Like most states, New York has a statute of limitations that dictates the timetable for properly filing this type of lawsuit. In general, an injured party has three years to file from the date of the accident. However, if your loved one passed away in this type of accident, you will need for us to file a wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf – this type of case must be brought within two years from the date the injured party dies (directly due to injuries caused by the accident.
There’s still another filing deadline that may apply – if you were hit by a truck that is owned by a city or other government entity – you may be allowed even less time to file your truck accident insurance claim. Your lawyer can readily explain which deadline applies to your case during your initial consultation.
