You Have 3 Years to File a Car Accident Claim in New York

New York has a statute of limitations of three years for car accident cases, meaning you have three years from the date of your accident to file a claim. Failure to file your claim on time may result in dismissal and the inability to recover compensation. Time is of the essence, so request a consultation with our lawyers today.

Our Manhattan Attorneys Will Fight for You

"There are not enough good words to say about this firm...Ira Slavit is very professional and very responsive...If he could not get back to you right away, he always had one of the staff call us..but I usually spoke to him or Leonard Slavit, and they always were able to explain what I needed to know at that time. They stood up for us and did a very good job." Elena Decanio

New York Is a No-Fault State

In a no-fault state, insurance companies are responsible for covering certain expenses after an accident, regardless of who caused it. These expenses include:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Medical equipment
  • Burial/funeral costs
  • Other out-of-pocket costs

However, there are limits to the compensation you can receive, and non-monetary losses won't be covered at all. Filing a lawsuit against the at-fault party can allow you to step outside of this system and recover compensation for things like pain and suffering, but you must be able to prove the accident resulted in significant injury or medical bills above a certain dollar threshold.

When you choose Levine & Slavit, PLLC in Manhattan, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. During your free consultation with one of our lawyers, we can explore possible avenues for compensation. While insurance companies will try to minimize your settlement, our car accident lawyers will stop at nothing to get you fair compensation.

We Handle Wrongful Death Cases

If your loved one has succumbed to the injuries they sustained in a motor vehicle accident that was due to the negligence of another party, our Manhattan attorneys can help achieve financial compensation for your family. We know no amount of money can equal the value of your loved one, but we hope pursuing a wrongful death claim will help alleviate the pain of their passing.
