Portsmouth, NH asked in Personal Injury for New Hampshire

Q: I had breast cancer in 2015. I had the tumor removed on the left breast. Then had a breast reduction and reconstructive

surgery. I have an ugly, raised reddish /purple scar under my right breast that has not gotten better or disappear during the years. My husband ( now passed in 2019) thought it was ugly and didn't want to touch me romantically. I have never bothered to get involved with a man again, afraid the same thing would happen. The scar has been observed by my doctors, including my cancer doctor. This ugly surgery was performed by a plastic surgeon from Exeter Hospital in NH

A: A New Hampshire attorney could advise best, but your post would have better chances of a reply in the Medical Malpractice category. I'm sorry for your ordeal. Only a New Hampshire attorney could advise on statutes of limitations, but 2015 is a considerable amount of time in most any jurisdiction. You could reach out to local attorneys. Only they could advise on timeliness and other elements governed by state law. Law firms that handle such cases generally offer free initial consults, and these are handled largely virtually these days to accommodate needs. Good luck
