Slip and Fall Lawyer

We’re here to fight for you.

According to Ontario law, it is the responsibility of the store, other business or private property owner to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of anyone who enters their premises. Cracked or broken sidewalks, slippery steps, ice-covered parking lots, or objects on the floor suggests that someone has failed to keep the premises safe.

If you have been injured as a result of a slip and fall or trip and fall there are several things you should do immediately to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Steps for after a Slip and Fall Accident

  • Any lawsuit for a slip and fall must be filed within 60 days of the accident.
  • If the incident happened on municipal property, you must deliver written notice to the municipality within 7 days of the slip or fall. Include your name, date of birth, and date, time and the exact location of the incident.
  • Take pictures of the scene, including the hazard you slipped/tripped on, such as ice, crack or pothole, loose tile or floorboard, grease, water, torn carpet or other object.
  • Measure the trip ledge.
  • Get the contact details of any witnesses.
  • Keep the footwear you were wearing and do not use them again.
  • Save any documents that prove you were at the location of the incident.

Rob, I received the money yesterday for the settlement. I want to thank you for your help in getting it settled. I appreciate it very much. My other lawyer just wanted to drop it cause he said he couldn’t get them to come to a settlement. I am so glad David directed us to you. You have been amazing. Thanks again,


Rob Hooper was so good that I would never use any other lawyer ever again. At the initial consultation he made me feel very comfortable and understood – I didn’t feel like I was talking to a lawyer in a suit. I could write you a full page on him, he’s awesome. I’ve actually referred him to a lot of other people too.


Rob was extremely helpful and definitely went the extra mile to help me out. Rob and his staff were very compassionate towards my situation and took the load off my shoulders. He helped me get through the whole case – it was my first mediation and with Rob it was really easy. The whole process from beginning to end was very smooth and very stress-free. I’ll definitely be using him again in the future.  Thank you, Rob!


Thank you so much for all of your assistance over these past several months. You and Mr. Hooper have been such a great blessing to us. Thank you again!


Good afternoon Rob, I just want to say thank you for all your work and time in settling my claim. I know it was very difficult given the circumstances. I am glad it has come to a conclusion. Thanks again,


Very professional and personable. Kim impressed me with her knowledge of the law; she was straightforward and very clear. She worked very hard for me and was able to have my case settle. If you want the best then you definitely want to hire Kim. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for me.
