State legislature recently passed a bill eliminating the 180-day limit by which an injured person must submit a medical malpractice claim. Previously, if a person made a claim against state employees, it had to be done within 180 days of the injury in question, whereas there is a three-year time limitation on filing a claim against a privately run health care provider.
Now, with the new bill, claims against state-run health care institutions and state employees must be made within three years. The bill's supporters argued that the short time limit is unfair, and people are never notified that they have 180 days to file a medical malpractice claim if anything goes wrong.
