Q: I would like to know if I would have a valid case against Jacobi hospital for an IV infection/surgery in my right arm?
A: It would be difficult for an attorney here to say "yes" or "no" to a case based on the brief format of this question & answer board. You could reach out to med mal attorneys to discuss. If a law firm felt confident you had a meaningful basis for a case, they would retrieve your records and review with medical professionals. In cases involving NYC hospitals, municipal agencies, or other related public entities/parties, there are short timelines involved, including notice of claim requirements in the order of days, and abbreviated statutes of limitations that are shorter than those applied in New York Civil Practice Law & Rules. If you are contemplating action, please reach out to law firms without delay to discuss the timeframes and deadlines within which you must act to preserve your rights. I hope you have a healthy recovery. Good luck
