What is the statute of limitations in Michigan for a medical malpractice lawsuit?

In Michigan, a person injured due to medical malpractice must generally file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the negligent act under the statute of limitations. If the negligent act is discovered after the two year period, you may have an additional six months to file your lawsuit under the "discovery rule."

If you fail to meet these deadlines, your case will be destroyed forever and you cannot sue for your injuries. It is essential that you contact an experienced Michigan medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible so that you do not lose your rights to a fair settlement.

In cases involving minors or legally incapacitated persons, the limitations periods are often longer. When there is a wrongful death claim, the period is also often extended. To get specific information about your case, you should contact our Michigan medical malpractice law firm at (800) 606-1717.
