Homeowner’s Liability

Under Ontario Occupiers’ Liability Act, the occupier of a premises “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”. When the occupier (such as the owner or lessor of a building) fails to do so and a visitor to the premises suffers a serious injury, the injured person can claim compensation for lost wages, emotional trauma and other losses.

In an occupiers’ liability case, such as a trip-and-fall or slip-and-fall accident, many complex legal issues must be resolved. These include questions involving the identity of the occupier, the reasonableness of the occupier’s efforts to maintain safe conditions, the assumption of risks by the visitor and others. Only an experienced lawyer can answer these questions and determine if an injured visitor has a legal course of action against the occupier.
