Servicing Sault Ste. Marie and all of Ontario

According to an Algoma Public Health report, “Algoma’s rate for ER visits for ages 55 years and older was statistically higher than the provincial rate.”

Falls are a serious public health and safety concern in Sault Ste. Marie, the Algoma region, Northern Ontario and all over the province. Although the report notes that many falls occur within the home “potential hazards in the community such as poor building design, inadequate maintenance of buildings and sidewalks, and slippery and glare producing flooring also need to be addressed.”

Everyone must take responsibility for their health, well-being and safety by taking precautions and preventative measures to avoid slips and falls. But if another person, businesses, institution or government has been negligent in their duty to keep their premises safe and you suffer a serious injury and experience significant losses, you deserve compensation.

Howie, Sacks and Henry’s slip and fall lawyers have the experience and expertise to help you in Sault Ste. Marie. Our compassionate, caring and attentive team can help you make a claim for compensation for lost income, medical expenses, or pain and suffering and seek the financial resources you’ll need to help with your recovery.

When a slip, trip or fall occurs due to icy or slippery surfaces, potholes or broken pavement, loose carpets or protruding objects, or poorly lit or maintained areas, you may sustain injuries that cause temporary or permanent disability. From broken bones, scarring, head trauma or spinal cord and nerve damage, the cost of these injuries should not be yours to bear alone.

An HSH slip and fall lawyer will gladly arrange to meet with you in your own home in the Sault Ste. Marie area or at a nearby consultation office to talk about your legal rights and options. If you choose to proceed with a claim, our helpful team will also be pleased to assist in your recovery by scheduling and facilitating your rehabilitation therapies and any tests and evaluations you’ll need for your case.
