Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice
Unfortunately, medical malpractice is far too common in the United States.
Numerous patients needlessly suffer or die every year due to negligence
by individuals who are supposed to act in a professional manner. Many
victims may not be aware of their rights or even how to begin pursuing
compensation for the damages that they suffered.
It is important to understand that there is a statute of limitations in
Maryland for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. This is either five
years from the date that the malpractice occurred or three years from
the date that the injury or error was initially discovered.
