What if I have a case against a governmental entity or public hospital?

If the claim is against a state entity (such as UNM Hospital, Department of Transportation, or City of Albuquerque) a notice of claim setting forth the time, place, and circumstances of your anticipated action must be filed within 90 days of the event, along with a statement that you may pursue a claim.

If the claim is against a federal entity, you must file a claim within 2 years of the event in question, but there are specific time periods regarding the notice of claim once it has been filed.

It is best to speak to an attorney.
