Slip & Falls
Slip & Falls
Were you hurt in a fall while on someone else’s property?
Serious injuries can result from a trip or slip and fall. In Ontario, the Occupiers Liability Act requires owners and those in control of premises, such as shopping malls, gyms or fitness facilities, public parks, municipal sidewalks, city streets, or private homes, take reasonable care to prevent personal injuries and see that you are safe.
Your fall may have been caused by a tripping hazard, such as a poorly placed entry rug, an oil or water spill, or ice or snow left uncleared. Your fall may have been the result of poor building design, insufficient lighting, or a failure to keep the premises clean and tidy.

“Barb’s team truly demonstrates respectful interdependence, superior intelligence, diligence and precision encapsulated in warm compassion. Their strength comes from the roots of truth and honesty and with that honesty they built support for us. When an agreement was reached at mediation, we celebrated the end of a four-year journey. At the same time, I knew I would miss the ongoing support, caring approach and cheerful competence that greeted my calls every time I had a question or concern. Have no hesitation to seek legal representation from Legate & Associates. Barb is simply the best!!!”LD
