Fighting for Compensation on Your Behalf
After being injured in an accident, the medical bills will start to add up and you may not be able to return to work for a while.

What Is the Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Lawsuits?
In New York, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is three years, starting on the date of the injury.
Every state in the U.S. has a time limit, or statute of limitations, within which you can file a lawsuit if you sustained injuries in an accident. If you miss this window, it is unlikely the court will hear your case and you will ultimately lose your chance to obtain compensation for your injuries.
Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim
In New York, you can obtain economic and non-economic damages for your injuries.
Below is some of what compensation can encompass in New York:
- Medical expenses, including hospital stays, medication, surgery, physical therapy, and necessary medical aids
- Loss of future wages and earning capabilities
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and mental anguish, including the psychological impact of your injuries and how they may impact your daily life
- Loss of consortium, which refers to a situation where a family member cannot provide the same level of love, companionship, emotional support, or sexual relations as they did prior to the accident
Additionally, in New York, it is possible to obtain punitive damages in some cases. Punitive damages are only awarded in situations where the defendant acted in a particularly malicious or reprehensible manner, resulting in harm.
