State Medical Malpractice Laws and Deadline Requirements

Each state has its own medical malpratice laws and filing deadlines, called statutes of limitation. Statutes of limitation put a limit on the amount of time you have—often between six months and two years—to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. If you miss the filing deadline, your lawsuit will almost certainly be dismissed, no matter how strong your case is.
