Will I Have to Sue My Friend if I Was Injured on His Property in NY?

When someone is wrongfully injured, they will often sue the negligent party for compensation. However, if you were injured on your friend’s property, what are you to do? Of course, you don’t want to sue your friend, but you also require financial compensation to heal. Please continue reading and contact our Manhattan personal injury attorney to learn more about these situations and how our firm can assist you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

Will I have to sue my friend if I am injured on his property in Manhattan?

Nobody ever wants to hurt their friends, which is why if you were injured on your friend’s property, you are most likely very concerned about how to proceed. However, fortunately, our firm is here to say that when you file a premises liability claim, you are actually only suing your friend’s insurance company, and not your friend directly.

What should I do after sustaining an injury in an accident?

After being injured in an accident, you should do everything in your power to document the circumstances of the incident. First, you should call the police. You should then ensure that you notify the property owner of the incident. You should also ask anyone else who witnessed the accident for their name, phone number, and email address, as they may provide testimony to corroborate your claim in the future. You should ensure that you take pictures of the unsafe property condition that caused your accident. Finally, once you are treated in the hospital and are in stable condition, you must retain the services of a knowledgeable Manhattan personal injury lawyer who can file a premises liability claim on your behalf. Our firm is ready to assist you.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in Manhattan?

If you are injured in an accident in New York State, you must take legal action within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is, generally, three years, which means that you cannot wait any longer than three years from the date of your injury to sue. The sooner you bring your claim to our firm’s attention, the better off you will be. If you have any additional questions or you are ready to get started, simply pick up the phone and give us a call.
