The Deadline on Your Personal Injury Lawsuit
Building a case for financial compensation after a car accident may be a time-consuming, complex process. Because of this, it is important to be aware of the deadlines in your case.
According to New York Civil Practice Law and Rules (CVP) §214, there is a general three-year statute of limitations on filing a personal injury lawsuit in New York. Filing your lawsuit too late could result in its immediate dismissal and may prevent you from recovering compensation for your damages.
When you work with the Morelli Law Firm on your case, we can protect your right to sue by taking action before the deadlines in your case expire. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can start working for you.
