How much time do you have to file a lawsuit in New York?

A statute of limitations is a law that establishes a deadline for when a person has to file a lawsuit. The deadline varies depending on the type of claim you are filing and depending on who you are filing the lawsuit against. For example:

Personal Injury:

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.

Exception:

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.

Sidewalk Accidents:

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.

Wrongful Death:

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.

Premises Liability:

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.

Intentional Torts:

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.

Congratulations to attorney Ivan Rodriguez on winning a Summary Judgment motion against a municipality. Mr. Rodriguez exceptional legal acumen, meticulous preparation, and unwavering commitment to achieving the best possible outcome for clients, played a pivotal role in this victory.

Plaintiff commenced an action to recover damages for personal injuries he faced when he was struck by a town vehicle while crossing through an unmarked crosswalk.​​ Plaintiff moved for summary judgment on the basis that negligence on the part of the defendants has been clearly established, and that plaintiff is free from comparative fault in the alleged accident.

The defendants argued that summary judgment should not be granted due to the differing accounts of how the subject accident occurred. The police report and hospital records indicated that the client was riding his skateboard at the time of the accident, which would make him at least partially liable. However, at the 50-H and EBT the client stated he was holding the skateboard in his hand and was actually walking, which puts liability on the Town vehicle.

The court held that plaintiff has established his prima facie entitlement to summary judgment on the issue of defendants negligence, as it is evident that the defendant did not see the plaintiff at the time of impact.

Mr. Rodriguez won the motion, and the Town was found negligent regardless of whether plaintiff was walking or riding the skateboard.
