“Slip and fall” is a term for personal injury cases that arise when injury is caused during a slip and fall as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Slip and fall accidents and trip and fall accidents are the most common types of “premises liability” cases.

To win a premises liability claim, your slip and fall lawyer has to prove either that the defendant created the hazard that led to the accident or that the defendant knew or should have known about the danger and should have had it removed or repaired.

This can often be difficult to prove, since establishing when a given hazard first appeared can be challenging. That is why the attorneys at Bliven Law Firm, P.C. aggressively represents victims of slip and fall accidents. Our goal is to help our clients receive full compensation for their injuries.

The section below will have a different color background to stand out as a call to action.

Slip and Fall Statute of Limitations

A statute of limitations is a law that determines how long parties involved have to file a lawsuit. In Montana, the statute of limitations generally allows a personal injury case to be filed within 3 years of the date of the injury.

If you suffered a serious injury in a slip or trip and fall accident, you may have a personal injury case against the negligent party. It is important that you meet your deadline to file a claim. Missing this deadline may mean losing your ability to file a lawsuit for your slip and fall accident forever.
