If I was in a car accident 8 months ago, do I still have time to sue?
Question Details: I was the driver and got hit on the front left side. I have undergone several procedures and have been doing physical therapy. I have yet to find an attorney that will take my case.
The statute of limitations in NY for filing a lawsuit in a personal injury case is three years. This means you have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit for negligence against the at-fault party.
