Ontario Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Property owners are liable for ensuring that their premises are safe for all. When they fail to do so, people are frequently injured in accidents as a result. This is inexcusable, which is why our Ontario personal injury lawyer is here to help all those who’ve sustained wrongful injuries in various slip and fall accidents, including the following:

Proving Your Claim

To win financial compensation after sustaining an injury in an accident, you will have to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim. Essentially, this means that you and your lawyer will have to gather and present sufficient evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most useful forms of evidence include the following:

  • A copy of the police report filed at the scene of the accident
  • Witness statements corroborating your claim
  • If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, pictures of the unsafe property conditions that caused your accident
  • If you were injured in an auto accident, pictures of any damage to your vehicle, the other motorist’s vehicle, or any property involved in the accident
  • Medical documents/bills regarding your injury
  • Surveillance footage of your accident occurring

Recovering Compensation With The Help of an Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer

As long as we can prove that your accident was the direct result of another party’s negligence, we should recover compensation for two types of damages: economic damages and non-pecuniary damages. Economic damages will cover the cost of the following:

  • Surgeries
  • Multiple overnights in a hospital
  • Lost wages
  • In-home care
  • Rehabilitation
  • Additional out-of-pocket costs you’ve incurred as a result of your accident

On the other hand, non-pecuniary damages will seek to compensate you for the incalculable, albeit very real damages you’ve incurred as a result of your accident, including the following:

  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Emotional distress

We know that this is a difficult time, and after an injury, the last thing anyone wants to do is get caught up in the legal process. However, when you present your case to our lawyers here at Merricks Law Group you can rest assured that you are in good hands, and that we will do everything in our power to resolve your case as swiftly and effectively as possible.

Statute of Limitations in Ontario

The statute of limitations is the timeframe in which all those who’ve been wrongly injured will have to initiate a personal injury lawsuit against the liable party. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Ontario is, generally, two years, which means that if you have sustained an injury in an accident, it is critical that you do not wait any longer than two years from the date of your accident to pursue compensation from the party who caused your accident. Waiting any longer than the statute of limitations allows will, in most cases, permanently bar you from suing. Our firm is here to assist you today.
