Wet Floor Signs | Slip and Fall Claim Value
If you’ve been involved in a slip and fall accident in Washington state and there were warning signs or warning cones about the condition that caused you to slip and fall or trip and fall, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you cannot be compensated for your injuries. Where were these warning signs placed? Where were the cones placed? Were they visible to the patron in the store? It’s all fact-dependent, so don’t think that you don’t have a case just because there were warning signs or cones placed.
Wet Floor Signs | Statute of Limitations
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.
Also, 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.
