In Idaho, a patient usually has two years to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. A personal injury victim also usually has two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. There are certain exceptions to the two year deadline under Idaho law, for example in some cases involving minor children. Certain procedural aspects can toll the deadline from running for a limited time, such as filing certain pre-lawsuit requests in medical cases in Idaho. But, there are even shorter deadlines that can apply in cases with a governmental entity wherein there is a 180 notice of tort claim deadline (for county hospitals, for example), and there is a two year federal notice of tort claim requirement in certain cases involving claims against the federal government. The bottom line is that each case can be different, so do not delay in contacting counsel to review your potential medical malpractice claim or personal injury matter to determine what the deadlines are in your case.
