- Hospitalization and ambulance costs
- Lost wages and loss of future earning capacity, if you will no longer be able to work
- Ongoing and future projected medical care related to your injuries

Statute of Limitations for Defective Medical Device Cases in New York
State law dictates how long you have to file a lawsuit for a defective medical device. This law is known as the “statute of limitations.”
In New York, you must file a lawsuit for a dangerous or defective medical device within three years of the date you were harmed by the device.
After the statute of limitations has passed, you will be barred from filing a lawsuit, unless a very narrow exception applies. Other factors may influence the final deadline, which is why it’s important to speak to an attorney as soon as possible.

What to Do If You’ve Been Harmed by a Dangerous Medical Device
If you’ve been harmed by a dangerous or defective medical device, it’s important to be seen by a doctor right away. Early treatment may reduce your chances of suffering even more serious consequences. If possible, request a copy of your medical records once you’re discharged.
Next, contact an attorney as soon as you can. Your attorney can review your medical records and evaluate whether you have a valid case. In some situations, your attorney may want to have a doctor or relevant expert take a look at your records as well. This is why it’s best to speak with an attorney soon, so you have enough time to decide if filing a lawsuit is the best choice.
