How long do I have before I must sue my doctor for medical malpractice?
How long do I have in general before I have to sue the hospital for medical malpractice?
The short answer to these questions is that in general you have 3 years to bring a medical malpractice suit in Maryland, with a cap out at 5 years.
This means that you should not waste time if you think that you are the victim of medical malpractice.
These cases can take a long time to prepare due to their complex nature. Experts are needed to help you establish the standard of care in your case, and how your doctor fell below the standard of care, causing your injury.
Unfortunately, there are some people who wait too long before trying to advance their case and they miss the statute of limitations. When this happens there is very little that an attorney can do for you to try and get the time extended for your filing.
