Filing a claim following my train accident

How long do I have to file a claim following my train accident?

If you were injured in a train accident, you have 90 days from the date of the accident to file what’s called a notice of claim with either the public authority or the municipality that controls and runs that train system. That it has to be done within 90 days. There are exceptions to the rule, such as if you’re in the hospital continuously throughout those 90 days and you are physically unable to contact an attorney or file that notice of claim, but any time you’re involved in an accident involving a train, in any municipality, especially here in New York, you have 90 days to file that notice of claim, otherwise you’re not gonna be able to bring a lawsuit.
