Cosmetic surgery malpractice claims have a one-year statute of limitations (Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 2305.113(A)). This means you have one year from the date malpractice occurred to file a lawsuit. If you do not file a lawsuit before a year passes, you lose the right to file one.
However, there are situations when the victim did not discover malpractice immediately after it happened. When this happens, the statute of limitations will start to run once you know or should know you were a victim of medical malpractice by exercising reasonable care and diligence.
Ohio has a statute of repose that says claims cannot be filed more than four years after malpractice, no matter when you discover it. However, there is an exception to this rule that says if you do not discover malpractice within three years of it occurring, you have one year from that date to file a claim (ORC 2301.113(D)(1)).
It can be difficult to make sense of these different laws. That is why you should strongly consider working with a Cincinnati cosmetic surgery malpractice lawyer on your case. Our lawyers can quickly evaluate your situation to determine when the statute of limitations for your claim ends, so we can help ensure your case is filed on time.
