What is the statute of limitations on a personal injury claim in NYC?
The standard time limit to file a personal injury lawsuit in New York City is currently three years. This means within 3 years of an injury caused by an accident you must file a lawsuit or you lose any rights to take the matter to court.
There are certain rare instances when the time limit may be preserved such as if the injured party was incapacitated or an injury was latent, occurring at a later date. But most of the time this will not apply.
