Hi, Manny, Thank you for your information, and for your patienceAnswer
1. "Medication" cannot commit medical malractice. Medical Malpractice can only be committed by one who provides medical services and the malractice is measured by how far below the acceptable standard of medical services of other similar medical providers in the community.
2. The Medical Malpractice of other Medical providers who diagnosed you at 18 and 19 might be that their malpractice aggravated a preexisting condition (The state of being misdiagnosed was compounded ). This differentiation can only be made by an exert in the medical field. 3. The TwoYear --Statute of Limitations for filing a lawsuit based on Medical Malpractice does not begin to run for a minor until the minor reaches their 18th birhday. The Florida State of Limitations for Medical Malractice is tolled (Stops running) during the time the injured party could not have known about the malractice, until a time when the injured party should have known, or with reasonable investigation and due diligence should have discovered the Medical Malractice. But in no event shall the Statute of Limitations be tolled beyon ten years. There is no definite Answer for this because it is determined by the facrs and circumstances of the case and is a question for the "Trier of Fact" to determine under the facts and circumstances of the Plaintiff's case, when would a resonably prudent person have discovered the Medical Malpractice. You should argue that you should have the maximum amount of time for which the Statute of Limitations is tolled (10 Years) because if it was the medical provider's malpractice which caused you to be unable to ascertain anything, then the docto should ot be able to benefit by giving you a shorter eriod in which you should have discovered it .
Please leave some Positive Feedback, Thank you, ANDREA
