How long do you have to report a slip and fall?
Slip and fall cases in Kansas are typically based on a negligence claim. In such a case, there is a two year statute of limitations. This means if you do not file a lawsuit against the party that injured you within two years, you will forever be barred from doing so.
However, you should report a slip and fall as soon as possible, it is best to seek the guidance of an attorney before doing so. This is because a normal slip and fall reporting will result in disclosing information and providing a narrative about what happened. While such information will have to come out eventually, it is best to organize such information with an attorney, to limit the chance for your account of events to be misunderstood, twisted, or somehow used against you to prevent the compensation you should receive.
How long do you have to go to the doctor after a slip and fall?
You should go to the doctor as soon as possible after a slip and fall injury. Once your injuries are evaluated and a course of treatment is set out by your doctor or other medical care provider(s), you should continue that treatment plan until advised by the care provider that treatment is no longer necessary.
How long after a fall can you make a claim?
In Kansas, a slip and fall case is usually going to be the result of another party’s negligence. In such a case, Kansas law provides a two-year statute of limitations. Meaning, you must file a lawsuit against the injuring party within two years, or you will forever be barred from doing so. As with most things legal, there are some circumstances that would allow the statute of limitations to begin counting down at a time other than the injury. However, until you talk to a lawyer, you should not count on being allowed any more than two years to file a lawsuit to collect damages due to your injury.
Should I get a lawyer for a slip and fall?
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, you should speak to a lawyer. It is difficult to know the legal ramifications of the harm you experienced without consulting an attorney. Additionally, if you hire a lawyer, your lawyer can assist you in communicating with the opposing party, their insurance company, and their lawyers, so to avoid providing information or statements to the opposing party that might damage your case.
Can I sue if I slip and fall?
You can file a lawsuit against the party that injured you in a slip and fall accident. However, whether you will be successful is the more important question. You owe it to yourself to meet with an attorney to discuss the facts of your case, review the details of your accident, and analyze the medical records from your injury.
