Proving Negligence in a Slip and Fall Accident

Slip and fall accident cases, also known as trip and fall cases, are time sensitive. Evidence of negligence can be removed or repaired before an investigation of the scene is launched. One of the more challenging aspects of slip and fall accident cases is proving that it was caused by negligence. Because of this, it is crucial that you seek the help of an experienced slip and fall accident lawyer as soon as you are able. Only a Canadian slip and fall lawyer well versed in personal injury law can properly investigate your case. A prompt and thorough investigation of the scene may be the only way to prove negligence. The longer you wait, the less likely you are to receive proper compensation for your injuries and lost wages. A property owner may be quick to hide evidence of their carelessness but a good attorney knows that there are many ways to prove negligence.

No matter how your slip and fall accident occurred, we can make the law work for you. Property owners are responsible for the maintenance of their property. Period. Any public areas must be free of hazards.

Slip and fall accident hazards include:

  • Debris in walkways
  • Irregular walking surfaces
  • Unexpected changes in slope
  • Damaged flooring
  • Improper cleaning (spills or improperly applied cleaners or wax)
  • Staircases (poor lighting, loose flooring, absent or broken handrails, irregular steps)
  • Weather related hazards (ice and rain water)
