Our cities and towns provide many essential services. They build and maintain our roads and sidewalks, police our communities, and implement and oversee various laws and regulations, such as the Ontario Building Code.
In performing these functions, municipalities have a duty to use reasonable care in the circumstances. Accordingly, sidewalks and roadways must be kept in a state of reasonable repair. Likewise, building inspectors are responsible for detecting certain construction defects. Where this standard is not met, a claim will arise against the municipality.
If you have been injured or suffered damages as a result of municipal negligence, you need an experienced lawyer to fight for you. For close to ten years, I have been successfully handling municipal claims.
