Statute of Limitations
Understand the Birth Injury Statute of Limitations in Your State
Each state in the United States has a statute of limitations, or SOL, which dictates the amount of time you have to bring a lawsuit against a negligent healthcare provider about your child’s birth injury. Wrongful death claims, claims brought as a result of a child or mother passing away due to negligent care provided at or near the time of birth, are also governed by SOLs that vary from state to state. In some states, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims provides for only one year in which to file a claim. Therefore, it is essential to reach out to an experienced birth injury attorney as soon as possible if you believe your child was injured at birth.
