How long does a medical malpractice lawsuit take to finish? Medical malpractice cases are often complicated with complex medical and legal issues. Unfortunately, the medical malpractice statute also requires cases to be presented to a medical review panel before going through the court system. This requirement adds another layer of time and complexity.
It is not unusual for a medical malpractice case to take two to three years to work its way through the entire process. For this reason, it is important to have significant injury and damages to justify the lengthy process of a medical malpractice case.
