If you move forward with filing a personal injury lawsuit, we will file your complaint and all other required documents. The party you sue will be listed as the defendant on the complaint. You will be listed as the plaintiff. The complaint will state the nature of your accident and injuries, the legal basis for holding the defendant liable and the types of damages that you are seeking. The defendant will then file an answer to the complaint.

In most situations, if someone acted carelessly under the circumstances that  caused your injuries you will have a case. It is important to consult with an attorney to be sure.

In New York, the statute of limitations for most kinds of personal injury cases gives a claimant three years from the date of the injury to go to court and file a lawsuit against those responsible for the underlying accident. In any case a consult with a knowledgeable lawyer will better determine your situation. As a practical matter, you should try to pursue a claim as soon as possible while the evidence is still fresh.

Very few personal injury cases actually go to trial. An overwhelming majority end in a settlement with the defendant or the insurance company. However, a time estimate would be hard to predict. Hiring an attorney can motivate an insurer to make an offer earlier in the process, as they are less likely to take advantage of you.
