Filing Deadlines Can Affect Your Case
According to NY CVP § 214, you can generally file a lawsuit up to three years after the collision. However, some situations could shorten the deadline. For example, if your case involves suing the city, state, or county, the statute of limitations is much shorter.
The statute of limitations listed above also does not apply to wrongful death lawsuits. If a loved one was killed in a truck collision, you generally have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit, according to NY EPT § 5-4.1.
The longer you wait to file, the less time you will have to build a strong case. In order to get the most out of our services, consider contacting our firm as soon as you can. We do not want you to miss out on financial recovery due to the statute of limitations running out.
