In Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a stroke medical malpractice claim is 2 years from when the patient either knew or should have known that the injury exists and there is a plausible probability that it was caused by medical malpractice. Simple and clear-cut cases take up to 6 months to conclude, while complex ones can take up to 5 years for damages to be paid.
The period it takes to conclude a medical malpractice case depends on its particularities. Many factors should be considered in estimating the time it would take a case to be resolved.
A simple case may also take longer to conclude due to disputes that arise throughout its resolution. This could happen once the doctors supply a medical answer to resolve the difficulty.
Simple and clear-cut cases take up to 6 months to conclude, while complex ones can take up to five years for damages to be paid.
