Is there a Washington medical malpractice statute of limitations?

Yes. A Washington medical malpractice suit must be filed no later than three years after the injury is caused, or one year after the injury is discovered, whichever comes last. In the case of a military hospital claim, the statute of limitations is two years after the injury is discovered or should have been discovered.
