What Is the Statute of Limitations on a Medical Negligence Case?

The statute of limitations in medical negligence cases is very important. First of all, what does that mean? It means that you only have a certain amount of time to investigate and file your medical negligence claim. The statute of limitations generally speaking can be as short as one year in the state of Ohio. Therefore, you need to come to Crandall & Pera Law to get your case investigated as soon as you possibly can.

Medical negligence cases are complicated. You, the victim, carry the burden of proof; you must establish that a particular person made an error that caused you harm. Just getting the relevant paperwork can be a massive task; when you are injured or sick, it can be impossible.

Waiting to file could cost your case

Ohio’s statute of limitations for filing a medical negligence claim is one year. While some circumstances may allow you to file a medical malpractice lawsuit after a year, it becomes much more difficult. The sad fact is that the legal system requires you to consider filing a claim during an emotional and confusing time.
