Are there time limits to sue for injuries in a Florida medical malpractice case?

Yes, and those time limits are very strict. Generally a medical malpractice claim must be brought within two years of the date the malpractice occurred or within two years from when you knew or should have known that malpractice occurred, but no later than four years. There is a fraud exception if the target defendant has altered or deleted records, hidden records from you,. Then the action can be extended from when you first found out about the fraud. It’s important that you contact an attorney that knows this wrongful death statute because if you fail to file it within the time limits prescribed by the statute, you may be forever barred from pursuing a claim.
