Is this malpractice?
June 5, 2014
My wife had knee problems in 2006 and the Dr noticed a bubble in the bone on an mri and dismissed it. Now 8 years later her knee gave out and a new mri revealed th.e spot doubled in size. It is a rare form of cancer where they remove the section of bone. They never watched this spot for 8 years and if not a new injury would not have know the cancer grew
Whether or not the Dr. in 2006 commited malpractice, it would appear to be too late for any legal action against him. The statute of limitations in NY for medical malpractice is 2 1/2 years from the date of the malpractice or from the end of continuous treatment rendered by the party you intend to sue.
