Understanding Occupiers Liability Claims in Toronto, Brampton, Scarborough, GTA and Ontario

Usually an occupier’s liability claim refers to any accident occurring due to hazardous conditions or negligent maintenance in property owned by an individual other than the victim. It is the responsibility of premise owners in Toronto, Brampton, Scarborough, GTA and Ontario to take all the necessary care to ensure that people entering their premises stay reasonably safe when on their premises. Various Occupiers’ Liability accidents may include, but are not limited to, ‘slip and fall’ accidents that are caused due to:

  • Staircases constructed improperly
  • Snow and ice
  • Uneven floors
  • Wet floors
  • Broken or worn staircases
  • Poor lighting
  • Broken or worn steps or sidewalks
  • Worn carpeting

It is important to resort to prompt attention and legal assistance in case of such claims. There are many times when evidence for establishing negligence on the part of the property owner cannot be readily available. Moreover, there are circumstances in which the victim is required to provide notice of the claim to the owner of the property within a few days of the accident or else the victim’s claim may be barred forever. Those are few reasons why it is necessary to contact a lawyer immediately after the accident.

Slip-and-Fall Injury Victim’s Compensation in Toronto, Brampton, Scarborough, GTA and Ontario:

The Occupier’s Liability Act states that a premise occupier “owes a duty to take such care as in all the circumstances of the case is reasonable to see that persons entering on the premises, and the property brought on the premises by those persons are reasonably safe while on the premises.”

If and when the occupier (i.e. owner of a building) fails to abide by the above law, and any visitor to his/her premises suffers serious injury, compensation can be claimed by the injured victim for emotional trauma, lost wages as well as other losses incurred by the victim.

Lawyer for Assistance:

As a victim in occupier’s liability case, like slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident, you have to face many complex legal issues that have to be resolved properly. Such complexities include questions involving the occupier’s identity, the occupier’s reasonableness in efforts to ensure safe conditions, the visitor’s assumption of risks and other complicated issues. Only with the help of an experienced lawyer can you answer such questions and determine whether you can take a legal course of action and receive compensation from the occupier.

If you’re a victim of slip-and-fall accident due to negligence on part of a property owner, take immediate legal action to obtain reimbursement your losses, both financial and emotional. Make sure that you hire our occupiers liability lawyers in Toronto, Brampton, Scarborough, GTA and Ontario for successful compensation of your Occupier’s Liability Claims.
