You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your legal rights and remedies. If a lawsuit is not filed within a certain period of time (within the statute of limitations), the claim is barred regardless of its merit under Minnesota law.
Another issue is the expert affidavit. Before commencement of a lawsuit, the party bringing the claim must provide a written document signed by a medical expert confirming that medical malpractice was probably committed and that it was a direct cause of the claimant’s injuries. The format and timing of the affidavit are critical.
