In a November 2013 trial decision, the court found in favour of the plaintiff with respect to a trip and fall on a city sidewalk.
In this case, Glenda Grayling and Kevin Grayling v. The Corporation of Haldimand County, the court found that a height difference in sidewalk slabs existed, that it was a tripping hazard, and the annual inspection missed the tripping hazard. The court found the plaintiff 50% responsible. The plaintiff was awarded $215,530 in damages, reduced to $107,765.
