    Statute of Limitations for Minors in California

    There is a cut-off date for minors, children below eighteen years old, or their parents or legal guardians to file a medical malpractice claim. In California, medical malpractice claims by a minor must be started within three years from the date of the supposed malpractice excluding that claims by a minor under the total age of six years ought to be started within three years or before his or her eighth birthday, whichever offers a more extended interval.

    California offers exclusion for minors in fraud cases. The law maintains that the statute of limitations ought to be strived, for example, it ceases operation momentarily, for minors for any interval throughout which the minor’s parent or guardian and defendant’s insurer or healthcare provider have perpetrated fraud or conspiracy in the failure to take legal action in support of the injured minor for medical malpractice.

    In addition, there is an individual statute of limitations for birth injuries. In California, a claim for a minor for personal injuries experienced prior to or during his or her birth must be started within six years following the birthdate.

    "In over 25 years of practice on the defense side of malpractice cases, Jeff Mitchell is the attorney I fear most. He takes very good cases. Jeff has the medicine and the applicable literature down cold. He is without a doubt the best cross-examiner I have ever seen. I have paid his clients a lot of money over the years."
