Q. NYS- Do I have to settle a liability claim in 3 years or I lose my rights? (struck by car in a crosswalk while on a bike
A: I am going to assume that since you have let three years pass without hiring a lawyer, you did not suffer any serious injury in the accident. If you did suffer a serious injury (broken bone, significant disfigurement, limitation of use of a body part, or disabled for 90 days, or had some type of surgery or procedure, you should contact a lawyer immediately. As for the expiration of the three year statute of limitations, there are a number of considerations. 1. Statute of limitation (SOL) cannot expire on a weekend or holiday, so you always get until the next business day. 2. If you were under 18 when the accident happened, the SOL doesn’t begin to run until your 18th birthday. 3. Because of COVID, the governor tolled all SOL on civil cases adding approximately seven and a half months to your SOL. The validity of the tolling however is being litigated in NYS court and no final decision has yet been handed down by an appellate court. Again, you should consult with a lawyer immediately to discuss your case, and not rely on an insurance company to treat you fairly. They won’t! They are counting the minutes until they can close your file, because once the SOL expires they will never speak to you again and any offer disappears. If you are in Plattsburgh, you should find a lawyer there. If you are in the NYC metropolitan area, please feel free to call us at 212-307-5800.
Q. Hi if a judge issues a remitturr as a motion judgement does that mean that there was a offer discussed already on a case
A: First, I am going to try to make sense of what’s happened in your case. In order for the judge to have reduced the amount of a verdict (remittitur), there must have been a trial on damages in your case following the granting of summary judgment on liability and successful defense of the summary judgment decision on appeal. You make no mention of a trial, so I’m a little confused. Both your attorney and defense counsel have the right to appeal the trial judge’s remittitur decision, and settlement discussions might be ongoing, but not necessarily. You should ask your attorney if there are settlement discussions and he or she can let you know if there has been an offer. In the meantime, your attorney can enter judgement and try to collect as long as there is no stay in place.
Q. Personal injury case has been in special trial part for a year and a half , it’s just adjourned for so long!
A: STP is the last stop in the court process, and it is from there that cases are sent out for jury selection and trial. As I am sure you are aware, the Covid pandemic shut down the court system for months, and jury trials only very recently began again, and on a very limited basis. Unfortunately for you and every one of the many hundreds, if not thousands of other cases waiting to be sent out for trial, it will be months, if not another year or two for the backlog of trial ready cases like yours to be sent out for trial. Good luck to you.
