Protecting Your Right to Justice and Fair Compensation
In the state of New York, barring special circumstances, victims of medical malpractice have two years and six months to file a medical malpractice claim. However, it is important to consult an attorney as soon as there is a suspicion that medical negligence has occurred. Doctors, hospitals, and their insurers often explain a birth injury, surgical mistake and other medical errors as “a risk of a procedure” or that “there was no way to know earlier.” By delaying investigation into a medical malpractice case, important evidence can be lost. Our attorneys know this, and are able to immediately investigate and pursue medical malpractice claims.
