Did you know?
There is a “discovery clause” that allows patients to file medical malpractice lawsuits a long time after the actual treatment.
The discovery clause refers to the date of discovery, as in when the patient finds out that some physical or mental ailment is or was caused by medical malpractice. The statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit only kicks in starting from this date.
