Unfortunately, there is not an easy answer to this. The medical malpractice legal team at Latona Law makes the process as easy as possible. The first step is a brief, 15-minute free consultation to review the situation with a Latona Law medical malpractice attorney. In this this consultation we gather the facts that allow a medical negligence review, but even if malpractice occurred, various statutes or other limitations could still restrict our ability to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Therefore, before filing a claim, a more thorough review by our team of expert medical malpractice lawyers and doctor/lawyers is necessary. After this review we will have a better idea of if there was a medical error or negligence in your treatment and if the catastrophic damages fall within the statutes in the state of Pennsylvania.
The duration of time to file a claim varies based on the type of injury suffered and the medical malpractice case that can be filed. This is also known as medical malpractice statute of limitations. For example, in the state of Pennsylvania, you have until your child’s 20th birthday to file a claim for their preventable injuries. For an adult medical negligence claim, the Pennsylvania Statue of Limitations is two years from when first discovered or should have been discovered. For this reason, it is imperative to act quickly and have your case reviewed by a Latona Law medical malpractice attorney.
The Latona Law medical malpractice legal team will limit the burden on your family as much as possible. There are different ways to approach a medical malpractice case and the team will thoroughly explain these options to you and your family. Understanding your involvement is another important step in considering whether to file a medical malpractice claim. Another reason we always suggest acting quickly is to allow enough time for us to analyze and consider the options available.
There’s no cost or fees to until we recover compensation for the struggle you and your family face. Before filing the claim, you will receive a client agreement that outlines the costs and fees associated with the medical negligence case. There is no payment required if we fail to recover compensation for you and your family.
