Servicing Peterborough and all of Ontario

When winter weather descends on Peterborough you can either feel as though you’re walking through a winter wonderland or trudging through mounds of snow and slush while avoiding slick ice.

You may not be too concerned about who is obliged for removing snow and ice wherever you’re walking, as long as it gets cleared, but if you suffer a bad slip and fall in Peterborough due to another person’s negligent actions or inaction, determining who is responsible becomes very important.

There are different deadlines to file a claim for compensation and damages for a personal injury if the negligent party is a municipality or private business or individual. If the claim is against the latter, you have up to two years to file notice; but according to provisions in the Municipal Act, you must give notice of your intent to sue a city such as Peterborough within 10 days of the incident. A delay or missed deadline could be a very costly mistake.

To ensure your rights are protected, it’s advisable to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible after a slip, trip or fall. Howie, Sacks and Henry’s trusted slip and fall lawyers have developed expertise in this area of law and are ready to help you with you claim in Peterborough. Consistently named one of the top personal injury law firms in the country, and with a strong reputation as a client-centred firm, you can count on the HSH team to be attentive to your needs, well informed about your options, and compassionate and caring during this difficult time.

An HSH slip and fall lawyer will be pleased to meet with you in your own home in the Peterborough area or at a nearby consultation office. After listening to your story, we’ll outline your options, provide our advice, and schedule and facilitate any medical evaluations or appointments you may need for your case or rehabilitation.

Whether your fall was caused by icy or slippery sidewalks, unmarked hazards in businesses such as wet floors or bunched carpets, a dimly-lit stairwell, or poorly maintained paths or recreational facilities, our team can investigate the circumstances and help determine if you may be eligible to make a claim.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip, trip or fall, HSH’s trusted slip and fall lawyers are ready to be on your side and by your side in Peterborough. We can’t change the past or take away the pain and suffering you’ve felt, but we can work with you to ensure better days are ahead.
