How Long Do I Have to Bring Suit?

Except in extraordinary circumstances, all states have a deadline for when a medical suit can be filed. In Illinois, medical malpractice suits must be filed within two years of the negligent treatment. The earlier we or any attorney can begin work on your case the better the likely outcome. So what you need to remember is that even though there may be two years with which to work, delay is the enemy. Contact a lawyer as soon as you think a mistake may have been made.
