ADDITION OF NEW CLAIMS & THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS.
Under the doctrine of “relation back,” amendments to pleadings, NEW Claims of negligence, and defenses MAY BE ADDED even though the statute of limitations has run. Such pleadings will relate back to the date the original Complaint was filed.
MCR 2.118(D) provides that “an amendment that adds a claim or a defense relates back to the date of the original pleading if the claim or defense asserted in the amended pleading arose out of the conduct, transaction, or occurrence set forth, or attempted to be set forth, in the original pleading.” ........IS THIS ALLOWING ME TO ADD A NEW COUNT TO MY NOI OR ONLY MY COMPLAINT?

ADDITIONAL NOTICES OF INTENT & THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS.-....PART B
>
After the initial notice has tolled the statute of limitations once, the tacking (addition) of successive 182-day tolling periods is not allowed, regardless of how many additional notices are subsequently mailed for the claim, or how many additional health professionals or facilities are notified. MCL(###) ###-####(6). An additional Notice of Intent will toll the statute of limitations, and does not violate the prohibition against tacking in MCL(###) ###-####(6) if other notices were sent soon enough that the notice period did not run into the statute of limitations. MCL(###) ###-####(6) only bars multiple tolling periods. Mayberry v General Orthopedics, PC, 474 Mich 1, 7-8; 704 NW2d 69

Sorry I didn't see this question earlier.

1. Your insurance company does not have your medical records, since an insurance company is not a "medical provider" so you don't need to release your insurance "medical information".

2. You are fine on this issue. MCR2203(A) just means that any claims or causes of action not plead in the Complaint are waived as to the defendants sued. You can't sue on some claims and hold back other claims to see what the first outcome is and then sue the same defendants again on different theories of liability. But you are not doing that so not a concern.

3. MCR2.118(D) allows new claims to be added to the Complaint only, but it is specific to the statute of limitations issue. I think the two you cite mean if you discover a new claim after you have filed suit, that was not in your NOI, you are going to have to resubmit your NOI and then after the notice period runs out you have to refile your Complaint with the new claim added. If the new claim would normally be now barred by the statute of limitations, it will not be barred if the initial Complaint was timely filed, as the new claim/Complaint relates back to the initial filing. But I am not 100% sure of this interpretation.
