Car Accident Statute of Limitations
Watch this video to learn more about car accident statute of limitations and how long you have to file your injury claim in New York.
A lot of clients ask me, “How long do I have to file my claim if I’m injured in an accident in New York?” My answer is this: get a good lawyer. The lawyer will know exactly what to do. Depending on who the defendant is, who the guilty party is, that has a lot to do with what the statute of limitations are. Sometimes there’s a general statute of limitations, and sometimes there’s a specific statute of limitations, but you shouldn’t be the one to decide. You should have a lawyer tell you what to do and how to do it.
In my office, I don’t like the statute of limitations. When you come to me, if you’re injured, I will put your suit into case and I will file your case immediately. I do not wait or delay. I don’t care what the state says how long I have. I want to make you as much money as soon as possible. Many of my cases immediately go into suit within the first week that you hire me. It’s very important not to learn these facts – how long is this case? How long is that case? What if you’re hit by the city of New York? What if you’re hit by a bus? Is the bus private? Is the bus public? – that is just too much information for one regular person to possibly get properly done. Just hire an experienced attorney who will help you and guide you, and take good care of you and make sure you meet all the qualifications, including the statute of limitations, in pursuing your case.
