Servicing Windsor and all of Ontario

We’ve probably all had at least one big slip, trip or fall.

If the accident results in a minor injury, such as bruising, we may wince at the pain, quickly get up, dust ourselves off and try to go about our day. And if a hazard such as a loose carpet, icy sidewalk, or some debris is the culprit, we may even try to fix the problem to ensure no one else suffers the same fate.

But if you sustain a serious injury from such an accident, whether it’s a broken bone, cuts and scarring, nerve damage or head trauma, it’s much more difficult to move on. You will probably need to seek medical help; you may need to miss work to rest and recover; and if the debilitating injury causes a temporary or permanent disability, you may experience great pain, suffering and loss.

While we all must take reasonable precautions to keep ourselves safe and accept responsibility if our own negligence has played a role in our fall, individuals, businesses and other entities that own, operate or maintain spaces have similar obligations. Under the Occupier’s Liability Act these individuals or groups must take measures to keep people on their properties reasonably safe from harm. If their negligent actions or inaction causes or contributes to a fall-related injury, they may be partially or wholly liable for damages to compensate you for your losses.

Some examples of negligence causing slips or falls include:

  • failure of a municipality to properly maintain sidewalks, streets, public facilities or recreational areas
  • businesses that do not remove or draw attention to hazards on their property (leaving wet, slippery floors without caution signs; poorly-lit stairwells; objects that obstruct walkways and paths)
  • hospitals, nursing homes and other care facilities failing to apply fail prevention protocols that lead to injuries among patients or residents

If you or a loved one has sustained an injury from one of these or another similar type of accident and you believe another person’s negligence caused or contributed to the injury, Howie, Sacks and Henry is ready to help you in Windsor.
