The statute of limitations is the deadline for filing the necessary papers to start a lawsuit.
If the lawsuit is not started before the statute of limitations expires, claims will not be heard in court and you have no rights to any compensation.
Statutes of limitations can be as short as one year. Some statutes of limitations are as long as 6 years.
In general, the statute of limitations for a negligence case in New York is three years.
