Trial Lawyers for Justice has gone up against Mayo Clinic and won in the past. We obtained a positive verdict for one client, Patricia Moore, which was later upheld by an Iowa District Court, of $400,000 in past and future pain and suffering damages against Mayo Clinic Health System and the Winneshiek Medical Center. We know exactly what to expect and how to give our clients the best odds of winning their cases.
How Many Years Do You Have to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?
Every state restricts how long an injured patient has to bring a medical malpractice claim against a physician, another health care worker or a hospital. The law giving this deadline is the statute of limitations. In Iowa, a patient has no more than two years after the date of malpractice or injury discovery to file.
If you live in California, the statute of limitations is either one year of the date of discovery or three years of the date of malpractice whichever is shorter. Contact a lawyer long before your deadline approaches to make sure you bring a valid claim. If you try to file after the expiration of your statute of limitations, the courts in your state will most likely dismiss the case.
