Injured on my job

Just a brief overview... About two years ago I was leaving my place of employment to go to the bank for my employer and fell down six stairs over material that was left out because of construction in one of the offices downstairs unrelated to my company. I endured a lot of pain and however I never pursued anything legally. I paid for treatment through my husbands health insurance for a fractured right ankle, a displaced right shoulder, and laceration to my left arm 4 inches long and 1/2 an inch deep. Im a still receiving physical therapy for my shoulder. Paying for this treatment has now become a problem because my husband was laid off. Is it too late to pursue something legally what options do I have?

The statute of limitations on a New York personal injury negligence claim is generally 3 years. The period to file a worker's compensation claim is considerably less. However, if a person tripped over materials that were left by a contractor, sub-contractor, the landlord, or any other entity than their employer, their claim against that entity would be subject to the longer statute of limitations under the personal injury law of New York. Please call my office to discuss this matter in further detail. Also, plesae remember that this is just a general description of New York negligence and personal injury law. It is not specific legal advice and is not intended to create an attorney client relationship, without further consultation.
