How long do I have to bring my medical malpractice claim? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

The answer to this question depends on the state you are located in.  Some states are as soon as one year; others are as long as three years.  As a general rule, it is always better to move promptly rather than wait to consult an attorney with your questions.  Questions such as these can be answered by calling the attorneys at Shapiro & Appleton& Duffan who will be happy to assist you with that particular question as well as others relating to medical malpractice.
