Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider or professional fails to meet the standard of care, resulting in harm to the patient. When this standard is breached, those responsible may be held accountable through a medical malpractice lawsuit.


Under New York state law, various medical malpractice claims are recognized, including negligence, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, wrongful drug administration, surgical errors, unreasonable delay in treatment, and more.


Statute Of Limitations

In New York, a medical malpractice claim must be filed within two and a half years from the date of the malpractice. If the patient continued to receive treatment from the same healthcare provider, the deadline extends to two and a half years from the last appointment.

Discovery Rule

The discovery rule applies in cases where a surgical instrument is left inside a patient's body. It states that the statute of limitations may begin on the date of discovery, rather than the date of the malpractice.

Lavern's Law (Bill S.6800/A.8516)

Lavern's Law extends the statute of limitations in medical malpractice cases involving a missed cancer diagnosis. The statute of limitations is extended to two and a half years from the discovery of the misdiagnosis, with an "outer limit" of seven years from the missed diagnosis.
