How Much Time Do I Have to File a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit in Florida?

In the State of Florida, including in possible medical malpractice actions against HCA Florida Kendall Hospital, there are specific statutes of limitations governing the time within which a medical malpractice lawsuit must be filed. Generally, under Florida law, you have two years from the date of the incident or the date that you reasonably should have known about the injury and malpractice, to initiate a medical malpractice action against the responsible medical providers.  Determining when a statute of limitations expires in a medical malpractice action can be very complicated, so it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney promptly.

However, there is also a four-year statute of repose, which sets an absolute maximum of four years from the date of the alleged malpractice incident within which a lawsuit must be filed, regardless of when the injury or malpractice was discovered. It’s essential to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can provide accurate guidance based on the specific details of your case and ensure that you meet all applicable deadlines and requirements when pursuing a legal claim against HCA Florida Kendall Hospital or any other healthcare institution in Florida.
