How long do I have to file a Michigan medical malpractice case against a Michigan hospital for a case involving a surgical mistake?

The time limit for filiing lawsuits is called the "Statute of Limitations." The general rule for medical malpractice cases is that a patient has two years from the date of the malpractice to file a lawsuit against all negligent health providers.  There are some exceptions to the rule, like for cases for children or those involving wrongful death.  It is important to contact our office immediately when you suspect that malpractice has occurred so that a deadline does not destroy your case.
