You Have a Limited Time to File a Suffolk County Car Accident Lawsuit
It is crucial to comply with New York’s car accident statute of limitations. There is a limited time to file a personal injury lawsuit under New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules (CVP) §214. Other, shorter deadlines apply to cases involving wrongful death and to cases where a government agency is an at-fault party. h
Failing to meet these strict time limits can result in the loss of your eligibility for compensation. In addition, the best time to collect evidence is as soon after the event as possible. For these reasons, we advise you to discuss your legal options with our team as soon as you can.

- Driving under the influence

Determining Fault in Your Suffolk County Car Accident Case
New York is a no-fault insurance state, which means that the initial source of compensation for certain damages will most likely be your insurance provider. However, severe car accidents often lead to life-altering damages that may exceed your maximum allowable coverage. In this case, we will identify the at-fault party and fight for the compensation that you deserve to recover from them.
Our legal team will prove fault in your Suffolk County car accident case by collecting evidence to demonstrate the following elements:
- Duty of Care: The responsible party held a legal duty of care for your safety and wellbeing.
- Breach of Duty: The responsible party breached that duty through his or her negligence.
- Causation: The at-fault party’s negligent actions caused your accident.
- Damages: You suffered injuries and other damages.
By establishing these four elements, we will determine who is liable for your damages and fight for the compensation you deserve.
