I was walking through a dimly-lit underground parking lot and slipped in a puddle of engine oil. I broke my hip in the fall. This injury has caused me to miss many months of work. How can I recover my lost wages?
If you have missed time from work, you may be able to recover your lost wages from the owners or property managers of the parking lot. Depending on where the incident occurred, you may also be able to recover some portion of your lost wages through an automobile insurer if the injury is deemed to have been caused as a result of the user or operation of a motor vehicle. You may also be able to access disability benefits through disability insurance if you have that, or through government agencies, such as the Canada Pension Plan or the Ontario Disability Support Program.
