How Long You Have to File an Injury Lawsuit in New York
We may be able to resolve your case through an insurance settlement. That way, you can avoid going to court. Yet, it’s important to know New York’s civil statute of limitations.
Consider the following:
- Most injury claimants have three years to file their lawsuits, per CPLR § 214. This applies to collision claimants, for example.
- Medical malpractice claimants usually have two years and six months to file their lawsuits, per CPLR § 214-A.
- Wrongful death claimants usually have two years to file their lawsuits, per EPTL § 5-4.1.
Some factors may shorten or extend your filing date. For instance, if you’re suing the government, you could have as little as 90 days to file.
Missing the Deadline Forfeits Your Right to Sue
The statute of limitations sets how long you have to file your lawsuit. The courts don’t want to hear cases that have missed the deadline. If you file after your deadline, the court will likely dismiss it with prejudice, giving you few (if any) financial recovery options.
Our team can review your situation and abide by all necessary deadlines. However, we must learn about your case first.
We’re Ready to Seek These Losses After You Get Hurt
Compensation in your case may account for:
- Income-related losses, including tips and bonuses
- Present and anticipated healthcare costs
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of parental guidance and household services
- Funeral expenses
We will pursue every dime you’re owed, whether through a claim or lawsuit. You may qualify for other losses than those listed here.
Our Lawyers Will Prove Your Case’s Required Elements
To recover damages, we must prove negligence. This process involves showing:
The Other Party Owed You a Legal Duty of Care
First, we must prove that another party had an obligation to keep you safe. Examples include:
- A landlord must maintain a safe and habitable environment for tenants and their guests.
- A healthcare professional must uphold their field’s accepted standard of medical care.
- A motorist has a legal duty to obey all traffic laws and operate their vehicle safely.
These examples illustrate the obligations that people have toward one another.
The Other Party Violated Their Duty of Care
We must show that although the other party owed you a duty of care, they didn’t uphold it. For example, if a motorist speeds, they breach their duty of care. If a doctor fails to diagnose a life-threatening condition, this also violates their legal obligation.
The Other Party Caused Your Injuries
We must prove that your injuries stemmed from the other party’s actions. We’ll use evidence to support this factor, including your medical records, testimony, and security camera footage.
You Incurred Damages
Finally, we must show you suffered damages, such as medical bills and lost income. To establish this factor, we can use your injury-related invoices, billing statements, and receipts.
We know that proving these elements is challenging. Yet, our lawyers serving Hauppauge, NY, are determined to protect your legal rights.
We’ve Recovered Seven-Figure Settlements and Verdicts for Injured Claimants
Since 1996, we’ve secured these outcomes:
- Our client suffered serious injuries in a drunk driving crash. The liable insurance policy offered $25,000. During our investigation, we found that poor roadway conditions led to the collision. At trial, we recouped more than $2.5 million.
- Our client was a 51-year-old man who suffered back and leg injuries in a rear-end collision. The insurer offered $50,000. We took his case to trial and recovered $2.3 million.
- After falling from a ladder, our client had no idea what happened because he had lost consciousness. Previously, he’d worked with four other law firms but wasn’t pleased with their services. We filed a lawsuit and won over $1 million.
These outcomes may not reflect your case’s resolution. Yet, we hope they demonstrate our commitment.

Steps You Should Consider After Getting Hurt in Suffolk County
We want to secure the best possible outcome for you and your loved ones. We suggest doing the following:
Seeking Medical Care and Documenting Your Condition
Your health is paramount, so you should seek medical attention immediately. Also, the documentation provided by a doctor, nurse, or healthcare professional can support your case.
Referring the Insurance Company to Your Injury Lawyer
The liable insurance company isn’t on your side, and it likely doesn’t want to pay for your losses. The claims adjuster might even employ certain tactics to discredit your case, such as asking leading questions.
When the insurance representative contacts you, refer them to our legal team. We can give them the information they need to process your claim. We can also protect you from bad faith insurance practices, like unjust delays or denials.
Limiting What You Share Online
Nothing is private online, even if you have strict privacy settings. If the claims adjuster sees your posts (even old ones), they can dispute your case. During this time, you should avoid:
- Making statuses
- Sharing information about your case
- Uploading photos
- Messaging the involved parties
- Accepting friend requests
- Following the at-fault party’s social media pages
Completing Your Medical Treatment
We want you to make a full recovery. We also want to show the insurer that you did everything possible to better your condition. This involves going to physical therapy, taking your medications, and attending follow-up appointments.
If you want to discontinue treatment, ask your doctor to provide a written statement as to why. This can prevent the insurer from contesting the severity of your condition.
Weighing Your Legal Options
You have every right to partner with an attorney after getting hurt. Because we work on contingency, there’s no financial risk in hiring us. We’ll also manage all of your case obligations while you focus on what matters most: your health and family.
Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases on Long Island
We know that you likely have many questions about the financial recovery process on Long Island. We’re here to provide answers. Remember: if you ever have any questions about your case’s potential, feel free to give us a call.
What Happens If the Insurer Denies My Claim?
If the insurer denies your claim, we’ll negotiate a fair offer. This process involves presenting your case’s evidence, reviewing the liable policy, and calculating your losses. Still, if the insurer refuses to settle, we can represent you during a trial.
What’s the Value of My Injury Case in Hauppauge?
We’ll have to examine your case to determine its value. When calculating your losses, we’ll consider your:
- Working ability
- Day-to-day function
- Prognosis and diagnosis
- Healthcare expenses
- The incident’s cause
We may consult economists to learn more about your case’s value.
How Long Will It Take to Settle My Case?
Every case progresses differently. So, we don’t know how long it’ll take to settle. It could take days, weeks, or months to resolve your case. These factors may affect your case’s progression:
- The insurance company’s cooperation
- The availability of certain evidence
- Whether your damages are still evolving
- The strength of your claim or lawsuit
- The other party’s degree of fault
We will do everything possible to advance your case. While your case unfolds, we will provide you with frequent updates. That way, you’re always “in the loop.”
How do New York’s No-Fault Insurance Laws Affect My Case?
Let’s use a hypothetical example to understand how New York views fault. Suppose you’re injured in a collision. The New York Department of Financial Services requires everyone to carry personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. So, to get coverage for the basic economic losses provided by no-fault you’d file a claim with your own insurer.
Matters change if you suffered serious injuries or your damages exceed your policy limits. Then, you could file a claim with the other driver’s insurer or file a lawsuit against them. It’s a bit more complicated, but that’s the general idea.
