Accidents will happen on occasion, because it is impossible to completely remove the element of risk from everyday life. However, every property owner in Ontario has a duty of care to maintain his or her premises in a reasonable manner. Failure to do so can lead to accidents and leave the property owner open to a lawsuit. A person who suffers injuries on another person's property may not be certain what he or she should do next. Here are a few tips to help an accident victim help him or herself.

After the accident occurs, the victim may panic, but if possible, it is best to remain calm and assess the situation. Look around and see if the cause of the accident is identifiable. Obvious hazards include protruding objects, loose railings, debris on a walkway and so on. Take note of the hazard and even take pictures if a camera or phone is available. Documenting the situation as it was at the time of the accident can help later, especially if the property owner removes the hazard after the fact.

It is of paramount importance that an accident victim seeks treatment for injuries immediately. Document this process too, with pictures and copies of records and receipts. Take note of the names of anyone spoken to about the accident, including witnesses, police officers, doctors and insurers.

Before going ahead with a lawsuit, it is first necessary to determine if the owner of the premises may be financially responsible. A knowledgeable Ontario personal injury lawyer can help with this important step. If you, a friend or a family member are victims of someone's negligence and suffering from injuries and losses, contact an attorney to know your rights and what steps you should be taking in order to protect your rights for the future.
