Statutes of limitations can vary greatly from case to case. It is crucial to contact an experienced lawyer if you suspect that a medical provider committed malpractice to, at a minimum, figure out whether you are eligible to make a claim under the statute of limitations. In Illinois, generally, the time a competent adult has to file a medical malpractice lawsuit is 2 years from the date of discovering an injury is due to malpractice. But, unless you were under 18 when you underwent the malpractice, you cannot file a lawsuit more than 4 years after the actual date of the negligent medical treatment.
