When Should I Speak to a Personal Injury Attorney?
You should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after you have been injured as a result of another person’s negligence. Taking immediate action is essential in personal injury cases because of the statutes of limitations. Statutes of limitations are the laws that limit the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim.
Generally, the statute of limitation for personal injury cases in New York is 3 years from the date of the accident that caused your injury. In medical malpractice cases, you have 2 years and 6 months from the date of the treatment or the end of continuous treatment provided by the doctor or entity you intend to sue for your injury. Wrongful death cases must be within 2 years from the death of the victim.
