After an accident or injury in New York, you might be wondering which state laws will affect your case. In this article, we’ll provide an overview of a few New York statutes and legal principles that may come into play if you’re taking legal action after an injury – whether via an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit.
A personal injury or medical malpractice lawsuit can be very complex. The best success in New York City cases can only be assured through skilled legal representation.
In New York, the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases gives a claimant three years from the date of the injury to go to court and file a lawsuit against those responsible for the underlying accident.
Why is this law important? Basically, if you fail to get to the courthouse before this three-year window closes, the New York court system will likely refuse to hear your case at any time in the future, and your right to compensation will be lost.
