Hi, and Welcome to JustAnswer

 

Thank you for your question,

 

My name isXXXXX am a licensed, practicing Attorney and would be glad to help with your question,

 

 

Q. Please tell me the type of negligent case it is because New York has a different Statute of Limitations for ordinary negligence cases causing personal injury and a different Statute of Limitations for medical malpractice negligence cases.

 

Thank you

Hello Andrea,
I believe you can categorise it under Statute of Limitations for ordinary negligence cases causing personal injury.

Thank you for your additional information,

 

The New York Statute of Limitations for negligence actions is 3 years. If the injuries result in death, the Statute of Limitations for a wrongful death action is 2 years from the date of death.
