Medical malpractice refers to professional negligence by a doctor or professional health care provider that leads to substandard treatment, resulting in injury to a patient.
You put a lot of trust in doctors, surgeons and nurses who are responsible for your well-being. Unfortunately, they also can make big medical mistakes if they are not careful. These mistakes or actions (or lack thereof) of the healthcare professional may be subject to medical malpractice.

In Minnesota, medical malpractice cases are governed by the state’s statute of limitations. This is important to mention, because this statute creates a deadline for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in court.
In Minnesota, the deadline is four years starting from the date ‘’the cause of action’’ accrued.
If the injury is obvious and it happens on the same day it occurs, it will start running on that day. Many times an injury happens later after the treatment, sometimes even months or years later. In these cases, the four-year window starts when the injured person knows, or should have known, something was wrong. This is also known as the ‘’discovery rule’’.
