How Long Do I Have to File an Injury Lawsuit in New York?

If you were injured due to someone else’s negligence in NYC, the Bronx, Brooklyn, or anywhere else in New York, you will need to take action within the applicable statute of limitations – or risk losing the right to file a lawsuit forever. In most personal injury claims in NY, there is a three-year time limit for bringing a legal action. If someone died in the accident and one of their loved ones wishes to file a wrongful death claim in connection with the loss of life, the statute of limitations in NY is just two years.

It is imperative that you speak to a qualified attorney immediately and not risk losing the opportunity to seek compensation and justice for your injuries or loss. Insurance companies are notorious for delaying the settlement negotiations in accident claims because they want to make it harder for the victim to take legal action. Do not take any chances! Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at Proner & Proner in New York today.
