The Statute of Limitations in Your Case
It is important to know that New York imposes a deadline on many types of civil actions. For personal injury lawsuits, a general three-year statute of limitations applies, per New York Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214. Some circumstances could require you to act sooner, such as a lawsuit against a municipality or when pursuing a wrongful death claim. This could be relevant in your case if a city or state-operated vehicle caused your collision.
If you do not act within the legal deadlines for your case, you may forfeit your right to recover compensation via a lawsuit, even with strong evidence on your side. A representative of Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. can discuss what specific deadlines pertain to your case when you call.
