When should I file a personal injury claim?

According to the New York statute of limitations (N.Y. Civ. Prac. Law & Rules § 214-c), you have three years from the date of discovery to file a personal injury claim. This could be from the date your accident occurred, or from the date that your injuries became evident, which may have been much later. Your best option would be to file a claim immediately after your accident to ensure that your claim is not denied due to the statue of limitations.
