The statute of limitations, or deadline, for personal injury claims depends on who you are filing the claim against. In cases where you are suing another person, company or business for their actions against you, you generally have three years to file a claim. If you are making a claim against the state of New York or one of its agencies, you have 90 days from the date of the accident to file a notice of claim.
In some instances a statute of limitations can be triggered by a previously undiscovered injury. For example, some illnesses may not be diagnosed for years after exposure to a harmful product or chemical. To obtain more details regarding statutes of limitations that may apply to your case, consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
