Canmore Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

Slip and fall accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at any time. Regardless of age, physical condition, or level of personal caution, the negligence of property owners and occupiers can lead to dangerous, hazardous conditions that could lead to injury-causing slips and falls on their premises.

The hazards that frequently lead to serious slip and fall accidents might sound innocent enough, but if not properly maintained or repaired by the property’s occupier, these commonplace features of commercial or residential premises could lead to severe, life-changing accidents. Maintenance hazards that commonly cause unexpected slip and fall accidents include:

  • Recently mopped floors
  • Poorly maintained staircases
  • Broken or missing handrails
  • Debris or objects on the floor or ground
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Loose floorboards
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Loose carpeting
  • And more

Additionally, many slip and fall accidents responsible for injuries requiring visits to the emergency room are caused by icy, snowy conditions. As it happens, dozens of falls caused by extreme cold conditions lead to injuries requiring hospitalization each winter.

When the person or organization responsible for a property’s upkeep fails to perform routine safety inspections, conduct regular maintenance touch-ups, address hazardous conditions on-site, or warn visitors about potential risks, slips and falls can occur. And depending on the conditions of both the accident victim and the accident scene, these slips and falls can lead to serious injuries.

Our Canmore slip and fall accident lawyers believe that no one should be forced to incur financial losses because of someone else’s negligence. In accordance with the provincial  Occupiers’ Liability Act, the parties and/or entities that own, oversee, maintain, or control access to a commercial or residential property have a responsibility to actively reduce the risks to human health on their premises. If a property’s “occupier” fails to uphold the duty of common care they are responsible to provide to their premises’ lawful visitors and an injury-causing accident ensues, the at-fault occupier could be considered negligent. As a result, they could be responsible for financially compensating visitors who have been injured on their premises.

Our slip and fall accident lawyers serving Canmore believe that no one should be forced to pay for someone else’s errors, omissions, or lack of judgment. To learn how we may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve after being injured in a slip and fall accident, contact us today.
