How To Get Legal Compensation For Your Drug Side Effects Case
The best way to make a claim for legal compensation for a drug injury or death caused by serious side effects is by filing an individual lawsuit (not a class action).
Each state has a statute of limitations that determines the time period within which one may file a drug injury lawsuit. For example, in some states a personal injury claim must be filed within 1 or 2 years from the date that the side effect is diagnosed. Likewise, some states require that a wrongful death claim be filed within 1 or 2 years from the date of a death which was caused by an adverse drug reaction, drug-drug interaction, or medication error. It is very important to realize that these statutes of limitations, or deadlines, vary from state to state.
Because of these strict filing deadlines, you should not delay in finding a lawyer when you may have a possible case involving a drug injury or death.
