Where Do People Slip and Fall?
Slip and fall accidents can happen almost anywhere. A person might be climbing a set of stairs, or walking through the lobby of a commercial building, and then without warning, slip on a wet surface. You might be crossing a parking lot, or visiting the supermarket, and slip on an uneven surface.
Every year, countless people in Hamilton slip on ice or snow on a parking lot, wet floors, and obstacles on stairwells.
Property Owners Have A Duty
Owners of businesses, homes, and parking lots in Hamilton have a duty to keep the floors and grounds safe for people to walk on. This means clearing any snow or ice on the ground, mopping up spilt liquids, and keeping the floor clear of debris and obstacles.
