What is the Statute of Limitations for a Medical Malpractice case in Florida?

In Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit is generally two years from the date of the incident or discovery of the injury. However, there are exceptions for cases involving minors and cases where the injury is not immediately obvious. The time starts running from the date on which the patient knew or had reason to know that his or her injury was caused by medical negligence. An experienced attorney can review your case and determine if you still have time to file a medical malpractice case against a negligent healthcare provider. 

Does Florida have special rules for Medical Malpractice cases? 

Florida law has a pre-suit requirement for medical malpractice cases. Before filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in Florida, certain pre-suit notice and investigation requirements must be met. One of the prerequisites to filing a medical negligence case is obtaining an affidavit from a medical expert which confirms that there are “reasonable grounds” to believe that medical negligence occurred. Florida law also requires that the patient obtain an expert witness affidavit that corroborates the patient’s claim of negligence against the doctor.  The pre-suit process takes at least 90 days to complete. In many circumstances, the parties may come to a settlement agreement before filing a lawsuit. The pre-suit period can be extended by agreement of both parties to try to resolve the case. 

How Do I Know If I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

A viable medical malpractice case in Florida must meet two prerequisites. First, the doctor or nurse you want to sue must have done something incorrectly. This is also called a breach in the standard of care. Second, the health provider’s mistake must have caused the injury. This is called causation. To file a lawsuit against your provider you must have an objective reason to believe that your injury was caused by medical negligence. Another important factor to consider in determining if you have a medical malpractice case is the severity of your injuries. Medical malpractice cases can be complicated to litigate, the extent of the injury must justify the effort of filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
