Welcome to SlipFall.ca – Welcome to the website of Mark Yazdani, a Vaughan serving personal injury lawyer with over 10 years of experience in helping victims of slip and fall accidents. This website helps you understand your legal options from being in a slip and fall accident.
Home and business owners in Vaughan have a legal duty to ensure their floors are free from debris or obstacles, so that people can walk without tripping or slipping. If there are liquids that have been split on the ground, they should be mopped up, so that the surface is no longer slippery.
In winter, business owners should ensure that snow and ice have been removed from parking lots, sidewalks and common areas.
Even municipalities who own city parks should ensure that their grounds are safe to walk on.
Damages and Compensation
If you have suffered from a slip and fall accident, and your injuries are serious, you may not be able to follow your normal life routine. This might include participating in community activities, looking after dependants, or playing your favourite sport. This “loss of life enjoyment” will be considered in assessing your damages.
Your injuries might be so serious that you are unable to return to work, in which case, you may be able to claim for loss of wages. Medical costs and rehabilitation expenses may also be claimed.
Other claims can include:
- Out of pocket costs and expenses
- Legal costs
- Future medical needs
- Retroactive, pre-judgment interest on your award or judgment
