How Long Do You Have to File a Birth Injury Claim in Illinois?

When you file a claim in the state of Illinois for a birth injury, you are filing what is typically referred to as a medical malpractice claim. Due to the complexities of this type of law, a birth injury attorney in Chicago will be able to explain the statute of limitations for the state of Illinois and how it relates to your potential case.

Under Illinois law, in the case of medical malpractice, you have two years from the date you knew or should have known about the injury, and no more than four years since the injury occurred.  However, this can be extended in the case of minors up to eight years.  Therefore, it is important that you contact one of our experienced attorneys as soon as possible to discuss how the statute of limitations would be applied to your case.  Once the statute of limitations has expired, a claim may be barred forever, so please do not delay.
