Servicing Belleville and all of Ontario
Did you know the City of Belleville provides sand to its residents, free-of-charge, for use on private property to prevent slips and falls? There are no limits for homeowners – all that you need is your own shovel and pail.
The free sand program is one example of how municipalities and other institutions and organizations are getting serious about preventing falls. As the leading cause of preventable emergency room visits and hospitalizations in Ontario, it’s in everybody’s interest to ensure our streets, sidewalks, parks and all public and private properties are free of slip and trip hazards and that other dangers are clearly marked.
When people, businesses, or governments are negligent in their responsibility to keep their premises safe, falls can occur due to:
- icy or slippery floors
- unmarked potholes or broken pavement
- loose or bunched up carpets
- poorly lit areas
A bad fall can result in significant injuries including broken bones, cuts and scars, head trauma and spinal cord damage. These injuries may cause temporary or permanent disability and prevent you from working as you would normally.
If another person’s negligent actions or inaction cause or contributed to a slip and fall injury, they may be liable for providing compensation to you for your losses. This includes lost wages, medical and other expenses, and damages for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced.
