Dear Hillsboro Woman,
I'm not sure I understand what all happened to you and who you think is at fault. However, Oregon law has two key time limitations for medical malpractice against nongovernmental doctors.
1. A person must file a lawsuit within 2 year of the time a person should have known of the potential claim. (Statute of Limitations)
2. A person must file a medical malpractice lawsuit within 5 years of the date of the physician's act or omission that caused your loss, regardless of when you discover the potential claim. (Statute of Repose)
