Medical Malpractice Improper Circumcision at City Hospital
Circumcisions are procedures performed with the purpose of removing the foreskin for medical and religious purposes. When performed incorrectly, however, circumcisions can result in deformities, impaired penile function and emotional trauma which must be endured for the remainder of the victim’s life. Many of these circumcisions are performed by a medical professional at a hospital and if a mistake is made, it is possible to cause serious damage. To pursue legal action, the physician must have been negligent and deviated from the standard of care and caused harm.
The biggest mistake a patient can make is waiting too long to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in court. Statutes of limitations require patients to file legal claims promptly and there are special rules and procedures that must be followed when bringing a claim against New York Health and Hospitals Corporation. In New York, a Notice of Claim must be served within 90 days from the date the malpractice was committed or within 90 days from the last date the injured party was treated for the injuries resulting from the malpractice by the hospital.
