I was involved in a car accident
in New York last may. A drunk driver hit my car while I was stopped at a stop sign. He was going so fast that there was no way he was going to be able to stop in time. The driver fled the scene and was later apprehended by the police. I have had a back injury since the accident. Even though the accident was just this last year am I still able to go after the driver? I have ongoing medical bills resulting from the accident. What are my rights?

Generally, the statute of limitations on a New York car accident lawsuit is three years. Different statutes of limitations apply to medical malpractice lawsuits, wrongful death lawsuits and other types of personal injury claims. As always, please feel free to contact me directly so that we can discuss this matter in further detail.
