Jackson Heights Hospital Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Jackson Heights was a small hospital in Queens which opened during the Great Depression. It subsequently closed in the 1990s and is today a public school.

Queens still has many hospitals, and you might have received treatment at one of them. Call Michael Gunzburg, P.C., if you think you have received poor medical care. In New York, patients have important legal rights, which include the right to sue a hospital or doctor for substandard treatment. Our Jackson Heights Hospital medical malpractice lawyer can explain more in a free consultation.

Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

New York has set a statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases. This law provides the maximum amount of time a patient has to file a lawsuit based on medical negligence. Here are the high points:

  • An adult typically gets 30 months to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit against a hospital or medical professional. The clock will begin to run on the day you suffered the malpractice. For surgery, that will be the day of surgery.
  • Children can wait until they are 18 before the clock starts. However, parents should still call a lawyer, because you can bring a legal claim before they are adults.
  • If the case is based on a surgical implement left behind, then a patient gets one year from the date they discover the implement or when they should have discovered it.
  • If you received medical care from Jackson Heights back in the 1990s, then the clock has run out by now. That means you can’t sue them. However, you might have received treatment from a different facility in New York, and your rights could very well still be active.

Call an experienced medical malpractice lawyer. You don’t want to miss the deadline if there is still time left on the clock. Going over means you forfeit your ability to sue, and you will probably not receive any money for your pain or disability. You want to be in under the deadline.
