How long do you have to file a personal injury claim?

You may feel that you're not the type to sue or that you'll feel better eventually after your accident. However, it's not fair for you or your family to suffer because of someone else's negligence. Who else is going to compensate you for missed work or piled up medical bills?

Personal injury laws exist for a reason: to help people injured due to someone's negligence recover or maintain as good of a quality of life as possible.

The importance of acting swiftly

While you may wonder if a lawsuit is worth your time, waiting too long could decide this for you. As a result, you may be unable to receive compensation for your injuries. You have three years from the date of your accident to pursue damages through a lawsuit in New York.

Overthinking or waiting too long to file a claim could keep you from receiving the financial compensation that you deserve.

What is negligence?

Negligence occurs when someone, like a property owner, fails to act with a level of care that fulfills their legal duty to another person. For negligence to have occurred, someone must breach that duty to cause an injury and the injured person must provide proof.

This could mean a wet floor with no warning signs that leads to a slipping accident or a light fixture that falls on someone.

You deserve to get back on your feet

Injuries stemming from negligence can have serious and sometimes lifelong consequences. Personal injury laws are there to help you get back on your feet. If you're debating filing a personal injury claim for your accident, you must act urgently before the statute of limitations runs out.
