How long do I have to file a birth injury lawsuit?

It is important that parents file a medical malpractice lawsuit before the Statute of Limitations expires. In Florida, the Statute of Limitations for medical malpractice is either within two years of when the injury occurred or within two years of when the injury was (or should have been) identified, whichever is later. In addition, the lawsuit must be filed no more than four years after the date of the injury, and no later than the child’s eighth birthday.

The process of building a birth injury case is typically more straightforward when the injury occurred relatively recently, and the process of building a case can be lengthy. Therefore, it is best to consult with a lawyer about the possibility of filing a birth injury lawsuit as soon as possible when a birth injury is suspected.
