No matter how you were injured, Mark A. Eskenazi has been handling accident and medical malpractice cases for more than 35 years.
Not every accident is someone else's fault. And not every injury is serious enough to bring a lawsuit. But if you've been badly injured, and you believe it shouldn't have happened—that it wouldn't have happened if someone else had fulfilled their responsibility—you may have a right to compensation for what occurred.
But you need to know this: The fact that you have a right to pursue damages does not mean you can. There are time limitations with respect to all causes of action. If you wait too long to start a case, you can lose your right to proceed because of the controlling statute of limitations. Some are as long as ten years, most are between two and three years and others are as short as 90 days (including all cases against the City of New York, the Housing or Transit Authority and the New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation).
If you live in the New York City, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens or on Long Island, and you or someone you love has been injured, you owe it to yourself to find out what your rights are. And whether there's still time to act.
