You Must File Your Personal Injury Case Based on the Statute of Limitations in Oyster Bay

If you plan to file a personal injury lawsuit, it is in your best interest to get started right away. You must file your case based on the statute of limitations, or CVP § 214, which generally gives you three years to file your lawsuit.

When you’re filing a wrongful death case, EPT § 5-4.1 typically allows you two years to file your lawsuit. If you do not file your case on time, you could lose your chance to recover fair compensation. We recommend you reach out to us as soon as you can so we can inform you of the statute of limitations that applies to your lawsuit and help keep your case organized.

Proving Liability in Your Pedestrian Injury Case

One of the most important parts of your case is proving that another party caused your injuries. Our pedestrian  accident lawyers can help prove that one of the following parties is responsible for compensating you:

  • A distracted driver
  • A drunk driver
  • A vehicle manufacturer or maintenance worker
  • A government agency
  • A bicyclist

We cannot prove another party owes you compensation until we have established negligence. We do this by proving:

  • Duty of care: The at-fault party had a responsibility to keep you safe.
  • Breach of duty: They did not maintain their duty of care and instead acted negligently.
  • Causation: The liable party’s action or inaction is the reason you suffered an injury.
  • Damages: You suffered damages because of the at-fault party’s negligence.

Evidence We Use to Establish Pedestrian Accident Liability

Our law firm can build a case against the liable party using evidence. Some of the evidence we will use includes:

  • Photos and videos from the accident scene
  • Surveillance camera footage
  • The police report
  • Statements from eyewitnesses
  • Expert witness statements
  • Your medical records
  • Any bills, invoices, or receipts you have related to your accident costs

If you have any evidence, bring it to our personal injury lawyers. However, if you could not collect evidence at the accident scene, don’t worry. Your priority should be your recovery, and you can leave the rest of your case to us.
