Timing Is Critical In New York City Municipal Vehicle Accidents
If you have been injured in an accident that involved any type of municipal vehicle, you need to act quickly to preserve your right to pursue legal action. If you were hit by an NYCTA bus, for example, you only have 90 days to file a notice of claim. If you have already missed this deadline, you may or may not be able to request an extension from the court.
There are many other stipulations in the law with regard to filing claims against a government entity or authority, and timing is a critical consideration in accident claims involving municipal vehicles. By hiring a qualified New York City attorney immediately following your accident, you can feel confident that your case is in good hands and all deadlines will be met.
We obtained $2 million in damages for a client who injured her ankle getting off a bus. There was a crater in the pavement at the bus stop that the victim landed in, resulting in severe injuries and requiring extensive care.
