Property Owner Responsibilities – Slip and fall – Ottawa Falls Lawyer
Ottawa Slip and Fall Lawyers
Every day we are retained by persons who fell in a store. Store owners may claim that it was just “an accident” and refuse to take responsibility. However, the law requires store owners to take reasonable care in protecting their customers and if they don’t they may be held liable for huge damages to the injured person. If the fall was caused by the negligence of the store owner or their employees, the injury victim can take legal action. In Ontario, this type of claim is based on the Occupiers’ Liability Act. Under this Act, owners and occupiers of property and stores must take reasonable steps to ensure safety of persons visiting their store.
Slip-and-fall claims are a common claim in Ontario. They are often vigorously defended and if injured in a fall accident, you need an experienced injury lawyer to protect your rights and interests. Our lawyers are trained to take on big insurance companies and we settle most cases.
