Time limits on personal injury claims are important to understand

There are important time limits that apply to personal injury claims for damages that victims of car accidents and other types of accidents should be familiar with. Statutes of limitation are in important part of the law to understand because they establish the timelines and deadlines that apply to personal injury claims.

Statutes of limitation vary by state and can also vary by the type of civil claim that is being filed so it is important to be familiar with what the applicable statute of limitation is. In general, statutes of limitation range from 1 to 6 years in New York depending on the nature of the claim that is being filed. That clock for the statute of limitations begins when the wrong occurs or is discovered. When a victim has been wrongfully harmed by a negligent driver, they may be able to bring a claim for damages but must be aware of the statute of limitation.

It is also important to abide by statutes of limitations because if an injured victim fails to bring a claim in time, before the statute of limitations expires, the other party may request that the lawsuit be dismissed because it was filed after the statute of limitations expired. In New York state, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is 3 years. A personal injury claim for damages must be filed within 3 year of the car accident.

A personal injury claim for damages is a valuable legal protection for injured victims to consider that can help them recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional harm they have suffered. As a result, it is important to pay attention to the statute of limitations to preserve a claim for damages.
