With the winter season in full effect, we are likely to see a lot of ice and snow covering our roads and sidewalks. With the ice and snow comes a season of slip and fall accidents. What if you or someone you know is injured while walking along an icy road or sidewalk? Do you know how to make a claim for a slip and fall injury?
Making A Claim for A Slip And Fall Injury
Did you know that if you do not report your accident and resulting injury to the municipality or province responsible for maintaining the road or sidewalk within ten (10) days that you will likely be unable to recover any compensation?
A recent court case ruled that some slip and fall cases can be heard after ten (10) days but if you slipped and fell in a parking lot or on a city sidewalk, it is important to be aware of this requirement.
Slip & Fall Accidents On Icy & Wet Surfaces
Whether you have slipped or tripped and fallen on an icy road or sidewalk, down the stairs while at your friend’s home, in an aisle while shopping for groceries, on a crumbling piece of asphalt in a parking lot, or at a concert venue while listening to your favourite musician, all of these scenarios may give rise to compensation for the injuries you sustain and their impact on your life.
