If I want to file a claim, and medical battery and medical malpractice (negligence) occur from the same act or omission, do I have to file before the medical malpractice statute of limitations?
Ethics / Professional Responsibility Lawyer
You need to talk to a lawyer about this. Medical malpractice claims require expert legal representation. Medical battery claims are few and far between and are not covered by insurance. A decision must be made based on facts and the law of your state whether there is a valid basis for any sort of claim at all, and if so, what claim to file. Since you have provided no facts in your question, I can offer no further information.
Any opinions stated in response to Avvo questions are based upon the facts stated in the question. Responses to Avvo questions are for general information purposes only, and should not be construed or relied upon as legal advice.

Medical Malpractice Attorney
I agree with Mr. Brophy with respect to your question. Other than telling you to consult with a medical malpractice attorney, the advice that I can give you is limited because there are no facts about the case posted. I hope you find my answer helpful.
