Tort/Negligence – Medical Malpractice – Civil Practice – Statute of Limitations – Claim Accrual (access required)

Boyd v. United States Plaintiff was informed after surgery that her bowel had been perforated and re-sectioned. Plaintiff developed chronic diarrhea immediately after surgery, but no medical professional linked the diarrhea to the surgery until 10 months later. Contrary to the parties’ arguments, the court is convinced that plaintiff became aware of her injury and its cause sometime between her surgery and her visit to a nurse practitioner 10 months later.
