Toilet Leaks Can Lead to Slip and Falls
Without a doubt, toilet leaks can lead to slip and fall accidents. Toilet leaks can create wet floors around the toilet and around the entire restroom. Wet floors can be very slippery and cause innocent parties to slip and fall. If you or a member of your family experienced a slip and fall accident associated with a leaking toilet, you likely suffered a number of injuries.
Potential Injuries Victims Could Suffer
Some of the possible injuries that the victims of slip and fall accidents could suffer include the following:
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Hip injuries
- Pelvic injuries
- Knee injuries
- Scrapes and bruises
- Sprains and strains
Although most people can make a full recovery after a slip and fall accident, slip and fall accidents can be very dangerous. Some affected parties never make a full recovery, while others die as a result of their injuries. Regardless of the harm that you or a member of your family suffered, you should explore your legal options – you might have grounds to sue.
Slip and fall Accident
Can You Sue?
Do you have the right to sue for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered in a slip and fall accident associated with a toilet leak? Whether the incident occurred in a hotel/motel, mall, store, or restaurant, you might have grounds to sue for the harm resulting from the incident. Your right to sue is based on the concept of premise liability.
Based on premise liability, all property owners – including hotel/motel owners, restaurant owners, store owners, etc. – owe their guests a duty of care. Property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are completely safe for their guests. They must thoroughly inspect their premises to be able to identify and address the hazards present before any incident occurs. If a property owner breaches their duty of care and a dangerous condition leads to an incident, the property owner could be liable.
If victims can prove that the property owner is liable for the harm resulting from their incident, they can sue the property owner. That is, if you were injured in a toilet leak slip and fall accident, you could be eligible to pursue an injury claim. If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm immediately.

Filing Your Claim Within the Deadline
If you or a member of your family suffered a slip and fall accident due to a leaking toilet in the bathroom of a mall, supermarket, hotel/motel, or restaurant, you could be eligible to pursue a claim – as discussed above. However, all claims are subject to a deadline. A statute of limitations determines the total length of time that claimants have to file their claims; if claimants do not file their claims on time, they could lose their right to sue entirely. Because of this, it is essential that claimants have a thorough understanding of the time that they have to sue.
What deadline applies to your claim? In California, all injury claims – including toilet leak slip and fall claims – are subject to a two-year statute of limitations which gives claimants only two years to file their claims; however, it is possible for certain exceptions to the statute of limitations to apply, which could essentially pause the applicable deadline. To ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the statute of limitations that applies to your claim, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm immediately. Our slip and fall experts will help you file your claim on time.
