Each state has its own statute of limitations, or SOL, which essentially means the amount of time you have to bring a claim about your child’s birth injury. Wrongful death claims, or claims brought on behalf of a child as a result of negligent care are also governed by SOLs that vary from state to state. In some states, the law provides for only one year in which to file a claim. For this reason, it is essential to reach out to an experienced birth injury attorney as soon as possible if you believe your child was injured at birth.
