Michigan Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Time Limitations
Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent patients like you who have suffered injuries due to medical mistakes made by doctors, nurses, and hospitals. In this video, our medical malpractice lawyer discusses time limitations for filing medical malpractice lawsuits. A lawsuit can only be filed when there is a medical error or mistake that caused your injury and the statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases varies from state to state.
In Michigan, a person injured due to a medical malpractice must generally file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the negligent act under the statute of limitations. If the negligent act is discovered after the two year period, you may have an additional six month to file your lawsuit under the “discovery rule”.
If you suspect that your or a family member have been the victim of medical malpractice, you should contact our office immediately to discuss your case. There are strict time limitations for filing medical malpractice cases in Michigan and if you wait too long, your case may be barred forever.
