As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Attorney, a lot of people who come into the office, one of the things they want to know is how long they have to file a claim in an auto accident case. The simple answer is that, in the state of New York, you have three years from the date of the accident to file that claim. Does that mean you should wait three years to file the claim? The answer to that question is no. Even though you have three years, one of the things you want to do is get in to see a lawyer right off the bat to make that determination about whether or not I have a claim, and to make sure an attorney is monitoring your medical situation and the investigation part of the accident. While you have three years to make the claim, oftentimes you don’t want to wait until the very end to file that claim.
