New Jersey and New York both have strict guidelines when it comes to statutes of limitations. Failure to file claims within the deadline may make it impossible for you to collect damages in your personal injury lawsuit. The statutes of limitations are particularly strict when it comes to all claims against the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. If you were injured in an accident and are going to sue the Port Authority, you must bring your lawsuit within one year of the accident or lose your right to sue completely. Additionally, you must make a notice of claim 60 days before filing the lawsuit. Speak with Mr. Calcango right away about statutes of limitations on personal injury lawsuits in NJ and NY.
