The statute of limitations for construction accidents depend on the facts of the accident and the state where the accident occurred. In New York, the statute of limitations is three years from the date of the accident. In a construction accident resulting in death, loved ones have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim on behalf of the deceased. However, government agency or public entity claims must be filed within 90 days from the date of the accident, and a lawsuit filed within 1 year and 90 days of the accident. Failure to abide by the statute of limitations can prevent you from recovering compensation for your injuries.
