Slip, Trip and Falls; Whose Fault is it Anyway?!

Article Summary: 

Slip, trip, and fall incidents account for a significant number of injury hospitalizations in Canada. As the Occupier of the Common Elements, a condominium corporation holds the legal responsibility to ensure common areas are hazard-free. Negligence, determined by a court, refers to failure to exercise reasonable care. Negligence could lead to monetary compensation for injured parties. Implementing risk management strategies like contracting reputable snow removal services, promptly addressing hazardous conditions, and using warning signs can reduce the potential for slip, trip, and fall incidents and associated lawsuits against condominium corporations.
