Common Places Where Slip-And-Fall Accidents Happen
Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere. They can lead to injuries ranging from strains and broken bones to concussions and head injuries.
Some of the most common locations for slip-and-fall accidents include:
- Parking ramps
- Grocery stores
- Bars and restaurants
- Hotels and motels
Both public and private property owners can be held accountable when their negligence causes you harm.
When Is A Property Owner Considered Negligent?
Negligence involves failure to uphold a reasonable duty of care, resulting in harm. In the case of property owners, if they failed to identify or correct a hazard in a timely manner, that may very well amount to negligence.
Proving negligence can be difficult. There are many defenses that the property owner may try to assert. With our lawyers on your side, you can rest assured that we understand the nuances of proving negligence and know how to effectively counter those defenses.
How Long Do You Have To File A Slip-And-Fall Lawsuit?
The legal deadline, or statute of limitations, for personal injury cases in California, is two years from the accident. That includes slip-and-fall cases.
It’s best to get a lawyer sooner rather than later, however. It takes time to investigate, gather evidence and build a claim, and the sooner you get started, the better your chances of a strong recovery.
