Georgia Bad Drug Lawsuits & Georgia Defective Medical Device Case

Pharmaceutical companies and mechanical device (hip and joint implant) manufacturers have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of the consumer against any potentially destructive and dangerous side effect. Unfortunately, many of these companies will place corporate profits ahead of consumer safety, which often leads to significant injury to the victim. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is in charge of approving medication and device products, the manufacturers often place significant pressure on the agency in an effort to bring their products to market as quickly as possible by often sidestepping the safety process of extensive clinical trials.

The legal resources listed below can help victims begin the process of filing Georgia defective medical device lawsuit or Georgia bad drug compensation claim.

State of Georgia Statute of Limitations

Georgia Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (Section 9-3-70)

The Georgia statute of limitations code restricts the amount of time the victim can file a lawsuit or claim for compensation against every party who caused them harm. These laws are designed to ensure prospective plaintiffs are given a reasonable amount of time to bring their case to court. However, failing to file all the necessary paperwork in the appropriate Georgia courthouse before the expiration of the statute of limitations can take away the opportunity the victim has at seeking recompense for their damages.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 2 Years
  • Product Liability – 2 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 2 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years “from date of death or injury or 1 year from discovery of foreign object. No more than 5 years from act. Minors: 2 years from age 5 if action arose before 5th birthday.”
  • Intentional Torts – 1 Years
