How long do I have to file a slip and fall claim in California?
We had a client come in who was seriously injured as the result of a slip and fall at a grocery store. The question that he had for us was fairly simple. The question was, “How long do I have to file my claim against the landowner on whose property I slipped and fell?” The general answer is, you have two years from the date of the incident in which to bring your claim and initiate what we call litigation. If you should slip and fall on city property or on some sort of governmental entity grounds, the time limit in which to bring that claim is shortened to six months. It’s important, be it a six-month statute or a two-year statute, that you do not wait until the end to bring the claim and you seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
