Optometrist Avoids Medical Malpractice Suit Due to Statute of Limitations

Neil Flaherty v. Paul Kantrowich O.D. et al., 1871 805433/13
An appellate court dismissed a medical malpractice suit against a New York optometrist. The suit alleged that the doctor failed to diagnose a brain tumor that caused partial blindness in the plaintiff. The First Department held that the plaintiff’s suit, dating back to a 2005 examination, was barred because it failed to meet the statute of limitations.
