A person injured due to negligence must generally file a medical malpractice case in Michigan 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 month to file your lawsuit under the "discovery rule".
If you fail to meet these deadlines, your case may be destroyed forever and you cannot sue for your injuries.
In medical malpractice 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.
