How can I win a premises liability claim?

Find a skilled personal injury lawyer who will work to satisfy the burden of proof to recover the property owner knew of or should have known of the unsafe conditions on their property. Your lawyer will prove that there was no action taken to resolve these hazards resulting in your injuries.

In addition to finding the right lawyer, you also need to take additional action as a victim of personal injury. It is critical to document as much of the incident as possible. The steps below will help you collect the information needed:

  • Call the police and ensure the property owner knows about the accident.
  • Obtain witness contact information.
  • Photograph the dangerous conditions that caused the accident to occur.
  • Go to the hospital or a doctor and ensure your injuries are promptly treated.
  • Keep medical bills regarding the injuries you sustained

What compensation am I eligible for after being injured in an accident?

There are two different types of compensation you may be eligible for after being injured on another person’s property due to negligence, economic and noneconomic.

Economic damages include tangible expenses such as stays in hospitals, surgeries, rehabilitation, and lost wages. Noneconomic damages are intangible damages including pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life.

How soon after the accident do I have to file a premises liability claim in Toronto?

You have two years from the date of your accident to bring attention to your premises liability claim. The statute of limitations is generally two years. If you fail to file your claim within this timeframe, you could risk being barred from suing. To get started with your claim today, give our Ontario personal injury lawyer a call today.
