Statute of Limitations

There is a statute of limitations (i.e., a legal time clock) in Michigan that limits the time in which an injured patient has to bring a lawsuit. If this time period expires before a lawsuit is filed, the claim will be barred forever. The general rule in birth injury cases is that an injured baby or infant patient must sue within 2 years from the date of the medical mistake or before the person's 10th birthday - whichever date is later. This short time period may be extended briefly in limited circumstances such as where the injury is not discovered until later, the injury occurred before April 1, 1994, or the patient dies and a court-appointed representative prosecutes the claim.

There many legal and technical requirements that must be met before a lawsuit can be filed and the legal time clock stopped. Consequently, it is important for anyone who wishes to pursue a birth injury claim to consult and retain an experienced birth injury lawyer immediately.

In birth injury cases it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, review the medical procedures in question, and to enable physicians or other expert witnesses to thoroughly evaluate the birth record and injuries.
