Ottawa Slip-And-Fall Accident Lawyers

If you have been injured as a result of a slip-and-fall accident, you should not assume that it was your fault. Stores, private residences and municipalities have a responsibility to keep their premises safe. This includes taking reasonable measures to ensure that there are no hazards that could cause a serious accident to people using their property. The lawyers at Burke-Robertson LLP in Ottawa can help you to understand your rights following a slip-and-fall injury.

Taking The Next Steps Following Injury

Owners and occupiers must take reasonable steps to maintain their property. This includes quickly cleaning up spills, fixing damaged railings, and clearing snow and ice from sidewalks. A trip is often not just a trip; a serious fall can cause broken bones, orthopaedic injuries and even head trauma. These injuries can take a long time to heal, or may never heal completely.

Legal advice immediately following your slip-and-fall is important to ensure legal deadlines are met for filing an injury claim. If you have been hurt on a city sidewalk, the timelines are particularly short and strictly adhered to. Quick action is also necessary to allow for proper investigation of the scene and gathering of physical evidence such as photographs or videos.

Burke-Robertson LLP has a longstanding relationship with the Ottawa community. Established here in 1878, we have seen our city grow, our sidewalks become more congested and our shops busier. When a slip-and-fall accident happens and you are badly hurt, you deserve assistance and advocacy from a respected local law firm.
