Man who fell after bus accelerated too rapidly cannot sue; his request for no fault benefits wasn't adequate notice to avoid immunity

In Clay v. Doe, the Court of Appeals ruled that even though an injured bus rider had requested no fault benefits immediately, he could not bring a liability action against the bus company because his written notice of claim was filed 78 days, rather than 60 days, after the occurrence.  The Supreme Court has recently held that even a one-day error in computing time limits is fatal to a victim's claim.
