Get started today with our Long Island personal injury FAQ below, and then contact us for the unique questions you may have about your claim.
How long do I have to file in New York?
When you’re injured, it’s important to note that you’ll have a limited time to file your claim. For New Yorkers, the time limit on Long Island injuries is only three years from the accident. While that may seem like plenty of time, don’t hesitate to act. If you fail to file a claim for your compensation on time, you could lose your chance for compensation and be barred from recovery.
I think I was partly responsible for the accident. Can I still seek compensation?
Even if you believe you were partly at fault for your injuries, it’s best not to mention this fact to your insurance company or the defendant. If you’re found partly responsible for the accident, you could lose a significant portion of the compensation you need for a full recovery.
If you’ve already indicated that you may be at fault, contact a Long Island attorney. They can help you fight back against claims of fault and protect your compensation.
Who’s responsible for my injury?
Unfortunately, injury claims can be complex. The person responsible for your injury can vary, depending on your claim type. For example, a car accident may be the responsibility of the other driver, but it could also have been caused by other factors, like a parts defect. Slip-and-fall injuries are often the responsibility of the property owner, which means you’ll need to prove that they’re the ones at fault.
If you’re not sure who caused your injuries, seek out a Long Island personal injury lawyer for help. They can review your claim and help you find the person responsible for your injuries.
