Statute of Limitations for Filing a Claim Against the MTA
If you or someone you love has been injured on city property or riding public transit in New York, you only have a short window of time to file a claim. Watch this video by experienced New York personal injury attorney Mark Shaevitz to learn more about the statute of limitations when filing a claim against the City of New York or the MTA.
Any claim against the City of New York or any municipality has a 90 day time limit. Because of that, it is very important to contact an attorney right away because that 90 days is much different than the three years you have for normal negligence case.
It’s also important to keep in mind that when you’re dealing with insurance companies or government agencies for your injury, they don’t always have your best interest at heart. Their goal is to either disprove liability or, if liability is unavoidable, deny responsibility for as much of your claim as possible.
An accident lawyer can help you meet any deadlines or statutes of limitations in your case. They can also provide experience and skill when negotiating with insurance companies and government agencies to maximize your settlement or damages award.
