Statute of Limitations for Uterine & Ovarian Cancer Misdiagnosis Claim

It is in your best interest to immediately start the investigation into whether you have a valid medical malpractice/negligence claim.

There are time limits called “statutes of limitations” on how long you have to file a medical malpractice/negligence claim in New York. You must bring a formal lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires or you will be forever barred from doing so.

The statute of limitations for your claim depends on a number of factors, including: who the negligent party is, the type of malpractice/negligence, the age of the injured patient, and whether the patient passed away as a result of the malpractice.

In addition, some hospitals and medical facilities are owned and operated by a City, a County or even the State of New York. In these circumstances, you will be required to serve a “Notice of Claim” before starting your lawsuit. Similarly, hospitals and medical facilities that are owned or funded by the United States have special rules under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) for medical malpractice claims.

Determining the applicable time frame can be confusing so contact Kammholz Law to determine whether you have a claim and what the applicable statute of limitations is. We are here to help!

Paying For Your Uterine & Ovarian Cancer Misdiagnosis Case

We Get Paid Only When You Get Paid

There is no cost to find out whether you have a valid claim. There is also no cost to actually pursuing a claim, should you have one. If there is a successful outcome, we receive our costs and a percentage of what you receive called a contingency fee.

New York’s Judiciary Law Section 474-A, sets the amount of the contingency fee for medical malpractice based upon a “sliding scale” starting at 30% and reducing to as little as 10% depending upon the amount of the recovery. Specifically, the attorney’s fee is 30% on the first $250,000 of the sum recovered. On the next $250,000 recovered, the fee is 25%. On the next $500,000 recovered the fee is 20%. On the next $250,000 recovered the fee is 15%. After that, on any amount recovered over $1,250,000, the fee is 10%. Percentages are calculated on the net amount after expenses and disbursements are deducted. Expenses are costs such as medical expert reviews/testimony, court filing fees, medical records and other costs to properly pursue the claim.
