More On Personal Injury

Our personal injury lawyers have fought thousands of claims throughout Ontario. We are experienced in pursuing benefits and compensation for such accidents and injuries as:

  • Motorcycle, truck and car accidents
  • Accidents caused by drunk drivers or distracted drivers
  • Pedestrian claims
  • Wrongful death
  • Injury to the brain and head
  • Spinal cord and herniated disc injuries
  • Whiplash and chronic pain

Another very common cause of personal injury is a slip and fall on another persons property, also known as premises or occupier’s liability cases.  Often in a premises liability/slip-and-fall case, there is some question as to who is responsible for the injuries and whether the responsible party did anything wrong.

There can be a number of different parties responsible for this type of injury, including:

  • Property owners: The owner of the property has a certain responsibility for making sure that the property is maintained in such a way as to minimize the possibility of injury.
  • Renters: Often a renter of a property has the same responsibilities as the owner, especially if they run a business on the premises.
  • Managers: The manager is expected to not only make sure that the premises are kept in good repair but to ensure that employees and outside contractors also consider safety.
  • Staff: Employees are expected to follow safety regulations, but managers or owners have a responsibility to hire and supervise reliable employees.
  • Outside contractors: Snow removal, cleaning and maintenance companies may be brought into a lawsuit.

Standard of care is where we usually concentrate when proving negligence. For example, if there are no procedures in place for prompt clearing of snow or spreading of salt or sand on icy steps, or if there had been plenty of time to clear snow and the owner simply hadn’t done it, your case is likely to be stronger.

Different premises have different standards of care, depending on their uses and the likelihood of people being injured on them. On one end of the spectrum, hospitals, day cares, schools and nursing homes are expected to take safety very seriously, since they are filled with vulnerable people.

On the other end, empty lots surrounded by fences with “Do Not Enter” signs are not generally expected to make safety their top priority.

In between, there are a wide variety of types of premises, and different standards of care expected of each kind. Some are purpose-specific. For example, bars are expected to be careful about drinking, and sports arenas are expected to keep equipment and bleachers in good repair.

With years of practice backing our focus on personal injury, our lawyers have no learning curve. When you bring your case to us, we know how to proceed and what it takes to fight a solid case. We will apply our legal knowledge and experience to:

  • Spot insurer errors
  • Help you gather the right kind of supporting evidence
  • Gain any necessary referrals for medical diagnoses or expert opinions
