Statute of Limitations on a Weather-Related Car 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.

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 weather related accidents is one-third (33.3%) of the total damages paid. Percentage is calculated on the net amount after expenses and disbursements are deducted.
