Slip and Fall Cases

There are many situations where someone has failed to keep their property safe and you have injured yourself as a result. For example, floors in public buildings that are shiny, polished and very dangerous at the best of times, but certainly in cold or wet weather. Cracked or broken sidewalks. Broken stairs, slippery steps or ice covered parking lots to name a few. If you have been the victim of a fall in someone’s building or elsewhere, it may well be that they were negligent. If you have been injured there are several things you should do immediately to protect your future:

  • Put the at fault party on notice and if the incident happened on city property, you must write to the city within seven days of the slip or fall and advice them of the accident and include your name, date of birth, and date, time and location of the incident.
  • Take pictures of the scene.
  • Measure the trip ledge or the hole.
  • Get the contact details of any witnesses.
  • Keep your footwear and do not use it again.
  • Save any documents that prove you were at the location of the incident.
