New York Accident and Injury Laws
With about 20 million New York residents (more than 8 million in New York City alone) the possibility of injury is always there in the Empire State. And while no one can go back and undo an injury, New York personal injury law provides a way for the injured to be "made whole" again. Relief for injuries typically comes in the form of monetary compensation, or "damages." The links below provide state-specific information on legal claims arising from accidents and injuries -- including laws related to the legal concept of negligence, and state laws defining the time period in which a lawsuit must be filed after an accident or injury.
