Toronto Slip and Fall Accidents Lawyers
Construction sites are home to many potential dangers. Many injuries created on construction sites are from slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents do not seem like they would be too serious, but this is not always the case. These kinds of accidents are one of the most common in North America and can range from minor to very severe, depending on the type of fall and from where. When a slip and fall accident occurs on a construction site due to negligence on the part of the property owner, they need to be held accountable for their actions.
In order to win a slip and fall accident case, you must prove at least one of a few things. In order to establish that a property owner or contractor is at fault for your accident, it must be shown that either the owner created the hazard that caused the accident, the owner was aware of the hazard and failed to fix it, or the hazard had existed long enough to where the owner should have discovered and fixed it before the accident occurred. At the Mazin & Associates, PC, we have experience working with slip and fall cases, and we know what it takes to build a case that will win.
Common Injuries due to Slip and Fall Accidents
In construction sites, many things can cause slip and fall accidents. Uneven and slippery surfaces, obstructions in walkways, or loose tools or machines can all cause someone to trip, slip, and fall. When you slip and fall, the impact of the ground is going to be painful. The severity of the injury is most likely going to depend on how far the fall is, what you land on, and your momentum going down. Common injuries caused by slip and fall accidents include the following:
- Broken bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Sprained joints and muscles
- Head and back injuries
This kind of bodily injury can cause significant limitation or disability, which often means a worker is no longer able to do the jobs they were able to do before the accident. With these kinds of injuries, you can recover damages for physical pain, mental suffering, medical expense, rehab costs, and lost income due to the inability to work.
