Buffalo Personal Injury Attorney Explains the Statute of Limitations for Children

As a  dedicated Buffalo Personal Injury Attorney, I am often asked if their is a statute of limitations on child injuries.

  • While New York State’s statute of limitations for infants and adults is the same, the time when the statute starts to run for children does not begin until they reach the age of majority.
  • Variable by type of case, New York State’s statute of limitations can be one year, two years, two and a half years, or three years.
  • In a negligence case, the statute of limitations starts to run at the age of 18 and runs for three years, expiring on the infant’s 21st.

  • I was offered 0 on a low impact accident. After long litigation I was offered 100,000 which mr maranto rejected. I ended up with 235,000. I would definately use this firm again.

  • So far, so good! This law office appears to have it's stuff together. And I like the fact that they don't have to advertise like the the the other 2 law firms with the 444444 and the 888888 numbers which tells me they get a lot of word of mouth advertising..the best kind. Also I called one of the 444 and/or 888 numbers and the attorney was very short and rude. After my case I will do a follow up to let you all know how my complete experience was.
