“Adam Deutsch handled my son’s medical malpractice lawsuit with the utmost professionalism and sensitivity. He was always readily available, provided thorough explanations of the judicial process and kept us informed every step of the way. I am confident that he had my son’s best interest in mind at all times. And, there is no doubt that he achieved an outcome that would not have been possible if it wasn’t for his commitment and dedication to the case.”

“From our first conversation I knew we found the right law firm. Duane and Adam agreed to take on a case that other firms would not even discuss with us. Their diligence and professionalism exceeded our expectations and the outcome was a tremendous success! Their communication was prompt and explanations were exceptional. Hope we never need them again but if you do… you won’t be disappointed.”

Adam Deutsch did an amazing job with my case. No other lawyers would even touch the case because it was high risk and it seemed like it would be tough to get a payout. He took the case, worked hard at it and got a settlement larger than I even expected. The legal team is efficient, communicates well and are clearly great at what they do. Thank you Adam for working hard to help me get a settlement!

New York Personal Injury Laws

New York personal injury laws are designed to provide legal remedies for individuals who have been harmed due to the negligence or intentional actions of others. The following laws may apply to your case:

Statute of Limitations

The time limit to file a personal injury lawsuit in New York is generally three years from the date of the injury, but two and a half years for medical malpractice claims.

New York Civil Practice Law & Rules section 214

“Actions to be commenced within three years…for personal injury;” and “for malpractice other than medical, dental or podiatric malpractice…”

It is crucial to initiate legal action within this timeframe, or you may lose your right to seek compensation.

Comparative Negligence

New York follows a comparative negligence system, meaning that if you are partially at fault for the accident, your compensation may be reduced proportionally.

CVP § 1411

“Damages recoverable when contributory negligence or assumption of risk is established. In any action to recover damages for personal injury, injury to property, or wrongful death, the culpable conduct attributable to the claimant or to the decedent, including contributory negligence or assumption of risk, shall not bar recovery, but the amount of damages otherwise recoverable shall be diminished in the proportion which the culpable conduct attributable to the claimant or decedent bears to the culpable conduct which caused the damages.”

No-Fault Insurance

New York is a no-fault insurance state for car accidents. This means that, in the event of a motor vehicle accident, your own insurance covers your medical expenses and lost wages, regardless of who was at fault.

11 CRR-NY 65-1.1NY-CRR

“The company will pay first-party benefits to reimburse for basic economic loss sustained by an eligible injured person on account of personal injuries caused by an accident arising out of the use or operation of a motor vehicle or a motorcycle during the policy period…”

However, there are exceptions, and a personal injury lawsuit may be pursued if your injuries are considered severe by state law.
