ADHERE TO IMPORTANT DEADLINES WHEN FILING AN INJURY CLAIM

The statute of limitations on different types of medical malpractice claims can be tricky and complex. Make sure to act quickly or you will lose your chance to recover the compensation you deserve.

Medical malpractice claims normally have a 2 ½ year time limit to file a legal claim. Wrongful death claims normally have a 2 year time limit to file a legal claim.

Dentists, orthodontists, periodontists, and oral surgeons are held to a certain standard of medical care, just like doctors. If a dental professional fails to uphold the applicable standard of care, which results in injury to the patient, it gives rise to a claim for dental malpractice.
