How Long Do I Have to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?

Since injuries inflicted through medical malpractice are not always discovered right away, the statute of limitations to file a medical malpractice claim works a little bit different than other personal injury claims. According to Mississippi Code Annotated section 15-1-36, you have two years from the date you sustained your injury or the date you either discovered, or reasonably should have discovered your injury to file a claim.

If you did not discover your injury right away, you may have to provide proof of this fact. There is an overarching time limit of seven years from the date of injury to file a claim, not matter when you discovered your injury. The statute of limitations is a complex area of medical malpractice law with additional exceptions that may affect your case. Call our firm today to learn more about how this law may affect your case.
