Slip and Falls
If you are injured on another's property by negligence of another, you may be entitled to damages. When filing a slip and fall claim against the responsible party or parties, there are certain procedural matters of which you should be aware. That is when you should contact Ostovich & Associates in Wichita Falls, Texas.
Limitation on Filing
Statutes of limitation, which limits the amount of time one has to bring a personal injury action exist for every jurisdiction. Generally, the state of Texas allows potential litigants two years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit. If you were injured on public property, most states require that you give notice to the appropriate governmental entity sometimes within as little as 30 days from the date of premises liability injury. However, there are even more limits on claims against the government.
If you do not notice or institute your legal action within the time required, you lose your ability to recover. Consequently, it is very imperative to contact a Wichita Falls, Texas slip and fall attorney at Ostovich & Associates as soon as you are injured to protect your rights.
