How much time do you have to file a lawsuit in New York?
In New York, most personal injury claims based upon negligence have a statute of limitations of three (3) years from the date the injury occurred. For example, if you are involved in a car accident and sustain personal injuries you will generally have three years to file a lawsuit against the person or persons that you believe are responsible for the accident. This three-year deadline would also apply to many other types of negligence-based injury claims such as trip and falls or slip and falls. However, as noted below, the deadline to file a lawsuit may be shorter if the person or entity that caused the accident is a local or municipal government.
It is important to note that when the party being sued is a local or municipal government such as the City of New York or a local town, the statute of limitations or deadline for bringing a lawsuit is significantly shorter and there are other requirements that must be fulfilled before a lawsuit can be filed. These shorter deadlines will apply if the person that caused the accident is an employee of a local or municipal government or if the property or condition where the accident occurred is owned by a local or municipal government.
Just as with a car accident, many sidewalk accidents, such as trip and falls on defects or slip and fall accidents due to slippery conditions such as snow, ice, water or other foreign substances, is generally three (3) years if the party responsible for the accident is a private individual or entity.
Unfortunately, people are often killed due to injuries suffered in accidents. In such cases, the victim’s next of kin typically have two (2) years from the date of the death to file a wrongful death action.
The deadline for a premises liability case, such as an injury due to a dangerous condition on private property (a building, house, shopping mall, store, etc.) is typically three years from the date of injury.
A person who has been injured due to the intentional act(s) of another person (for example, an assault and battery) has one year from the date of the intentional injury-producing act to file a lawsuit.
