How Long Do Children (minors) Have to be Compensated for a New York Car Accident Claim?

New York car accident cases always have two main issues:

1. Liability: Who is at fault?
2. Damages: What are the medical bills, wage loss, and human losses (pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life)

This video explains an exception to the statute of limitations in New York State for auto, truck, and slip/fall cases for minors (those under the age of 18). Adults (18 and over) have three years from the date of the accident to make a claim for damages.

As a chiropractor, I testified in Court on behalf of patients, gave depositions, and wrote medical reports for personal injury cases. With this perspective in mind, I take you behind the door or the scene so to speak to the thought process of a chiropractor/lawyer who understands the connections, links, and bridges that must be made for a successful personal injury case.

I am a doctor of chiropractic and attorney at law. My law practice focuses on criminal defense, and auto injury.

To learn more about how injury law works in the State of New York I encourage you to explore my educational materials. My you tube library has over 100 medico-legal videos or you can visit my blog.

If you have any legal questions, I urge you to pick up the phone and call since I can answer them at 607-229-5184 or by e-mail at I welcome your call.
