How Long Do I Have to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?

Since medical malpractice injuries are not always discovered right away, the statute of limitations to file a medical malpractice claim works a little different than filing a personal injury claim. According to Fla. Stat. Ann. § 95.11, you have two years from the date you were injured or the date you discovered your injury to file a claim with a maximum amount of time to file a claim being four years. The statute of limitations can be a complex area of medical malpractice law, call our firm today to learn how this law may affect your case.

Proving Medical Malpractice

Whether you are taking legal action against a doctor, hospital, specialist or another medical professional, you will need to show basic elements of proof. These include showing that the doctor owed you a legal duty of care, failed to conform to the accepted standard of care, and that deviation constituted a breach of duty, which was a direct and proximate cause of your injuries. Additionally, you need to show that you suffered damages as a result of the injuries.
