Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

The medical malpractice statute of limitations in California is very confusing. A medical claim generally begins to run within one year of the date of the discovery of the injury and its negligent cause. However no claim may be brought after three years of the date of the injury (with the exception of claims that involve children under the age of eight).

If you believe you have a claim and have a question as to the applicable statute of limitations, please contact Michael Dorshkind immediately.
