Let's say you've received improper treatment at any one of the following hospitals or medical facilities:
Bellevue Medical Center;
Coler-Goldwater Hospital & Nursing Facility; Coney Island Hospital;
Gouverneur Healthcare Service;
Lincoln Medical & Mental Health Center;
Kings County Hospital;
Jacobi Medical Center;
Dr. Susan Smith McKinney Nursing & Rehab Center; Metropolitan Hospital;
North Central Bronx Hospital;
Sea View Hospital & Home;
Woodhull Medical Center
If so, these are known as municipal hospitals owned by New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation. That is the legal entity that is responsible for those medical facilities.
You should know that the time limit to file a claim against any one of those hospitals is much shorter than in a typical medical malpractice case in New York.
You should also know that filing a claim is entirely different than filing a lawsuit. In fact, if you suffered injury at any one of these hospitals, you are required to file a notice of claim first before you can ever file a lawsuit.
That is known as a "condition precedent."
Watch the video to learn how much time you have to file a claim against the legal corporation that is responsible for these hospitals. However, you cannot and should not rely on the information contained within this video regarding the time limit that you have to bring a claim or a lawsuit.
Why not? Simple. By the time you actually read this or watch the video, the time limit to bring a claim may have changed. Therefore, the only way to make sure that your claim or lawsuit is timely is to pick up the phone and call.
