Slip and Fall Statute of Limitations
Every state has different laws regarding personal injury lawsuits. Certain restrictions such as types of evidence, who can be held accountable for a slip and fall, and who can file a claim are often imposed. In addition, time limits, called statute of limitations, restrict the amount of time a victim has to file a claim after an accident.
