3 Year Statute of Limitations for Motor Vehicle Self-Insureds

The New York State Court of Appeals ruled that when the party responsible for the payment of no-fault benefits is a self-insured entity, e.g. rental car companies, self-insured for-hire vehicles (taxis, black cars, limousines), and municipalities (New York City Transit Authority, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, a public bus line, etc.), then the three-year statute of limitations, set forth in CPLR § 214(2), is applicable.
