Its hard to figure out what your question means, but I think you're saying you had a stillborn delivery in 2007. It's not clear what your allegations of malpractice are. In any event, the statute of limitations in New York for medical malpractice is 2 1/2 years from the date of malpractice or from the end of continuous treatment rendered by the party you intend to sue. Med mal cases are complex and require a lot of work and money by the attorney taking them, and now that you are about 4 years too late to file, I'm afraid you should let go of any thoughts of a lawsuit at this point. I wish you the best.
