Connecticut Bad Drug Lawsuits & Connecticut Defective Medical Device Cases
Approximately half of the American population takes prescription medications, and of those, 20 percent take five pills or more each day. The amount of prescription medications in the development of new ones have changed the way we live our lives. Pharmaceutical lobbyists pressure the federal government through the FDA for quicker approvals, often, before the drug has been deemed safe through clinical trials, leading consumers to file for compensation in Connecticut medical device and drug recall lawsuits because of injury.
The resource links listed below can provide valuable assistance when it is time to file a Connecticut drug recall/medical device lawsuit or claim for compensation.
State of Connecticut Statute of Limitations
It is important to understand the Connecticut statute of limitations code before filing a claim for compensation. State law limits the amount of time any victim of medical malpractice, bad drug or defective product from filing a claim against every party responsible for their injuries. In Connecticut, victims have two years to file a claim. Because of that, it is essential to speak to an attorney right away to ensure you maintain your legal rights to pursue a lawsuit, claim or case before the time expires.
The Connecticut statute of limitations involving malpractice, bad medications and effective medical devices include:
- Personal Injury / Negligence – 2 Years
- Product Liability – 2 Years
- Intentional Torts – 2 Years
- Wrongful Death – 2 Years “from date of death but no more than 5 years from date of act complained of”
- Medical Malpractice – 2 Years “from date of injury or discovery, but no more than 3 years from date of malpractice”
