Our firms have been retained to represent one of the victims of Nurse Michael Bragg, who secretly recorded hundreds of patients while working at UPMC Carlisle Hospital in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. If you have been victimized by Michael Bragg, there are some important legal concepts that you need to know.
In Pennsylvania there is a deadline to file suit referred to as a statute of limitations. A chart below contains the various deadlines for different kinds of cases in this state. For cases like this, there would be a two year deadline. However, Pennsylvania also applies what is called the discovery rule. Under certain circumstances, this rule tolls the deadline to file suit until the claimant learns or had reason to learn of the injury or harm at issue. However, this rule applies on a case by case basis and it is important that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible to make sure that your legal interests are safeguarded.
