Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents happen every day throughout Burlington and the Niagara region. These falls can occur in shopping malls, on icy pavement or sidewalks, or in restaurants or office buildings. They can be caused by a multitude of factors that range from slippery floors and uneven staircases, open holes on lawns and pavements, or unsafe carpets and floors. When these accidents do occur they can cause painful injuries, or in the worst cases, even death.
Many people who suffer personal injuries are unaware of their rights, and as a result they often don't get the compensation that they deserve. If you are injured in a slip and fall accident (or a trip and fall accident), hiring one of our expert personal injury lawyers is extremely important. We can offer you crucial legal advice and help you understand how to proceed with the recovery of damages from the person who caused you injury. It is a terrible situation when your health suffers as a result of an injury; your situation is even worse if you are unable to work and suffer financial hardship during your recovery. Unfortunately, many people suffer in silence because they have no idea as to their rights under the law.
After suffering an injury due to a slip and fall accident, it is necessary to ask yourself certain questions. What caused you to slip and fall?
