How Long Do I Have to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?
Since medical malpractice injuries are not always discovered at the time they occur, the statute of limitations to file a medical malpractice claim works different than other personal injury claims. According to Massachusetts General Laws chapter 260 section 4, you have three years from the date you were injured or depending on the specifics of your case, the date you discovered your injury to file a claim.
