on the part of a person or organization responsible for upkeep of a public place or private premises.

Slip and fall injuries can occur:

  • on icy streets, sidewalks or parking lots that have not been adequately maintained
  • within establishments where floors are left wet, or are hazardous in other ways, and not properly advertised
  • within nursing homes and hospitals where staff have not followed protocols when transferring patients or residents
  • in municipal parks and other facilities that have not been maintained.

An HSH slip and fall lawyer will be happy to arrange to meet with you in your own home in the Leamington area or at a nearby consultation office to discuss your case and provide trusted legal advice on your options and how you may want to proceed. Our team will also be pleased to facilitate tests, evaluations and rehabilitative therapies you may need to diagnose and treat your injuries.

Accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere at anytime. But if another person’s negligence caused or contributed to your injuries, you should know you have the right to seek compensation for the harm they have caused. With Howie, Sacks and Henry’s slip and fall lawyers on your side and by your side in Leamington, you can be certain you’ll have a strong legal advocate to seek the financial resources you’ll need for your recovery.
