Slip & Fall Injuries
Slip and fall accidents should not be downplayed. Many people in Oakville who have been in slip and fall accidents suffer from injuries ranging from torn ligaments to broken bones. Many injuries become long term, requiring years of medical treatment and rehabilitation therapy. Some people’s injuries can include spinal stenosis or even carpel tunnel syndrome.
If you have missed work as a result of your slip and fall injury, you can make a claim for loss of wages or income. You can also claim for medical treatment and rehabilitation costs, as well as pain suffering.
For some people, their injuries can be so severe that they are unable to return to their normal routine and enjoy the recreational activities they once pursued. This loss will be factored into your compensation claim.
Other forms of compensation include:
- Out of pocket costs and expenses
- Legal costs
- Future medical needs
- Retroactive, pre-judgment interest on your award or judgment
How Oakville Slip and Fall Accidents Happen
Slip and falls can happen very quickly and without warning. A person can be doing his shopping in a mall, or can be walking through a supermarket aisle, and suddenly, he slips on a wet, slick floor. Many Oakville residents slip on ice and snow on a parking lot, leaves on a sidewalk, debris or obstacles left on a stairwell.
Business and home owners have a legal obligation to ensure their floors, common areas and reception areas are free and clear of any obstacles that might trigger a person to slip and fall.
