How long to I have to file a claim for my auto accident case?

Return to FAQ Videos


A lot of people are surprised to find out after an automobile accident occurs they have three years in the state of New York to bring a lawsuit. Many people after the accident happened treat with a doctor for a period of time, they think they are going to get better. Maybe a year goes by and the problem that they have continue to bother them or nag them and then they’re going in for surgery. Now it’s a year and a half, two years later and they still have the opportunity to bring a claim. The statute of limitations in New York State is three years so you can always bring a claim within that time period.
