Doctors and hospitals are insured specifically to avoid economic damages in the wake of a malpractice suit. However, these insurance providers fiercely defend their bottom line and often try to minimize or marginalize the gravity of the victim's injury. So what is considered medical malpractice?
Common instances of medical malpractice include:
- Birth Injuries from Medical Negligence during Labor and Delivery
- Surgical errors
- Delayed diagnosis
- Medication errors
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice in Colorado?
The statute of limitations in Colorado is two years. This means you have two years from the date the malpractice was inflicted or when you discovered, within a reasonable period of time, the harm. For minors under six, those bringing the lawsuit must be filed before the child turns eight. Waiting too long to file your lawsuit will most likely mean the court will refuse your claim.
How Long Does a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Take?
It is important to understand no two medical malpractice cases are the same. Based on the different factors that make up the case they can last different lengths of time. On a national average, most medical malpractice lawsuits can take 2-3 years to settle. However, if the case goes to trial it could take upwards of 4-5 years. If a medical malpractice case has a large compensation exceeding $2 million the timeline could be anywhere from 5-15 years before it is over.
Medical malpractice litigation can be very complex. This wide difference in length of time is typically due to the complexity of issues that make up the medical malpractice case. Various damages or harms suffered in medical malpractice require different lengths to settle.
