The Statute of Limitations
Under New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214, you have limited time to file a lawsuit for your New York vacation accident injuries.

Another consideration in deciding whether to take prompt action or delay consulting with an experienced, dedicated vacation-accident lawyer, is the strength of the case. It is best to collect evidence, such as witness statements or video surveillance as soon after the accident as possible, or such evidence can become unavailable. For these reasons and others, the sooner you consult with us, the greater our opportunity to build the strongest case possible.
