Establishing Negligence Is Key

Premises-related accidents can happen at someone's home, an office building, a shopping mall, an industrial plant or any other property. The causes are numerous and varied, including:

  • Wet floors, spills or debris
  • Trip hazards in high-traffic areas
  • Poorly lit conditions
  • Uncleared snow or ice
  • Falling objects

The property's occupier has a legal duty to keep the premises safe and free of unreasonable risk for visitors. After an accident, your injuries may be obvious, but the success of the claim will be largely dependent on whether you have proof to support the occupier's negligence. With decades of experience on our side, we know which questions to ask, how to conduct a thorough investigation and what it takes to make a strong case.

You may be able to seek compensation for medical expenses, loss of income and other impacts, both short and long term. Unlike motor vehicle accident claims, trip-and-fall claims are less regulated and are not restricted by the same threshold for damages involving pain and suffering. Once we discuss the details of your case, we can give you an idea of the value of your claim and whether it is worth your while to pursue.
