Re: Medical Malpractice Law
It is important to tell me when this happened due to the statute of limitations. Please advise when and where the surgery occurred, and when you discovered the foreign object.
There are time periods in Iowa in which a person must bring their medical malpractice case or else they lose their right to bring their case. Please let me know when the surgery occurred and when you discovered that a foreign object was left in your body. Thank you.
