Question: How long do I have to file a slip and fall claim in Washington?

Answer:

The other day we received a phone call from a potential client asking us how long they had to file a claim for a slip and fall case. These are some of the things you need to be aware of in Washington. Although you have three years to file a claim, you do not want to wait that long. You need to contact a lawyer as soon as possible so that they can interview witnesses. If you wait the three years, you may have problems down the road. The lawyer may contact witnesses later on and the witnesses may have forgotten a lot of the things that have happened.Slip and Fall Statute of LimitationsAlso, the potential defendants who may be responsible for your slip and fall accident might not be able to be located and the lawsuit cannot be started within that three-year period. That would leave you without recovery. If you have any questions about the time limits involved and what you should do right away, you should contact us and we can better advise you.
