Statute of Limitations & Medical Malpractice Cases

There are other requirements for filing a medical malpractice suit. Patients must file their legal suit before the statute of limitations passes. Florida law requires patients to file their claim within two years of the date of discovery of injuries sustained in the applicable medical procedure. The filing process can be confusing for many victims, and meeting the deadline and filling process is vital to your case moving forward. If you’ve sustained injuries related to negligence or a failure to act by your doctor or medical professional, you should contact our Fort Myers medical malpractice attorneys today. 

There are exceptions to the statute of limitation, such as: 

  • Your medical malpractice was purposefully hidden from you by a medical professional providing your care. If this type of fraud impacted your case, the statute of limitations would be extended to up to seven years from the date of the malpractice event. 
  • If the victim involved in the medical malpractice claim was a child when the event occurred, the statute of limitation deadline does not begin until the child’s eighth birthday.

If you qualify for an extension, the additional time only applies to the discovery period. The filing deadline is still two years from when the injury was identified.
