When a Cause of Action Accrues


Question: Does it begin at the time of discovery?

Answer: Right, depending on the case it can either begin to accrue at the time of injury or later – when a reasonable person would have discovered the injury. For an action for medical malpractice (in Wisconsin), an action can be brought within EITHER (i) three years of the malpractice; (ii) one year of claimant’s discovery (based on reasonableness); or, (iii) within one year that claimant discovered foreign object was inserted into his or her body during the operation.
