You have two and a half years from the date the malpractice action arises to file a summons and complaint in Supreme Court or risk being time-barred by the statute of limitations.

If the malpractice occurred in 2011, you should speak with a malpractice attorney immediately so as to avoid having your claim rejected because of the statute of limitations.

You may call my office for a free telephone consultation.

Good luck!

Depends on whether this occurred in a private hospital, City hospital, State Hospital, federally funded health clinic, private doctor's office, etc. Get in touch with an attorney without delay. Best, M. E. Zuller
