Time Limit for Filing an Injury Case in Westbury
Per New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214, you have limited time to file a civil lawsuit against the at-fault party. Depending upon the particular circumstances of your accident, other shorter statutes of limitations may apply. In addition to statutes of limitations, other deadlines apply to all claims and lawsuits.
Your attorney will need to compile evidence, determine the case value, and potentially, obtain expert witness testimony to establish a monetary value for your losses. Doing the careful, thorough work you deserve to build your case is time-consuming. This process may take even longer if you are in extended physical therapy, rehabilitation, or long-term medical care.
Aside from legal deadlines, cases have practical time considerations as well, most notably related to gathering as much relevant evidence as possible. Items of evidence such as surveillance and dashcam video or witness statements are best obtained as soon as possible, as delay in doing so can lead to the items becoming unavailable for a wide variety of reasons.
For the various reasons stated above and others, (for example, your peace of mind knowing that the deadlines of your case are being addressed, ) it is best to reach out to an experienced, dedicated bicycle accident lawyer as soon as you are able to do so. Rest assured, we will begin the claim process and track your progress so you don’t miss the lawsuit filing or any other deadline.
