Are There Time Limits for Filing A Malpractice Claim?

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Any civil lawsuit and every civil lawsuit has time limits. For medical malpractice in Florida, it’s basically two years from when you knew or should have known about the negligence or malpractice. We look, we try to be very conservative on that, and we look at the first event that indicates or says that the doctor or the hospital made a mistake and was negligent. And, we look forward two years from that very first event that we possibly can find, so it’s two years, and that’s why you need to hire an attorney, see an attorney, right away. There’s a lot that has to happen before the attorney files a lawsuit. So, see an attorney right away — someone who actually does medical malpractice.
