Medical malpractice in Georgia

Medical malpractice laws are complex. In Georgia, you must file suit within two years of the date the act which caused the injury occurred. There are a few exceptions:

If you were unable to discover the injury during the initial two-year period, the limitation period may be extended but these cases can be difficult and problematic.
If a healthcare provider left an object in your body, you generally have one year from the date of discovery to file suit. However, this type of case can be difficult and problematic.

Even with those exceptions, the Georgia Statute of Repose sets a five-year limit from the date of injury in medical malpractice cases regardless of when the injury is discovered. Additional laws regulate medical malpractice cases where the victim is a minor. Unfortunately, cases involving minors are also governed by the Statute of Repose. A qualified medical malpractice attorney can determine if your case is viable.
