Injuries from slips, trips and falls can be devastating. Every owner and occupier of a property must make sure that people are safe when they enter that property. For instance, homeowners are obliged to make sure their driveways and steps are in good repair and free of ice and snow in the winter. Similarly, store owners must make sure their floors are free of spills and slipping hazards, as well as prevent falling merchandise and ensure that aisles are well-lit. Municipalities must make sure sidewalks are clear, well-lit and safe. As with motor vehicle accidents, claims for slips, trips and falls can include claims for pain and suffering, health care expenses, home maintenance and housekeeping expenses, and past and future income loss.
