Slip And Fall Laws In Monrovia
In Monrovia, there is a statute of limitations for slip and fall cases. This means that you have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit after your accident. The statute of limitations for slip and fall cases in Monrovia is two years from the accident date. If you do not file a lawsuit within this time frame, you may lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries.
Additionally, Monrovia follows the rule of comparative negligence regarding slip and fall cases. This means that if you are found to be partially at fault for your accident, your compensation may be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you.
For example, if you were in a grocery store and slipped on a wet floor, but you were also texting on your phone and not paying attention to your surroundings, you may be found to be 25% at fault for the accident. If your damages are $10,000, your compensation would be reduced by 25%, or $2,500, leaving you with $7,500.
It is important to note that if you are found to be more than 50% at fault for your accident, you may not be able to recover any compensation at all.
