Accidents can occur anyplace, anywhere. Generally, accidents happen when we least expect them, and in many cases, these accidents lead to very serious injuries that can affect a person for the rest of his or her life. One fairly common cause of accidents in New York City is poor lighting, or inadequate lighting. If you recently sustained a serious injury as a result of insufficient lighting, there is a very good chance that you are now seeking financial compensation, as this injury is no fault of your own. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable New York City personal injury attorney to learn more about how our firm can assist you through every step of the legal process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do most accidents due to insufficient lighting occur?
Unfortunately, there are many ways in which serious accidents due to insufficient lighting can occur. One of the most common types of accidents related to insufficient lighting includes slips or trips and falls due to pedestrians failing to see certain safety hazards present. Oftentimes, these accidents occur in poorly-lit stairwells in apartment buildings, parking lots, and more. In other cases, we see people robbed or harmed in parking lots and other areas due to insufficient lighting. Regardless of the circumstances of your injury, as long as you were hurt due to another party’s negligence, there is a very good chance that you will qualify for financial compensation.
How long will I have to sue for injuries due to insufficient lighting in Queens?
When someone is injured due to another party’s negligence, it is their duty to take legal action within the state’s statute of limitations. While you may wish to simply wait and see if your injuries heal on their own, this is seldom a good idea, for if you wait any longer than the statute of limitations allows, there is a very good chance that you will relinquish your right to financial compensation. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York City is, generally, three years, which means that under most circumstances, you will have three years from the date of your accident to pursue compensation from the negligent party. Our firm is ready to help you through every step of the claims process today.
