Must I file a personal injury lawsuit within a certain period?

Yes, there is a time limit to bring a personal injury lawsuit — this is called the Statute of Limitations. The New York Statute of limitations for personal injury cases is three years from the actual date of accident/personal injury. A Notice of claim involving municipalities and/or government authorities should be filed within 90 days and a personal injury lawsuit must be filed within 1 year and 90 days.
