After being injured in a slip and fall accident, you should know your rights. One important thing to know is the time period to sue for a slip and fall accident. The experienced personal injury attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm will work hard to get you every penny you are owed. However, due to that statute of limitations in Idaho, there is a time limit for how long you have to sue for a slip and fall accident. Receiving compensation for your injuries and making sure your medical bills get paid are a high priority for our lawyers. Frequently, insurance companies will offer you a low settlement amount to dismiss the case. It is your right to file a lawsuit in court and receive the compensation you deserve.
Idaho Statute of Limitations for a Slip and Fall Accident
It is critical for you to understand the statute of limitations in your state. Failing to know this information or not having an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to assist you could hurt your case significantly. If your case is not filed within the time window, the court will throw your case out as time-barred.
In Idaho, you have two years from the time of the slip and fall accident to file a lawsuit. This time limit does vary by state. For example, in Washington you have three years since the accident to file a lawsuit. Or in Oregon you have 10 years to file.
This important deadline does not mean your case needs to be settled within two years since the time of the slip and fall accident. The statute of limitations is a deadline in which to get your case started in the civil court system. Your case does not need to be resolved before the deadline. If your deadline is approaching, it is best to go ahead and file for a lawsuit even if talk of a settlement is still taking place. You will still be able to participate in any injury settlement negotiations and work towards getting your case resolved without having to go to court.
