Did you slip and fall on the property of a private homeowner, a business or the premises of an Ontario municipal government? Negligence on the part of property owners could make them liable for the injuries you suffered in such accidents. However, accusing property owners of failing to keep their properties free of hazards and challenging them in the court might be intimidating.

City bylaws in Ontario make clearing snow on the sidewalks adjacent to homes the responsibility of property owners. Does this responsibility also make homeowners liable for injuries suffered by victims of slips and falls on the sidewalks? An Ontario Court of Appeals says "No."

Falls are not only common causes of workplace injuries, but slip-and-fall accidents are the subject of numerous civil lawsuits every year. Individuals in Ontario who have to cope with pain and suffering after falling in a public area may find comfort knowing that they may have grounds to file a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner. Monetary damages may be claimed if the accident was caused by the negligence of a property owner, tenant or another occupier of the property.
