The Deadlines for Filing a Lawsuit in New York

When considering legal action for your injuries, it is important to be aware of the deadline that pertains to your right to sue, also known as the statute of limitations.

Per New York Civil Practice Law and Rules (CVP) §214, you generally have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit in New York. Per New York Estates, Powers and Trusts Law (EPT) §5-4.1, you generally have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In either case, there may be exceptions that could significantly shorten your deadline, such as when bringing a lawsuit against a municipality.

Failing to act within your statute of limitations means that you may lose your right to sue and your ability to recover compensation at a trial. For details on what specific deadlines pertain to your case, contact our firm today.
