I’m sorry to hear about your experience with a defective drug. Although overall the drug supply in the U.S. is very safe, defective drugs are responsible for countless numbers of death and serious side effects every year in the U.S.
If you have been injured by a defective drug, time limits on making a claim do apply. Virtually every case has a legal statute of limitations, or a time period in which a lawsuit must be filed. Medical lawsuits and the applicable statute of limitations can be complicated, however. You may not have realized what caused your medical issue until after the statute of limitations has expired, or your medical issues may not arise until years after you have taken the drug. An attorney can help you sort through your legal options and legal rights.
If you have an adverse reaction to any drug, you should speak with an attorney. In many cases, there are lawsuits ongoing related to that drug that you may be eligible to join, or you may wish to sue the drug company individually. In some cases, the dangerous drug has not been recalled yet, and your attorney may need to research your situation to see if you potentially have a valid claim.
The bottom line is that lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies over dangerous prescription drugs are very complex, and you need an attorney with experience in dangerous and defective drug litigation who can help.
