You have 3 days left to start your New York medical malpractice lawsuit. Here's why I cannot help you.

Gerry Oginski
NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Trial Lawyer

You have waited till the very last minute. You thought you had more time. You decide to contact an experienced medical malpractice trial lawyer in New York to evaluate your possible case.

You are pretty sure you have a valid case.

When you speak to an attorney, you learn you have only three days left to file your lawsuit and he cannot help you. You call another attorney and ask whether he would be interested in investigating your case. You get the same type of response. What's going on?

What's going on is that it is impossible to do a full, thorough and complete investigation about your potential medical malpractice case in just a few days. It takes many months to do a thorough investigation.

You must come into the office for full consultation in order for us to obtain all of the details about what happened to you. Then we have to get copies of all of your medical records. That can take months. Then I have to review all of your medical records in order to understand what happened and when.

Then I have to send your medical records out to a qualified medical expert to evaluate whether or not there was wrongdoing, whether the wrongdoing caused injury and whether you have significant and/or permanent injuries.

This can take 3-6 months or even more.

That is why when you come into our office with only a few days left to file your lawsuit, it will be impossible for me to proceed forward with any investigation, knowing full well that I cannot do justice for you in such a short period of time.
