Experienced California Slip and Fall Attorney Serving Clients in Lakewood
Have you been hurt in a slip and fall accident in Lakewood, California? You may be able to file a personal injury claim. Lawsuits related to slip and fall accidents fall under a broader area of personal injury law known as premises liability law. In California, property owners owe a duty of care to certain people on the property. This duty of care requires the property owner to take steps to prevent injuries caused by unsafe conditions. When a property owner fails to take precautions or to warn someone on the property about a known danger, they may be liable for damages. Since slip and fall injuries often result from a hazard on the property, most slip and fall lawsuits are brought as premises liability claims.
If you recently sustained injuries in a slip and fall accident, you should learn more about filing a lawsuit by speaking with a Lakewood premises liability lawyer.

Slips and falls can result in many different types of personal injuries, according to a fact sheet from the World Health Organization (WHO). At Fisher & Talwar, we regularly assist clients whose slip, trip, and fall accidents have resulted in the following kinds of injuries:
- Broken bones, including fractured ankles, wrists, and hips;
- Sprains and strains;
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other types of head trauma; and
- Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) and other types of neck and back injuries.
Slips and falls can lead to many different injuries in addition to those mentioned above. If you got hurt in a slip and fall accident that resulted from another party’s negligence, it is important to learn more about filing a claim for compensation.
How Long Do I Have to File My Slip and Fall Lawsuit?
If you do get hurt in a slip and fall accident, it is important to pay close attention to the California statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits. The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have from the date of the injury to file your claim. Under California law, plaintiffs typically have two years from the date of the injury to seek compensation by filing a lawsuit.
As such, if your slip and fall injuries occurred, for instance, on January 1, 2017, you would have two years from that date to file a claim. If you do not file a lawsuit within that two-year period, you may lose your right to seek compensation for your losses.
