There are almost as many varieties of personal injury lawsuits as there are forms of personal injury and Scher Law’s lawyers are prepared to represent Plaintiffs and uninsured Defendants whatever the nature of the injury or accident. The lawyers at Scher law have represented clients with a wide range of injuries and legal disputes, including from motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall cases and from claims of negligence including against long-term care facilities. We have also represented families in wrongful death law suits.
SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS
Slip and fall accidents are a common occurrence, causing many victims serious injury and long term disability that can potentially impact them for the rest of their lives. Whether the accident was caused by an issue with maintenance, design or otherwise, victims of such accidents are entitled to reimbursement for their losses. If you or a loved one have been injured in a slip and fall accident, and believe that the fault lies in another’s hands, it is important to partner with an experienced law firm when taking the next steps in the legal process.
For years, Hugh Scher and his team at Scher Law PC have been matching their experience to earn the best results for clients. In general terms, a “slip and fall” accident refers to situations where a person is injured by slipping, or tripping, and falling due to a dangerous condition on the premises. Such falls can happen inside or outside a building, and be caused by such conditions as bad flooring, wet floors, poorly lit steps, or, in the case of outdoor accidents, weather-related or hidden hazards. An icy patch outside a door or a crack, a raised ledge or pothole can be the cause of a slip and fall in a parking lot, for instance. In Ontario, ice is often the cause of many very serious slip and fall accidents. Property owners have a “duty of care” to see that their property is reasonably safe under the circumstances. This includes ensuring that the building has no structural defects or unusual dangers that could cause an accident, both inside and out. Structural defects or unusual dangers can include: loose floor mats, rugs, or tiles; water on the floor; badly lit stairs or steps; cracks or holes in sidewalks or parking lots. Weather-related hazards may include standing water, snow and icy spots. A plaintiff or claimant also has a duty to exercise reasonable care, so if any action of yours contributed to the accident, you may share in the negligence.
CLAIMS AGAINST NURSING HOMES
Nursing home negligence can result in devastating personal injuries including chronic pain, broken bones or brain injuries. Sadly, many of these injuries have life-long consequences, and sometimes result in death. We help our clients to obtain the compensation they or their family members deserve as a result of nursing home negligence.
