Do Statutes Of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Claims Exist?
Each state can have unique statutes of limitations for medical negligence and malpractice claims. According to Maryland Courts and Judicial Proceedings § 5-109, a claim must be filed either (a) 5 years from the time of injury; or, (b) within 3 years following the date the injury was discovered. For a minor, the statute of limitations is different. Usually, if someone is injured while under the age of 18, they can file a lawsuit up until their 21st birthday. This is a general guideline and there are always expectations, so consult a legal professional when making decisions about your case.
What Type of Compensation Could I Obtain?
It is the personal injury lawyer’s goal to help the hurt client become “whole” again. However, the physical and emotional hardship caused by medical negligence is often impossible to undo. Based on the case, injured parties in a medical malpractice lawsuit could reclaim damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other accident-related costs. Family members who have lost a loved one to wrongful death can recoup funds for funeral costs and loss of consortium. Further, dependents of the deceased may be eligible for financial compensation to cover the foregone financial support.
