    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You must file a notice of claim in proper legal form within 90 days of the incident. You may have a case. However, establishing notice (or one of the exceptions), accounting for the delay in treatment, and several other issues that are apparent in your post you will have a most difficult legal claim. Sorry, good luck, and contact an attorney today.
