Statute of Limitations for a New York Slip and Fall Lawsuit
Premises liability claims are particularly time-sensitive, as evidence generally needs to be collected soon after the accident. The sooner you contact an experienced slip and fall attorney, the sooner we can assess your case and begin pursuing compensation on your behalf.
The statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is 3 years after the date of the injury. However, slip and fall victims only have one year to file a slip and fall claim against a local municipality or government entity.
