Highlight

A dismissal without prejudice is appealable if the statute of limitations has expired on the plaintiff’s claim, foreclosing further litigation in this state.
A plaintiff in a medical malpractice action must serve an affidavit containing an admissible expert opinion supporting a prima facie case of professional negligence within three months of the commencement of the action or request an extension of the time to serve the affidavit within the three-month period.
Claims of inadequate follow-up or post-operative care ordinarily require expert testimony regarding the appropriate standard of care.
