Not all incidents resulting in injury will give rise to a personal injury claim. The elements required to prove a personal injury claim must be present in your case. Most personal injury cases are based on negligence. To prove negligence, the victim must prove that the defendant owed them a duty of care, the duty of care was breached, the breach was the proximate cause of their injury, and they suffered actual damages as a result. In some cases like medical malpractice and auto accidents causing severe injuries, proving these elements can be a difficult task. That is why you need a personal injury attorney with an experienced and detailed eye to look at the facts of your case, conduct a thorough investigation, and compile evidence to support your claim. Every element in a negligence claim is very important because the failure to prove one element is fatal to the entire claim.
If you have suffered a personal injury as a result of another person’s negligence, you have a limited time to take action. There are statutes of limitation that limit the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim. The time you have will depend on the basis of your 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. Car accident and product liability cases also have a 3-year statute of limitation. 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.
