New York City’s Public Hospitals
When a medical mistake causes an injury that was due to a public hospital error or mistake, the law requires that a Notice Claim be served upon the public entity within the time prescribed by the law, usually as short as 90 days from the date of the incident producing the injury.
New York City’s Public Hospital System is operated by the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC). As a Non-Mayoral Agency, HHC is the proper entity to serve a Notice of Claim upon when there is a medical error caused by one of New York City’s public hospitals, and not the City of New York.
There are many such complexities in the law. It is, therefore, important to have an experienced New York City personal injury lawyer on your side to protect your interests.
