Statute of Limitations on Filing a Fall Injury Lawsuit in New York State
We can often reach a settlement by negotiating with the insurance provider who represents the property owner in these cases. However, when this is not possible, or when the landowner is a government agency or municipality, additional steps are involved. Each of these steps has a deadline, so we need to get started as soon as possible to ensure we can meet these time limits.
If we need to take your case to trial, New York Civil Practice Law and Rules (CVP) §214 generally gives us three years from the date of your fall to begin this process. However, deadlines are much shorter when you need to sue the city, county, state government, or other municipal entity. Further, wrongful death actions carry their own limitations.
