One important fact to bear in mind with regard to medical malpractice cases is there is a statute of limitation on filing claims. This means that if you wait until more than three years after the onset of your problem — the moment you knew you needed to see a doctor — you won't be allowed to pursue legal action.
The problem is, not every injury is initially obvious. It may take time to realize the nature and seriousness of an injury.Doctor Negligence Attorney Serving Hartford and Springfield
