Welcome to SlipFall.ca – Welcome to our website. Mehran “Mark” Yazdani is an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help slip and fall accident victims in Burlington claim compensation for their injuries.
Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall accidents should not be taken lightly. Many short term injuries can lead to serious long term injuries, such as arthritis and bulging disks. Victims can suffer from broken bones, a strained back and even brain injuries. The pain and suffering, plus the debilitating effects of long term injuries, can take a toll on your life.
Slip and Fall Areas
People can slip/trip and fall almost anywhere: on stairwells, office lobby floors, super market floors, and icy and snowy parking lots.
Owners of Property
Landlords, home owners and business operators have an obligation to keep their floor surfaces clean, dry, and free of hazards. This can apply to a lobby floor, a parking lot, stairwells and escalators, a supermarket floor, side walks and common areas.
For you to claim compensation, it is important to identify who is the owner of the property, or the owner of the business, where you slipped and fell. If you have slipped and fallen on property owned by a municipality, and this includes sidewalks, public parks and government offices, then you may also have a claim for compensation.
Injuries from slip and fall accidents will require medical treatment. Sometimes, long term medical treatment and rehabilitation will be needed. Slip and fall accident victims can claim for their costs of medical treatment and rehabilitation, as well as pain and suffering.
If your injuries are serious, you may not be able to return to work and can thus claim for loss of income. In many cases, you will not be able to follow your normal routine, which may include exercise, sports and other leisurely activities. All of this will be factored into your claim for compensation.
What To Do If You Slip and Fall
If you were in a slip and fall accident, we recommend that you take photos of the area where you fell as soon as possible.
