There are statutes of limitations in every state that require that medical malpractice lawsuits be filed within a specific period of time. In cases involving county or state hospitals, the statute of limitations is often shorter than a privately-owned hospital. Also in some cases, a discovery rule may apply that extends the limitation period. Different rules may apply to minors. It is critical to contact a lawyer as soon as possible so that all medical evidence can be collected and steps taken to file a lawsuit if a court settlement cannot be achieved.
