Statute of Limitations on Water Craft Accidents

Were you severely injured on a boat and have questions about the statute of limitations on water craft accidents? Call our Buffalo attorneys.



As a Buffalo Boat Accident Lawyer, I am often asked about the statute of limitations for a watercraft injury.

  • Because New York State’s statute of limitations is not affected by what the injured party may have been riding or driving, boating injuries are considered general negligence and subject to a three-year statute of limitations.
  • Regardless of the time allowed to bring suit, the case’s most important elements are often established through early investigation, which includes interviews and fact sharing with your attorney.
