Statute of limitations for starting a legal claim
New York, like all states, has a time limit for initiating a lawsuit based on personal injury. The amount of time you have to file a case – known as a statute of limitation – depends on the type of injury, the defendant, and other factors. Personal injury claims arising from car accidents, slip and falls, and more must be filed within 3 years of the accident. However, claims against New York City have a much shorter statute of limitation — generally 1 year and 90 days from the date of the injury. Before a lawsuit can be filed against the city, a Notice of Claim must be presented within 90 days of the incident.
