Ben Crump Law, PLLC Understands How New York Personal Injury Cases Work
A New York personal injury lawyer from Ben Crump Law, PLLC may be able to help you prevent suffering further injuries and losses related to your personal injury accident. Many personal injury accidents happen due to no fault of the victim. Even if you are partially at-fault, New York CVP § 1411 states you can still recover compensation. However, your role in causing your injuries will reduce the value of your recoverable losses.
We know how to prove negligence and liability in all types of personal injury accidents. You can count on us to identify the liable party or parties and build a case against them by collecting evidence to show they acted carelessly, and how this led to your injuries. We will also manage any and all communication with the insurance companies, liable parties, and others, and represent you throughout the personal injury insurance claims process and in court, if necessary.
Our team works on a contingency fee basis. Our clients never pay fees unless we secure a settlement or award. Reach out to Ben Crump Law, PLLC today to learn more about our services and the steps we may be able to take to help you heal, both physically and financially.

When the victim of a personal injury accident passes away as a result of their injuries, their family may be able to recover a financial award based on their related losses. This type of case is a wrongful death case. We handle wrongful death cases for surviving family members of victims, including spouses, parents, and children. New York laws allow family members to recover compensation in relation to their economic expenses and other losses.
Statutes of Limitations for Personal Injury Accidents in New York
New York law has statutes that create deadlines for personal injury accidents and other types of injury cases. In general, you will have three years from the date your injuries occur to take legal action under CPLR 214(5). Other injury causes that also have a three-year limitation include car accidents (CPLR 214(4)) and product liability cases (CPLR 214(3)). Medical malpractice cases may only have two and a half years per CPLR 214-A.
In some cases, such as when the liable party is a municipality or another government agency, you may have as little as 90 days to take action. Wrongful death actions require filing within two years under EPT 5-4.1.
Meeting the deadlines associated with your type of case is key in taking your case to court and recovering an award. We recommend calling us as soon as possible after your injuries to ensure we have time to build a case on your behalf.
