Question:

Are there any time limits for my lawsuit if I was injured in the hospital?

Answer:

Time Limits For a Medical Malpractice Claim Many clients wonder about the time limits that apply to cases against hospitals or medical professionals. There are specific time limits, and it’s important to be familiar with the specific time limits, as they can vary depending on the situation. For example, if the medical provider is an employee of the state, there are special notice provisions that the lawyer and the individual need to be familiar with as part of the process of filing that claim in a timely fashion. The general rule in Idaho is you have two years from the time when you’ve been harmed until the time when you must file your lawsuit before you lose the right to file the lawsuit, but that’s a very general rule, and there are multiple exceptions depending on the circumstances.

While there’s a two-year statute of limitations that applies to many cases in Idaho, there are a variety of cases that are limited by different specific rules. You need to consult a lawyer that specializes in medical malpractice cases, who understands how those statute of limitations rules apply to your specific case. The bottom line is, consult an experienced professional with experience in medical malpractice cases so they understand the answer to the time limitations that apply to your case. At Hepworth Holzer we understand those issues, and we can give you guidance on those questions.
