Article Summary: 

In this article, Clintar, a Canadian landscaping and snow removal company, discusses the liability issues that arise from slip and fall accidents on commercial and residential properties. The article explains that property owners have a legal duty of care to keep their premises safe and free of hazards, such as ice and snow buildup. If a slip and fall accident occurs due to a hazardous condition that the property owner knew or should have known about, they may be held liable for any resulting injuries or damages. The article advises property owners to take proactive measures to prevent slip and fall accidents, such as regular snow removal and de-icing, and to document their efforts in case of a liability claim. It also recommends seeking legal guidance from a lawyer who specializes in personal injury law if a slip and fall accident does occur.
