A ‘slip and fall’ is a term used by lawyers to describe a fall that was caused by someone else’s negligence. In cold weather climates like Ottawa, Kingston, and Peterborough, the fall can be a result of snow, ice, or some other slippery surface. It can also be a result of broken or uneven pavement, wet or loose flooring, or any other condition that makes the area dangerous. Injuries can be serious such as broken bones, torn ligaments and muscle damage, or even head injuries.
If you have been injured from a ‘slip and fall’ accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Ontario Injury Lawyers for your free initial consultation
