With our unpredictable Canadian weather, slip and fall accidents can happen at any time. On any given day, the average Canadian visits several business and stores ranging from gas stations to coffee shops, grocery stores, department stores, and professional offices.

Owners and occupiers must take reasonable steps to maintain their property, including frequent salting and snow removal in inclement weather, fixing damaged railings, and cleaning up spills in a timely manner. Many owners overlook safety in an effort to keep costs at a minimum. This cost cutting leaves consumers exposed to unsafe conditions that can result in serious injuries from slip and fall accidents.

A slip and fall accident can result in serious injuries including brain injury, spinal cord injury, fractures, bruising and other traumas. These injuries may never heal completely even with proper and immediate treatment.

In some slip and fall or trip and fall cases, there are very time sensitive notice periods. For example, if you fall on a city property, you must give proper written notice within ten (10) days to protect your right to pursue a claim. An initial investigation is also important including, in some cases, an engineering report.

Dogs are man’s best friend, but they can also cause injuries. The law is clear in Ontario that a dog owner is responsible for injuries resulting from a dog bite or attack.

Long Term Disability Benefits are intended to provide you with peace of mind and financial security when you unexpectedly find yourself unable to return to work due to an illness or disability.

Long Term Disability insurance is designed to provide a monthly income replacement benefit while you are disabled from returning to your pre-disability occupation, for the first 24 months following disability. After 24 months, often the terms of coverage change and at that point you must demonstrate you are disabled from returning to any occupation. There are some policies that provide additional coverage where you are unable to return to your own occupation even beyond that 24-month period.

Our Hamilton personal injury lawyers have experience dealing with all types of Long Term Disability claims and advocate on behalf of those who find themselves unable to return to work. When you are totally disabled, your main focus ought to be your recovery, not continually worrying about your benefits being terminated despite your efforts to prove to an insurer that you are not able to return to work.

MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE

A breach in standard health care can be difficult for many families. Mistakes can happen in medical treatment, but when physicians or other health care providers fail to adhere to the standard of care that results in injury or death, it may be a case of negligence.

Medical negligence can result in birth injuries such as, brain damage, fractures, spinal cord injuries, other permanent damage, or wrongful death. Negligent actions can include a failure to diagnose, post-operative complications, and lack of medical care. As a client of Lamont Law, your case will be reviewed by medical experts to determine its merits.
