When to Get a Personal Injury Lawyer to Help with Your Toxic Water Case
New York limits the window of opportunity for you to file a lawsuit against the municipality. According to New York Civil Practice Law & Rules § 214, you generally have three years to file legal action for injuries you suffered after contaminated water.
Because your case involves a government municipality, you may also have to meet specific filing and notification deadlines. Misinterpreting or missing the statute of limitations could result in an inability to file your lawsuit at all. Our water contamination attorneys will meet the filing deadline and manage your case’s timeline so that you can focus solely on taking care of yourself and your family.
