Statutes of Limitation in Medical Malpractice Claims
Denver, Colorado Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
If you wait, evidence that could help establish your case may be lost, damaged, or even destroyed. In addition, statutes of limitations put strict time limits in place by which lawsuits must be filed. Time limits vary from state to state and are dependent on the specific nature of your injury.
Generally, these time restrictions are two years from when the injury was first discovered, although not always. Cases involving birth injuries and minors are more complex, and are often governed by separate rules and procedures. Cases involving state employees are also more complex and are usually governed by additional rules. The importance of promptly contacting an experienced medical malpractice attorney can not be underestimated.
Failure to file a lawsuit before expiration of the Statute of Limitations will prevent your case from being heard and may prevent you from claiming damages forever.
