What is the Statute of Limitations in Texas for Slip and Fall Claims?
In Texas, the statute of limitations for slip and fall claims is two years from the accident. If you try to bring your case after the two years statute of limitations, you can not receive any awards. Slip and fall accidents follows the shared fault rule, meaning you are allowed to collect compensation, even if you are partially at fault for your injuries. If you are more than 50 percent to blame, you can not receive compensation. If you are 50 percent or less responsible for your injuries, then you will receive a lowered compensation. For example, if you were at a grocery store and you fell in a puddle that wasn't cleaned and you were on the phone, and you were awarded $20,000 but the court found out that it was 10% your fault, then you will be awarded $18,000.
