Especially in the summer months, I often get calls from people who have been injured in boating accidents. One of the most frequent questions I receive is, “How much time do I have to bring a claim? What is the statute of limitations for a boating accident case?” New York State does not differentiate among claims depending upon what the injured party may have been riding or driving when it comes to the statute of limitations. General negligence is still subject to a three-year statute of limitations. However, even though you have that much time to bring suit, the most important elements of a case are often established through early investigation – including interviews and the sharing of facts about the incident with your attorney. It’s also important to get the proper medical care promptly.
