How soon do I have to file a claim following an amputation injury?
Construction injuries that result in the amputation of a limb may render a worker eligible to pursue compensation for their losses. However, there is not an unlimited amount of time in which to file these types of claims. In general, New York law has a three year limit on personal injury cases, meaning that once three years has transpired after the accident, compensation can no longer be pursued. In some cases, the statute of limitations for construction injuries may be even shorter, making contacting an attorney as soon as possible critical for the success of your case.
