New York law imposes strict statutes of limitations on all negligence, medical negligence and personal injury claims. The specific amount of time, depends on the type of case. Generally a negligence lawsuit must be filed within three years while a medical malpractice lawsuit must be filed within ten. In most cases, a rear end collision is automatically the fault of the following driver. However, if it was a minor collision and you did not suffer what the law considers to be a "serious injury" New York personal injury law limits your right to recovery would be limited to your "no fault" benefits, i.e. medical bills and lost wages up to fifty thousand dollars.
