This video features Jeffrey S. Antin, a Personal Injury attorney based in New York.
What's the time limit to file a personal injury lawsuit in New York? We're asking New York City lawyer Jeff Antin for this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.
The general time limit is three years, but there are exceptions to that, most important is if there's a municipality involved. City New York or New York City agency, then it's a year and 90 days, but then it gets more complicated than that because there's a pre-suit requirement, that is you have to file a notice of claim within 90 days. So it's really not fair to say that the statute of limitations is this long in New York, 'cause you can get tripped up or trapped by not being aware of these other time limits.
