Personal Injury

Personal injury law is, at its core, a relatively simple concept. It’s the avenue by which an individual can pursue compensation if injured by another party. But the most important factor pertaining to any personal injury case is the legal concept of “negligence”. Negligence is a failure to exercise the care that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in a given set of circumstances. Essentially it’s what people typically refer to as carelessness, and it’s what your attorney needs to prove to win a personal injury case.

What Should I do if I Am Harmed Due to Another Person’s Negligence?

Seek out an attorney. People who have suffered serious injuries as a result of an accident often experience significant medical, financial, and personal challenges due to those accidents. Unlike some people’s perceptions about personal injury suits, they’re typically not about “revenge” or anything petty like that. In most cases, the victim has incurred serious costs, lost a sizeable amount of income, or will require expensive treatment, and simply must recover money to avoid even more serious consequences. Retaining the right attorney to pursue this compensation in a timely fashion is the smartest thing you can do to protect your quality of life.

What’s the statute of limitations for a personal injury case in New York State?

This is actually a more complicated question than it appears to be. The statute of limitations can be anywhere from 1 to 3 years depending on the nature of a case, and even longer if the victim was a minor, or based on other factors. The general rule of thumb is to take action as soon as possible though. The earlier you retain an attorney, the better chance the attorney will have of gathering evidence and putting together a strong case. If you have a potential case and you don’t know if it’s beyond the statute of limitations, then give us a call. There’s no faster way to get the right answer as to the statute of limitations on a particular type of case than to speak with an attorney who knows all the statutes and technicalities by heart.
