What is the extencion of statute of limitation on medical malpractice in floriuda?

The thing that can extend medical malpractice in Florida-and in most states-is known as "the discovery rule." This means that you have a certain amount of time to file for medical malpractice from the time the illness or injury caused by medical malpractice is discovered. For instance, the injury from a cancer misdiagnosis may not be discovered for months or years after the initial act of misdiagnosis by the doctor. So, the statute of limitations would start from the day that the cancer was discovered, not the day that the doctor failed to diagnose it correctly. In Florida, the law for the statute of limitations is two years with the discovery rule. The article below goes into more detail concerning medical malpractice and the statute of limitations.
