New York Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury

New York Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury

Monday, June 10th, 2013

The personal injury statute of limitations in New York varies depending on the cause of your injuries. For personal injury lawsuits involving things such as motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, and defective products, the statute of limitations is three years. In cases involving toxic exposure, you have three years from the date of discovery.

Medical malpractice lawsuits must be filed within two and a half years from the date of the incident. This can, in various circumstances, be extended up to ten years.

Wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date of death.

There are exceptions to all of these limitations. If you believe you have a personal injury claim, Bronx attorney Charles N. Rock can help you determine if you are entitled to seek compensation.

The statute of limitations may give you time to file a claim, but waiting to file gives the responsible party ammunition to use against you. You should contact Mr. Rock as soon as possible following any accident to allow him to get to work protecting your rights.

You deserve compensation for all of your damages. The sooner we can get to work on your claim, the quicker he can see that you are provided the compensation you will need to recover.

If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in an accident and you would like to speak to an injury attorney in the Bronx, please contact Charles N. Rock to schedule a free case evaluation.
