Slip and fall cases can also be complicated based on who is liable. If you slipped and fell in a store, you may be dealing with a commercial insurance company, whereas a slip and fall on private property would mean you would need to seek compensation from a homeowner insurance policy. If your accident was on government property or a public space owned by a municipality, then there are different, complicated legal actions to pursue. And in some cases, you may opt to file a personal injury lawsuit instead or in addition to a slip and fall insurance claim.
Don't hesitate to start fighting for the compensation you deserve after a slip and fall accident.

What is the statute of limitations on a slip and fall in California?
California's statute of limitations for slip and fall accidents is generally two years. This means that you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for any injuries or damages you suffered as a result of the slip and fall.
There may be some exceptions to this two-year time limit depending on the circumstances of your case. For example, if the slip and fall accident occurred on government-owned property, there may be a shorter time limit to file a claim. Additionally, if the victim was a minor at the time of the accident, the statute of limitations may be tolled, or delayed, until they reach the age of 18.
You should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney if you are considering filing a lawsuit following a slip and fall accident, as they can advise you on the applicable statute of limitations.

When it comes to personal injury cases in California, “comparative negligence” can be involved. That means if you are deemed to share some responsibility for the accident (such as not watching your steps because you were on the phone), then this can reduce your compensation, or it can even get your claimed denied. Because this is an opening for a defendant to pass off the blame to you, it’s crucial to retain an attorney who can fight to make sure you recover the full amount of compensation you’re owed, without any unfair reduction.
How can a property owner be deemed liable for your slip and fall injuries? There are three main components to proving negligence. This would require you proving that:
- The hazard that caused you slip (whether it’s a spill, dimly lit stairs, a damaged floor, etc.), was entirely the defendant’s fault
- The defendant should have been conscious that the hazard presented a risk to others
- The defendant did not then take any sensible action to mitigate or fix the issue (such as putting up a warning sign, replacing light bulbs, performing repairs, etc.)
