How Could A Statute of Limitation Affect My Medical Malpractice Case?

http://www.shevlinsmith.com A statute of limitations is an important factor to consider when deciding whether or not you want to pursue your potential medical malpractice or negligence case.  The statute of limitations is the deadline to file your case and varies by state and several other factors.  For example, Virginia has a 2 year statute of limitations while Washington DC has a 3 year deadline.  There are sometimes exceptions to these rules the case involves minors, governmental agencies, fraud and foreign objects that are left inside a patient’s body.  Because every case is different and statute of limitations varies depending on these factors, it is important to speak with an attorney so you will know exactly how much time you have.  The lawyers at Shevlin Smith have experience dealing with medical malpractice cases in Virginia and the District of Columbia.  If you find that you have any questions or would like to arrange your free consultation, give us a call anytime at 703-591-0067.
