Are the consequences of a winter injury spoiling your summer fun?

Winter conditions in Ontario can cause many hazards for pedestrians on public and private property. Are you suffering the consequences of a fall on an icy and slippery area when you went shopping? Do you know that you could hold the property owner or occupier liable for your damages? Although it is your obligation to walk with reasonable care, the owners or tenants must ensure you do not encounter unanticipated hazards.

Did you slip and fall in accumulated ice or snow, or did an unattended wet spill in a store cause you to fall? Inadequate lighting or missing handrails at steps and staircases can also be hazardous, as could cracks, gaps or holes in the floor. Encountering unanticipated potholes, bumps or changes in elevation can cause tripping hazards that may lead to falls.
