Is there a time frame within which a claim must be made?
Typically, a victim of medical malpractice has a limited
period of time (determined by Statutes of Limitations
and Statutes of Repose) in which to file a medical
malpractice claim in court, or they are forever barred
from succeeding on their claim and from recovering. In
some states, this time period may be one (1) year or
less. Although exceptions may exist in certain
instances, each exception is fact-sensitive and
requires the analysis of a qualified attorney to
determine if they are applicable. In addition,
given the complexities of medical malpractice cases
and the need for a thorough medical and legal analysis
before it can be determined that a claim should be
filed, waiting until the end of the period in which
one must file a claim could deprive the attorney
sufficient time to complete a review of the case in
a timely fashion. Anyone who suspects they may be a
victim of medical malpractice should thus
contact a qualified attorney.
