Statute of Limitations: New Appellate Decisions of Interest

, New York Law Journal


In her Medical Malpractice Litigation column, Ann Pfau, the Statewide Coordinating Judge of the New York Medical Malpractice Program, discusses two recent decisions, one in which the First Department held that the statute of limitations period for chiropractic malpractice was not the same as that for medical malpractice, and another that puts the bar on notice that an attorney may be liable for legal malpractice if neglect causes a client to miss the statute of limitations­—even if the attorney's death occurs before the statute runs.
