In SC and NC, you generally have 3 years to file a medical malpractice claim. There are some exceptions in cases where the injury is "discovered" sometime later. For wrongful death claims, the statute of limitations is generally 2 years. For more specific guidance in your particular case, you should consult with a local attorney in your area.
