Legal Answers
Q. back in December I had a motion conference for a civil case the preliminary conference is in may what's next
A: If things go as they are supposed to, at the preliminary conference deposition dates will be set, discovery deadlines given, a future status conference scheduled, and a date for the filing of the note of issue will be set. At some point the parties will exchange paper discovery as set forth in the preliminary conference order, then proceed to depositions on the dates set in the order. Once the depositions are finished, the plaintiff will file the Note of Issue, which tells the court that the case is ready for trial. Usually within 60 days of the filing of the note of issue, the parties are required to file dispositive motions if they feel summary judgment is warranted. There will then be several pre-trial conferences before an actual trial date is set. More often than not, parties ignore certain deadlines requiring further conferences, and/or motions. In New York City, the process I just described typically takes between two and four years.
Q. Hello, Can you explain the waiver of statue of limitations to ,me please? Thanks
A: A statute of limitations is the time limit on how long you have to bring a lawsuit. In a personal injury case the time limit is typically three years from the date of accident, but there are other shorter time periods that could apply. A waiver of the statute of limitations is when a defendant or the legislature chooses to allow a plaintiff to bring a lawsuit after the usual statute of limitations has expired.
Q. being sued by someone claiming personal injury from my car in 2018. He went through my insurance. Now he’s suing me
A: First stop and take a deep breath. You have insurance and they will handle it all for you. It seems they were making a claim with your insurance company for the past few years and were unable to reach a settlement. They only have three years from the date of accident to file a lawsuit, and I would guess they were coming up on that deadline. A lawsuit from a car accident is always against the driver and owner of the car, and not against the insurance company, but the insurance company provides you with a lawyer at its expense and pays any settlement or verdict up to the amount of your policy limits. You should immediately send the summons and complaint you received to your insurance company so they can put in an answer on your behalf. You only have 20 days to file an answer, so don’t delay.
