Medical Malpractice Statute Of Limitations
New York law requires a medical malpractice lawsuit to be filed within two years and six months of the date of the malpractice or the completion of ongoing treatment. If a foreign object was left inside the body, you have one year from the date of discovery to bring a lawsuit.
Minor children, however, have an extended time period to seek justice, allowing 10 years since the incident to bring a case. Because you have a limited time to come forward with a case, we recommend involving an attorney from our Hudson Valley, NY law firm as soon as possible.
Why Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers?
There are no limits to the amount of compensation a victim of medical malpractice is entitled to recover. That is why our Hudson Valley medical malpractice attorneys aggressively pursue all avenues to present a comprehensive view of how an injury has impacted your life. We provide compassionate guidance throughout the process to help you make informed decisions.
Retaining legal representation for medical malpractice cases is essential. To prove a case, a patient must be able to show that a professional relationship existed with their doctor, the doctor was negligent, this negligence resulted in an injury, and this injury resulted in specific harm. Our team works with numerous experts to build rock-solid cases for our clients.
