Prompt Action Is Essential in Mass Transit Accident Litigation
It is essential to get legal advice about your rights as soon as possible after any bus, subway or train accident in New York State, especially if you have a potential claim against any public authority, public agency or any municipality. For instance, you may need to file an official written notice of your claim against a public authority or public agency within 90 days after you suffered the injury. If you fail to file a timely notice of claim with the correct agency, you will lose your right to sue that agency, with very limited exceptions. Additionally, the time limit to file a lawsuit against public authorities or public agencies is typically much shorter than the time limitations for private entities. You may not even realize that your claim involves a public authority, so it is best to seek legal advice as soon as possible to avoid missing any notice of claim deadlines.
