Atlanta Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations
In Georgia, patients only have a limited amount of time to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, known as the statute of limitations. Once this time period expires, victims of an accident or injury can no longer file a lawsuit to recover compensation for their losses.
The statute of limitations varies depending on the type of injury suffered. In Georgia, the general statute of limitations for a medical malpractice lawsuit is two years; however, there are exceptions that can either extend or shorten a patient’s time limit for filing a lawsuit.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of a doctor or hospital, it's important to seek legal help immediately.
If you don't pursue your case within the statute of limitations, the law can bar you from recovering compensation for your injuries. To contact our Atlanta medical negligence lawyers today, please complete our free, no-obligation case review form.
