Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers for Unsafe Conditions Claims

Under the Occupier’s Liability Act in Ontario, owners and occupiers are held responsible for any damages arising out of injuries which occurred due to unsafe conditions on their property. Property owners, maintenance contractors, and tenants must make reasonable efforts to maintain a safe environment for visitors or guests.

There are many types of unsafe conditions which may give rise to an accident: ice and snow build-up on a walkway, a broken handrail on a staircase, insufficient lighting in a parking lot, or a spill on a supermarket floor, to list just a few. The personal injury lawyers at Tierney Stauffer LLP have years of experience handling all matters of occupier’s liability claims including injuries caused by unsafe conditions.

We understand the ins and outs of both the medical and legal systems and are uniquely positioned to guide our clients through the often-overwhelming process of returning to normal following an accident.

Types of Properties Where Unsafe Condition Accidents May Occur

Serious accidents can happen anywhere. Unsafe conditions claims can be brought against the owners and occupiers of the following types of properties:

  • Homes;
  • Apartment buildings;
  • Roads and sidewalks;
  • Retail or grocery stores;
  • Shopping malls;
  • Restaurants and bars; and
  • Public transit stations or vehicles.

In these types of cases, it may be difficult to determine who is at fault.  More than one person or party may be responsible for improper or negligent maintenance. If you have been injured, the best thing to do is to consult with a skilled personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to help determine the responsible parties, identify the best course of action, and seek the compensation needed to help you move forward.

Whether you were injured tripping over an uneven sidewalk, or you fell on a spill in the grocery store, the knowledgeable and compassionate team at Tierney Stauffer LLP can provide you with the necessary guidance to help you navigate your rights, aid in your recovery, and help you obtain the best possible outcome. Our firm has been assisting injured individuals and obtaining excellent results for over three decades, and we have extensive experience in all major areas of personal injury.
