Personal Injury - Slip and Fall, Oshawa
Property owners are required by law to keep their premises safe for visitors. If someone were to slip and fall on someone else’s property, the victim may have grounds to commence a legal claim against the property owner to seek compensation for their injuries.
Some common types and causes of slip and fall accidents include wet, icy, or slippery surfaces; uneven walking surfaces; objects and debris in walking areas; cluttered working spaces; potholes; torn or ripped carpet, broken stairs etc. Some slip and fall accidents leave the victim with serious and permanent injuries. Compensation helps cover expenses such as medical bills and lost income.
Often enough, many people walk away from a slip and fall accident with only minor bruises and scraps or some may not be injured at all. However, other people are not so lucky, sometimes sustaining severe injuries resulting from their slip and fall can be severe. Some injuries require immediate attention, such as broken/fractured bones, torn ligaments and tendons, internal bleeding, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, neck injuries etc.
