I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

Could you please tell me the tort and how long can you file after the incident and what is the statute of limitation

New Expert here.

Montana has a 3 year statute of limitations to file a lawsuit for medical malpractice, see

You can get a free consultation from some of the medical malpractice attorneys listed by location here.

Please follow up on this with a local attorney.

I hope this information is helpful.
