Gerry's Educational Medical Malpractice Website
You suffered an injury in a NYC municipal hospital. Maybe it was Jacobi Hospital, Bellevue Hospital, Elmhurst Hospital, North Central Bronx, Queens General, Kings County Hospital or another one of the hospitals owned and operated by New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation.
In New York, as of October 2012, you typically have only 90 days from the date of the wrongdoing within which to file a "notice of claim" against New York City health and hospitals Corporation. (That time can change and you cannot rely on that info when you watch this video days, weeks, months or even years later).
What happens if you only realize you may have a valid medical malpractice case after the 90 days have passed? Can you still file a claim against the hospital?
It is vitally important to realize that if you intend to bring a lawsuit against one of the municipal hospitals owned and operated by NYCHHC, there is an absolute requirement to file a timely 'notice of claim' first. This video explores the steps that must be taken if more than 90 days have passed.

Here's a cardiac malpractice case where I was able to achieve a $6 million dollar settlement for my client.
Here's a foot surgery case where a Westchester, NY jury awarded my client $1.55 million dollars for her pain and suffering.
To learn more about how medical malpractice cases work in the state of New York, I encourage you to explore my educational website.
