Statutes of limitations restrict the time period that a person can file a lawsuit.
The general statute of limitations for medical malpractice actions in New Hampshire is three years from the time the negligent event occurred or when it should have been reasonably discovered. However, there are exceptions to this rule such as in cases involving minors or in cases involving a federally funded medical provider. In all instances, it is imperative that you act promptly if you believe you’re a victim of medical malpractice. Contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney in order to preserve your legal rights.
