The statute of limitations on professional negligence -

This answer was rated:

The statute of limitations on professional negligence - medical malpractice - runs in a year. If there are other COA's, such as conversion, does that change the statute of limitations change for the other COA's? Does having a case ruled medical malpractice mean that all the COA's are limited to one year?

Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.

No it does not.Each COA has its own SOL.Medical Malpractice is one year, breach of contract is 4 years.
