We Ensure Your Lawsuit is Filed on Time
When you seek compensation for your injured loved one, the state imposes a time limit on filing the lawsuit. Our team members make it a top priority to comply with New York’s statutory filing deadlines:
- The personal injury statute of limitations as defined by New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules (CVP) §214
- The wrongful death statute of limitations as defined by Estates, Powers & Trusts (EPT) §5-4.1
Failing to comply with the correct time limit could mean you are unable to legally compel the at-fault party to compensate you. Involving our team early helps limit this risk and gives us time to locate witnesses, photos, videos, and other evidence. The timely intervention will also give us the opportunity to build the strongest possible case for compensation.
