Are there exceptions in the nursing home abuse statute of limitations?

There are exceptions to the statute of limitations in a nursing home abuse case if:

  • The plaintiff was not in a mental or physical condition to file a claim due to injuries incurred from the abuse and neglect
  • The injury from the abuse or neglect was recognizable only later. The statute of limitations period will then apply only from the time the plaintiff first knew or ought to have known about the outcome of the injury.
  • The defendant is found guilty of fraudulent concealment or intentional misrepresentation of the case
