How Long Do I Have to File a Birth Injury Claim in Detroit?

Image of MichiganWhen you file a birth injury claim in Detroit or the state of Michigan, you actually file a medical malpractice claim. Each state has a statute of limitations, or time limit, dictating how long you have to file a medical malpractice claim. It is important to meet this deadline if you plan to pursue a case, because once the statute of limitations expires, you may lose your chance to file your claim forever.

Under Michigan law, parents have two years to file a medical malpractice or wrongful death claim. In the case of minor plaintiffs, this time limit may extend up to 10 years. You can learn more about the Michigan medical malpractice statute of limitations here.
