Lots of people suffer injuries in slip and fall accidents. Most of these accidents take place on sidewalks, in streets, inside residential buildings or inside commercial buildings. Many are injured in these accidents due to their own fault. However, some people suffer injuries because of unexpected circumstances or negligence of the property owner.  Knowing the statute of limitations for this type of case is something experienced slip and fall accident attorneys in the Bronx will help you with.

Understanding the statute of limitations:

What exactly is a statute of limitations? It is simply the period of time within which you can file a lawsuit against a potentially liable party in your slip and fall accident. A couple of important things to know is if your accident occurred in a private building or property that is not a municipally owned property, the statute of limitations in New York is a time frame of three years.

Meaning, you have three years to file a lawsuit against the party you believe is responsible for your accident. This time period begins from the date of the accident.

When filing a lawsuit against a municipal defendant/government authority, you have only ninety days to file a Notice of Claim.  Then the statute of limitations period is typically one year and ninety days.  This can vary in certain situations so you should discuss this with your attorney. 

In case you or someone you know is planning to file a lawsuit against a private or municipal government authority whom you believe is responsible for your slip and fall accident, the Law Firm of Vaughn, Weber & Prakope, PLLC, a group of experienced slip and fall accident attorneys in the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, New York, Suffolk County, Nassau County, Long Island, and Staten Island is the place to start.

Slip and fall accidents can be dangerous and affect the lives of victims and their families, in many ways. One such mishap claimed a life in Walmart’s Jonesville store.

More Details:

The man who died is James R. Secord. He experienced a slip and fall accident in Walmart’s Jonesville-based store on May 27th, 2018. The accident occurred while James was exiting his vehicle in Walmart’s automotive service department at 701 Olds Street.

How did this accident happen?

James R. Secord, 67 from North Adams, stepped out of his car after parking in the Automotive Service Department. There was a concrete defect that was the reason for his slip and fall accident. This fall caused multiple injuries to Secord. The list of injuries includes a broken wrist, fractured ribs, blood clots and even problems like contusions and abrasions.

James succumbed to fatal injuries he suffered in this slip and fall accident on June 1st, 2018 and has left behind Pamala Secord, 48, his wife.

What Else?

Pamala Secord filed a lawsuit against Walmart on August 17th, 2018 stating everything mentioned above. Since Walmart is a nationwide firm, the lawsuit was moved to federal court on October 17th, 2018. Mrs. Secord has filed this lawsuit, seeking compensation for her husband’s death due to the slip and fall accident at Walmart’s Jonesville store.

Any other reason for filing a lawsuit?

There seems to be one more reason Mrs. Secord has filed this lawsuit against Walmart. Apparently, the company has failed to maintain the property and is still showing negligence in repairing the damaged concrete that led to the slip and fall death of James R. Secord, says the lawsuit filed by Mrs. Secord.
