How Long Do I Have To File a Brain Injury Lawsuit?

If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to be compensated for your pain and suffering. You don’t have long to file a brain injury lawsuit in New York. There are strict time limits to filing a claim and holding the other party responsible.

Typically, like any other negligence case, brain injury cases of this nature have to be brought within three years. Again, if there’s a defendant who is a municipality, those time periods could change. But barring that, three years is going to be the proper time to bring this claim.
