Servicing Brampton and all of Ontario
It only takes a matter of seconds to slip or trip, lose your balance and fall on the ground. Unfortunately, the injuries you sustain from such a fall – from broken bones, to scarring, to head trauma, to nerve damage – can last a lot longer; sometimes the resulting disability can last a lifetime.
But did you know that if you’re injured on municipal property time is of the essence? You have only 10 days from the date an accident occurs to file a claim against a municipal government for damages. It’s information that is not as widely known as it should be. One Brampton man’s slip and fall claim against the municipality was dismissed partially because he unknowingly missed the deadline to file a claim.
Consulting an experienced and knowledgeable slip and fall lawyer as quickly as possible after one of these accidents is an important step to ensure your rights are protected. As one of the country’s top personal injury firms, Howie, Sacks and Henry’s slip and fall lawyers have the expertise necessary to answer your questions, provide sound legal advice, and help you make a claim for compensation and damages in Brampton.
An HSH slip and fall lawyer will gladly arrange to meet with you in your own home in Brampton or at a nearby consultation office to ensure distance or your inability to travel won’t prevent you from accessing high quality legal representation. Whether your injury occurred on public or private property, HSH’s slip and fall lawyers can help determine whether your injury was caused or aggravated by another person’s negligent actions or inaction.
Common slip and fall accidents involving this kind of negligence may occur:
- on icy sidewalks, streets, paths, parks or parking lots that have not been adequately maintained
- on interior floors that are wet and slippery
- due to loose carpets, poorly-lit areas or from other hazards
- in care facilities where protocols used to safely move patients or residents have not been followed
Slip and fall injuries are responsible for the most emergency room visits and hospitalizations in Ontario. If another person’s negligence has contributed to your slip and fall injury, you should not have to bear the costs associated with recovery alone.
Choose an HSH slip and fall lawyer to be on your side and by your side in Brampton. As your dedicated advocate and supporter, we’ll work to access the financial resources you need and deserve as you travel down the road to recovery.
