Suppose the statute of limitations for a particular state is 3 years and the age of
majority in that state is 21. If you have medical records for a 13-year-old girl, how
long should you maintain them?
A. 3 years C. Until she’s 21
B. 8 years D. Until she’s 24
I think the answer is D
D look at this
one Minors present a special problem because the statute of limitations
doesn’t begin to run until they’re adults. For example,
suppose a 5-year-old boy has a potential malpractice claim.
The statute of limitations in his state is two years, and the
age of majority (when a person becomes an adult) is 18. In
this case, the statute wouldn’t run out until the boy was
20 years old
D- until she's 24 ( correct answer)
