Illinois Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

In the state of Illinois, medical malpractice claims must be filed within two years of the date an injury is discovered. However, all medical malpractice claims, regardless of the date of discovery, must be filed within four years of the date injury occurred.

When you or a loved one are injured through medical negligence, waiting to file a claim is never in your best interests. The sooner you have an experienced Illinois medical malpractice attorney on your side, the better your chances of getting the full compensation you are due.

Illinois Medical Malpractice Damage Caps

There are no damage caps on medical malpractice claims in Illinois. This means that your medical malpractice attorney can seek compensation well in excess of the offerings of initial settlements. However, to get the full compensation you are due, you need an aggressive medical malpractice attorney on your side as soon as you learn of your injury.

The Illinois medical malpractice attorneys at our firm are ready to take your case as far as necessary to help secure every penny you deserve.
