Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Injury Cases
Questions that our personal injury clients often have include:
How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?
Under New York’s statute of limitations, you typically have three years from the date of an injury to file a lawsuit against those liable for your injuries and losses. Several exceptions exist that may change how long you have to file suit in your case. A Midtown personal injury lawyer from Hach & Rose, LLP can advise you as to how long you have to file in your particular situation. However, if you file suit after the statute of limitations has expired, you run the risk that your claim will be permanently dismissed by the court for being untimely.
Do I still have a claim if I was partially responsible for causing my injuries?
Yes. In New York, personal injury claims are subject to what is called the comparative negligence rule. Under this rule, an injured person is not barred from pursuing a claim for compensation even though they share some fault for causing their own injuries. However, any settlement award or court judgment may be reduced in proportion to the percentage of fault the injured plaintiff bears for their injuries and losses.
What can I do to protect my rights after being injured?
Following an accident, you can help preserve your rights to pursue compensation by taking photos of the accident scene, seeking medical attention as soon as possible, following any treatment instructions you receive, keeping records of all expenses and lost wages that you incur, and speaking to a Midtown personal injury lawyer as soon as you can after the accident.
