Statute of Limitations
New York State mandates that a lawsuit be filed within a specific time period. This is known as the statute of limitation. The statute of limitations is designed to put the possibly negligent party on notice of their transgressions. If you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury due to an automobile accident, medical malpractice, a slip and fall or any other cause, the law limits the time to file a personal injury lawsuit. Failure to timely and properly file a lawsuit within the applicable limitation period may bar your claim permanently. If you have been injured, contact the Law Offices of Peters and Associates, PLLC immediately.
