Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations for a medical malpractice case in New Mexico is three years. The expiration date to bring your case to court is based on the date of the injury. It is difficult, however, to determine the statute of limitations for an injury that may not be apparent for a significant amount of time after it occurred.” In cases involving a child under the age of six, the statute of limitations expires on the child’s ninth birthday. So, in instances where a child is injured at birth, the parents have approximately nine years to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
