Personal Injury Laws That May Affect Your Lawsuit
Understanding and navigating the personal injury system in New York can be complex and multifaceted. Finding your way through these laws and understanding how they impact your case can be a challenge. Our team will take the time to help you understand the following laws that may govern your lawsuit:
- New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 generally limits the time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit.
- New York Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1 generally limits the time you have to file a wrongful death lawsuit for the loss of a loved one.
Along with these statutes of limitations, there are other deadlines that should be considered. Important deadlines can include acting quickly to canvas for witness statements, retrieve dashcam or surveillance video, and more. The sooner our team is involved, the greater our opportunity will be to build the strongest case possible for you. Additional laws you should be aware of include the following:
- New York Consolidated Laws § 5102 defines the conditions that must be met to bring a lawsuit for injuries arising out of a car, truck or bus accident.
- New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 1411 will permit you to recover damages to the extent the harm you have suffered was caused by an at-fault party, even if you also contributed, to some degree, to the happening of the accident.
In addition to specific personal injury laws governing timelines and recoverable damages, there are also laws that govern your specific type of injury. For example, if your injury involved a dog bite, our legal team will take time to help you become familiar with dog bite laws that may have an impact on your lawsuit.
Similarly, there might be circumstances specific to your lawsuit that alter the statute of limitations. We will make sure you understand any stipulations in your case that may impact your filing deadline.
