I agree that after four years your claim has been barred UNLESS you can show concealment, fraud or misrepresentation. And although you are saying that this is all provable you will need to take the records that show that there was fraud to a lawyer for review. It is incredibly difficult and expensive to prove this and often when you do the insurance coverage of the provider is voided and it is hard to collect from this provider. It is not good news for you and it will be difficult to find a lawyer who would take this on. Our firm could not do so.
I'm sorry you are going through this. If this happened in Florida, and it has, in fact, been more than 4 years since the botched surgery, I am sorry to tell you that in my opinion, Florida's Statute of Repose, Florida Statutes Sec. 95.11, will bar your claim.
