A person recently posted the following question:
I had a knee surgery done 2 6 2014. It never healed right. Now I go to pain management. I had an MRI done. When the result came back [the doctor] said, “Someone did surgery on your knee?” I said yes. He said go get a disk and give it to him so he can see what he did wrong. Now what do I do??
We posted the following answer:
You should get all of your medical records and consult with a medical malpractice lawyer so that they can be reviewed by the appropriate medical expert. You should act fast as it had been some time since your surgery. In NY the statute of limitations is 2 1/2 years from the date of the malpractice unless you are entitled to an exception.
