Louisiana law has a one-year statute of limitations on medical malpractice claims. Basically, this means a patient has one year from the day of the incident to file a medical malpractice claim.
Louisiana also has something known as the discovery rule. If a patient did not know, or couldn’t be expected to know of the medical malpractice, they also have one year to file. In this case, they must file within one year from the date they discover the medical malpractice. But, there’s a strict three year limit for filing medical malpractice claims. Even if the patient had no idea that malpractice happened until after the three-year limit. This three-year strict limitation is the statute of repose.
