If you have been injured by slipping or falling on someone else's property as a result of someone else's carelessness, you may be eligible to receive compensation. "Slip and fall" is a generic term used to describe an injury which occurs as a result of being subject to dangerous conditions on someone else's property.
These dangerous conditions can include weather-related causes, structural changes, poor construction, debris in your way or other hazards such as poor lighting. Slip and falls can occur both inside and outside a building. In Ontario, icy conditions are often a cause of many slip and falls.
You may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, past and future income loss, health care expenses, housekeeping and home maintenance expenses, as well as compensation for your family members.
You usually have two years within which to start legal proceedings. If you were injured on city or public property, shorter time periods may apply. Contact Rochon Genova immediately for advice and a free consultation.
