Injuries caused by ice, spilled liquid, uneven pavement, fallen goods, poor lighting, neglected premises, and the like are no accident. Owners of private homes, apartments, condos, businesses, malls, grocery stores, and municipalities have a legal duty to make sure that people are safe. If your injuries were caused by someone’s neglect, then you may bring a claim for compensation.
There are strict timelines. For some property owners, such as municipalities, notice of your intention to sue must be done within 10 days of being injured. Otherwise, the courts may bar you from starting a lawsuit. If you have a reasonable explanation for missing the 10-day notice period, the courts may extend that deadline in your case.
After notice has been given, all claims must be started within 2 years of the incident.
