If the statute of limitations in going to run on a matter, how can you hold the statute open? What can be filed if you dont have time to file a complaint to hold open the statute of limitations on a personal injury med mal case?

File a complaint even if its deficient, then file an amended complaint since the first complaint held the window open on the suit.

I realize i am late in my post, but i must add to this thread for the benefits of others looking for direction on the same subject.

The statute of limitations on personal injury cases is regulated and set by state law. Most states will "toll" the statute of limitations (i.e. hold it open) if the injured party is a minor or incapacitated.

So Kash, it would be helpful to know if age or mental capacity were a factor in your case.
