NYC Personal Injury News

Are you up to date on recent news developments regarding NYC personal injury cases, laws and regulations? If you’re involved in any kind of injury resulting from someone else’s carelessness or because of ill-cared-for property, or even an injury at your workplace, contact your personal injury lawyer NYC for advice. Injuries happen every day in the city. Dog bites, car accidents, slips and falls, are all more common than one may think. Be informed and aware of your rights for any personal injury scenario.

Time Limits

The experience of a personal injury lawyer is essential if you’ve been injured in any accident involving a vehicle, a construction site, or even in a pedestrian incident on city property in any of the boroughs.

Attorneys at Greenstein & Milbauer LLP want you to know that there are time limits for claiming an injury lawsuit in the state of New York.  The statute of limitations depends on the type of personal injury you need to file. In New York, the general statute of limitations for filing most claims is three years from the date of the occurrence or injury.

Are you Current on the Laws Regarding Personal Injury Claims?

Being aware of the latest news in regard to personal injury legislation is also important when it comes to shared fault, especially no-fault laws regarding car accidents. For example, the no-fault law states that in the event a personal injury occurs as a result of a car accident, the injured individual may be limited in recovery compensation options. Unless you meet the criteria for a “serious injury” definition, you may have to collect from your own insurance company before you file a case.

Are you up to date on news regarding who can be sued in the event of a dog bite injury? It’s not always that cut and dry, and proof of negligence is the foundation of any personal injury claim. Attorneys Greenstein & Milbauer are focused on informing the public regarding personal injury limitations and obligations.
