Slip & Fall Injuries
I have been injured in a slip and fall. What are my rights?
If you are injured as a result of a fall, there are often short timelines in which you must notify the property owner of the fall and injuries. If you are injured on property owned or controlled by a municipality, you must provide notice of that incident within 10 days to maintain your right to bring an action.
The Occupiers Liability Act requires that property owners and occupiers use reasonable care to maintain their property in a condition which is safe for those who enter and use it. Falls can occur as a result of snow, ice, uneven or broken pavement, pooling water, or other forms of lack of maintenance.
