How long do I have to bring a case?
Every case must be filed within the statute of limitations, which is a fixed period of time after an incident during which a case must be filed. Victims lose the ability to recover for their injuries if they do not file their case within the statute of limitations. For instance, many injury cases have a three year statute of limitations, which may be subject to certain exceptions. However, for actions against a municipality in New York, a notice of claim usually must be filed within 90 days of an injury. To determine the statute of limitations in your case, contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible after an accident. A knowledgeable attorney will be able to determine the applicable statute of limitations and provide advice on how you should proceed.

Do I need a lawyer to look over all my contracts?
Whatever form or name, if the contract meets legal requirements, and is signed by both parties, it will be legally binding. Having an attorney review a contract can help prevent problems from arising. You don't want to discover that you have signed away important rights, failed to include important protections, or failed to receive what you expected. Hiring an attorney before you sign any contract is less expensive than hiring a lawyer after you have signed, and something goes wrong. Hiring a lawyer is also extremely beneficial in regards to getting advice on tax consequences, making sure that your rights are protected, to make sure that the contract is not overly favoring one side over the other, and to advice you on other fields of interest that the contract may touch upon though may not mention so clearly.
