(1) The failure to meet the requirements is the direct result of the wrongful conduct of another party;

(2) Circumstances beyond the control of the party prevented compliance; or

(3) An applicable statute of limitations on actions would prevent the refiling of an action, in which case the action shall be immediately stayed to provide the claimant with an opportunity to comply with this chapter, but for no longer than six months;

provided that the exceptions provided by this section to any specific requirement of this chapter shall not excuse a party from substantially complying with the remainder of the chapter. [L 2004, c 119, pt of 2]
