Pursuing claims relating to slip and fall accidents

On behalf of: admin | Posted in: Slip & Fall Accidents on: Thursday, June 25, 2015

A slip and fall accident can happen virtually anywhere at any time. In some situations, these incidents are nothing more than an accident and no one is to blame. In other cases, the slip and fall accident is the result of a property owner’s negligence. In cases like this, Toronto residents may be able to pursue legal claims for damages they have suffered relating to their injuries.

At Kyrlov & Company, we have extensive experience litigating on behalf of people injured in slip and fall events. We know what kind of evidence to look for at the site of an accident, and we know what kind of medical records are required to prove a property owner’s negligence relating to such an accident. If liability can be successfully demonstrated in court, then injured parties can get compensation to pay for their medical care, in addition to compensation for other kinds of damages — like pain and suffering, lost wages and lost quality of life.

Whenever injuries have happened after a slip and fall incident, it is important to remember that timing is crucial. For one, evidence of the property owner’s negligence might disappear if it was an icy sidewalk that caused the accident. Similarly, a property owner might fix a loose floorboard or a sidewalk crack that caused the accident. Timing is also crucial legally — because victims will only have a certain amount of time within which to file their claims for restitution. In all personal injury cases, statutes of limitation will bar individuals from pursuing a personal injury claim if they wait too long to file their action.
