Robert Vilensky, a partner at Ronemus & Vilensky, and Erica Podolsky, an associate at the firm, write: Children in our society are considered "precious assets" and are treated differently by the public at large. In medical malpractice cases in New York, however, children are treated like second class citizens. The influence of tort reform is clear in the laws that have been passed and in the decisions rendered by New York judges in applications filed by children for late notices of claim.
