How Long Do I Have to Sue a Hospital for Medical Malpractice?
In every state, there are time limits for the filing of lawsuits, known
as the statute of limitations. If you are injured due to medical malpractice,
one of the biggest mistakes you can make is waiting too long to file a claim.
The standard time-limit for medical malpractice lawsuits in Florida is
two years from the date the injury occurred.
suspends a statute of limitations until an injury due to malpractice is,
or should have been, discovered. For example, if a doctor leaves a small sponge inside of your stomach
after surgery and you don’t find out about the sponge until 3 years
later, the statute of limitations starts then and not when the malpractice
occurred. However, if there is evidence that proves you should have known
about the object, your case could be dismissed.
However, Florida has a very strict
statute of repose law, which means that
no medical malpractice lawsuit can be brought against a doctor or hospital
after fours years from the date of the incident, unless there is evidence to prove the medical
provider used fraud or misrepresentation to conceal the malpractice
