In an ideal world, our workplaces, stores and business that we frequent would always provide us a safe environment. Generally, this is the case. Unfortunately, every year, thousands of Ontario residents are injured due to unsafe or poorly maintained conditions on a property that they do not own.
Many of these mishaps occur in the Greater Hamilton, South Western Ontario Area. Premises injuries can lead to a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain, to brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or even death.
During the period of recovery from a personal injury at work, at someone else’s home or in a mall or parking lot, many victims suffer anxiety due to physical pain, lost economic opportunities and the inability to play their accustomed role within the home. These stresses can cause patients to succumb to a feeling of helplessness, especially in the face of mounting financial difficulties.
At Mackesy Smye, we provide Ontario premises accident victims with the legal counsel and representation that they need to obtain proper compensation for their injuries. Premises Accidents can include a construction accident, a pool accident, a dog attack, an elevator or escalator accident, a building fire, inadequate security or poor lighting, or being struck by falling merchandise amongst others. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal premises accident, our personal injury lawyers have the expertise to ensure that you receive the consideration that you deserve from landlords, insurance companies, commercial proprietors and municipal or provincial authorities.
Your free meeting with a Mackesy Smye premises injury specialist will bring to light all of the important details that will help us to determine the best plan for pursuing your claim. After this consultation, we will develop a strategy to secure compensation for the physical and psychological aspects of your suffering and any income earning opportunities that you may have lost, in addition to the costs of your medical treatment.
Often it is critical to act extremely quickly in these types of cases because there are steps that must be taken immediately.
