Manhattan Personal Injury Attorneys
If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to suffer the sum of financial damages that may arise, such as hospital bills, lost wages due to an inability to work, lost future wages, and so forth. As such, it is essential to hold the party (or parties) responsible and, consequently, experience justice for the wrongs inflicted upon you. With the aid of the top Manhattan personal injury attorneys, you can file a lawsuit for the injury you suffered, take the negligent party to court, and receive awards for resulting damages.

What to Do After an Injury
After an injury, whether you were riding a bicycle or working, for example, the first thing you should always do is seek medical attention. Remember, the statute of limitations (the time period in which you can file a lawsuit) for a personal injury case in New York State is three years from the actual date of the accident/personal injury. However:
- If your claim involves New York City authorities, a Notice must be filed within 90 days and a lawsuit within one year and 90 days.
- Lawsuits for wrongful death cases must be filed within two years from date of death.
- Medical malpractice lawsuits must be filed within two years and six months.
There is no rush to file the lawsuit, and you should always take care of your health and well-being following an accident. At the same time, however, you can begin building a case against the negligent party by keeping careful records of the accident, medical bills and diagnoses, and any other information.
