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

In Illinois, when you file a claim for a birth injury, you actually file a medical malpractice claim. Under Illinois law, 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 may extend up to eight years in the case of minors.

It is important that you contact an experienced birth injury lawyer to discuss how the statute of limitations—how much time you have to file your claim—applies to you. Once the statute of limitations has expired, your claim may be barred forever. Our Chicago birth injury attorneys can explain how the medical malpractice statute of limitations in Illinois relates to your potential case.
