In general, it states that a medical malpractice lawsuit must be filed within two years of the malpractice, or within two years of having symptoms which could have been caused by malpractice, with an outside limit of four years from the malpractice. In the rare case of provable fraud, concealment, or misrepresentation on the part of a health care provider, a claimant has seven years in which to file suit.
