Complying with New York’s Statute of Limitations
When you seek compensation via a civil lawsuit in New Cassel, the state defines the time you have to file. For personal injuries, you are allowed to file a lawsuit according to the timeline New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 outlines.
If a dangerous or defective drug fatally injured a family member, you can file a wrongful death lawsuit according to the time allotted in Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1. In addition, if your dangerous or defective drug reaction was the result of medical malpractice, you can file a lawsuit within the time New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214-A allots. If you or someone you care about has been injured by a dangerous or defective drug, we urge you to consult our team immediately, so that action can be taken to ensure the statute of limitations does not expire before you file. Doing so prevents the court from dismissing the case outright based on late filing.
