New York Drunk Driving Car Accidents can Cause Serious Injuries

From fractures (broken bones) to catastrophic brain and spine injuries, car accidents caused by drunk drivers often result in serious injuries. That is why it’s important for you to focus on recovering from injuries while we help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Statute of Limitations on a Drunk Driving Accident Claim

It is in your best interest to immediately start the investigation into whether you have a valid personal injury claim after an accident.

In addition, there are time limits called “statutes of limitations” on how long you have to file a personal injury lawsuit in New York. You must bring a formal lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires or you will be forever barred from doing so.

The statute of limitations for your claim depends on who hit you – a private vehicle or State/Municipal vehicle. The statute of limitations can be as short as one (1) year from the date of the accident or as long as three (3) years from the date of accident. You may also be required to file a “Notice of Claim” with the municipality within ninety (90) days of the incident.

Contact Kammholz Law to determine whether you have a claim and the applicable statute of limitations. We are here to help!

Paying For Your Personal Injury Case

We Get Paid Only When You Get Paid

There’s no cost to find out whether you have a case. There is also no upfront costs to pursue a case, should you have one. If there is a successful outcome, we receive our costs and a percentage of what you receive called a contingency fee. In New York, the contingency fee for drunk driving cases is one-third (33.3%) of the total damages paid. Percentage is calculated on the net amount after expenses and disbursements are deducted.
