Statute of Limitations on Filing Injury Lawsuits in New York
New York State has time limits on how long we can wait to seek damages in a lawsuit. Generally, New York Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214 gives us up to three years to hold a property owner legally responsible after a premises liability accident on their property. However, there are exceptions to this deadline, and some of them require us to take action much sooner.
Contact us as soon as you can following your injuries. We can work with you while you pursue your workers’ compensation claim, and we will cooperate with your workers’ compensation legal team as needed.
