Do I have a deadline for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit?

In general, you have two years from the date of the malpractice to bring a lawsuit.

However, the time for bringing a claim may be extended if the malpractice continues over a period of time.

Young children have either two years or until their eighth birthday to bring a malpractice claim, whichever is later.

This can be a complicated issue and requires a review by an attorney.

It is a good idea to get advice about a potential medical malpractice lawsuit as soon as possible, so records can be obtained and a complete review conducted.
