In Bakersfield, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit stemming from a slip and fall accident is two years from the date of the accident. This means that if you were injured in a slip and fall accident on January 1, 2020, you would have until January 1, 2022 to file a lawsuit. If you don’t file your lawsuit within this time frame, you will likely be barred from doing so.
There are some exceptions to this rule, however. For example, if the person who owns the property where you fell knew about the dangerous condition that caused your fall but did nothing to fix it or warn you about it, you may have longer to file your lawsuit. Additionally, if you were injured as a result of a defective product, you may have longer to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer.

You may have a claim against the city if you were injured after tripping on a sidewalk, street, or other public property. To win your case, you will need to show that the city was aware of the dangerous condition and failed to fix it within a reasonable time. You will also need to show that your injuries were caused by the dangerous condition.
