Many South Florida personal injury claims are governed by statutes of limitations. The statute of limitations is the time limit you have for filing your claim; once that time limit has expired, you can no longer file your claim. While the idea of a time period for filing a claim may seem straightforward, it can become complicated quite quickly.
For example, if you are injured as a result of medical malpractice, the statute of limitations states that you have two years from the time of injury in which you may file a claim. However, if you suffered an injury that is not discovered within that two year window, you must file your claim within a year from the date that the injury was discovered or when it should have been discovered, whichever is earlier.

Medical malpractice law governs the liability of doctors and other treatment providers when they cause harm to a patient by rendering their services in a negligent manner. All states have their own laws and procedures to handle these specialized personal injury cases. But in general terms, a doctor will be held liable if his or her conduct fails to meet the “standard of care” provided by other doctors under similar circumstances.
