Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight. I
am sorry about your pain and misdiagnosis.
Yes, you can always bring suit against a doctor for negligence.
When did this all happen?
January of 2011
Oh, that is bad news. The statute of limitation is two years in IN pursuant to IC 34-20-3-1. So it is too long now to go after the doctor.
Thank you for your time
If you had brought a suit against the doctor in the past two years, then you would have been able to at least bring suit.
You are welcome, I hope you get feeling better.
At least now you know.
Please take time to give me feedback.
