New York Statute of Limitations

Injury victims have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit, under New York’s statute of limitations. In most cases, the clock begins to run on the date the injury occurs.

Unless it is a medical malpractice claim, which victims will then only have 30 months to file. Once these time periods run out you will lose your right to pursue compensation.
