Example: Incident occurs April 26, 2011.
Two year statute runs out.
Can you still file on April 26, 2013 or was the last date to file April 25, 2011?
2 years expires that date 2 years later. Consult an attorney to see if there was a way to toll the statute of limitations in the event you were late.

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional's negligence causes injury to a patient. Incorrect actions and inaction can both be forms of negligence.
