NYC Personal Injury Attorneys
Statewide Personal Injury Representation with Offices in Manhattan, Mineola, and Suffolk

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in New York?
In many cases, including auto accidents and premises liability incidents, you only have three years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit in the state of New York. Should an accident result in death, you will have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to bring a wrongful death claim.
You have less time if you are a victim of medical malpractice: Generally, you have only 2.5 years (30 months) from the date of the malpractice or the final date of continuous treatment that included malpractice to take legal action. Different deadlines and the discovery rule may apply in certain situations involving foreign objects being left in your body and negligent failures to diagnose cancer.
For workers’ compensation cases, you typically have two years from the date you were injured to file your claim. If you miss the pertinent deadline, you will be unable to recover compensation, so do not wait to discuss your case with our legal professionals.
What Can I Recover in a New York Personal Injury Claim?
An injury-causing accident can trigger a variety of economic and non-economic losses, some of them permanent and life-changing. Economic damages have a dollar amount attached to them, while non-economic damages have subjective value. Fortunately, New York Law allows you to potentially recover both economic and non-economic damages. There are no caps on damage recovery, and you may be able to obtain some compensation even if you were partially responsible for the accident.
A New York personal injury lawsuit can help you recover compensation for all applicable losses, including:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Reduced Earning Capacity
- Property Damage
- Rehabilitation Expenses
- Other Out-Of-Pocket Costs
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Enjoyment
- Emotional Distress
- Loss of Consortium
Our team at Raiser & Kenniff, P.C. will always fight to maximize your recovery. Our New York personal injury lawyers recognize what is at stake and will aggressively pursue an optimal outcome.
