Statute of Limitations

There is a statute of limitations (i.e., a legal time clock) in Michigan that limits the time in which an injured patient has to bring a lawsuit. If this time period expires before a lawsuit is filed, the claim will be barred forever. The general rule in medical malpractice cases is that an injured patient must sue within 2 years from the date of the medical mistake. This short time period may be extended briefly in limited circumstances such as where the injury is not discovered until later, or the patient dies and a court-appointed representative prosecutes the claim.

There many legal and technical requirements that must be met before a lawsuit can be filed and the legal time clock stopped. Consequently, it is important for anyone who wishes to pursue a medical malpractice claim to consult and retain an experienced medical malpractice lawyer immediately.
