Slip and fall. Property owners are required to keep their premises safe for people entering them. If you slip and fall because of ice, snow, poor lighting or poorly maintained parking lots and sidewalks, the owner can be held responsible.
Animal attacks. Dog bites and other animal attacks can cause significant injury and damage. If you get bitten by a dog in Ontario, the owner of the animal is responsible, even if the animal was startled or has never shown aggression.
Shopping-related injuries. You may not think about it when you’re out shopping, but retail establishments are more dangerous than you think. Unsecured items can fall from shelves, injuring your head and neck, you could slip and fall on an unmarked wet patch and you could even be hurt if the store is overcrowded.
Pedestrian and cyclist accidents. Drivers sometimes forget that they share the road with others. Walking, jogging or riding your bike on the street can leave you vulnerable to cars and trucks, even if you stick to the sidewalk. If something happens, a personal injury lawyer will make sure that you get the compensation you deserve.
