Hawaii Bad Drug Lawsuits & Hawaii Defective Medical Device Cases

Hawaii Bad Drug Lawsuits & Hawaii Defective Medical Device Cases

With the advancements in pharmaceutical medications and medical technology, many products reach the marketplace faster than ever before. However, many of these medications and devices pass quickly through the system before being deemed safe by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Often, the consumer is unaware for years how harmful the medication is that they are taking or the medical device they are using like their hip or knee implant that was implanted years before.

Because of the increasing rate of serious defective product-related injuries, there has been a significant rise in the number of Hawaii bad drug lawsuits and Hawaii defective medical device cases, where victims seek financial compensation from those who caused them harm. The number of cases often rises significantly after a recall of the bad drugs or defective medical device that was forced upon the manufacturer by the FDA or through a voluntary recall by the company.

Even though the consumer might be entitled to file a financial claim for compensation, these cases tend to be highly complex and often require the knowledge of court procedures and a comprehensive understanding of Hawaii tort law. The linked resources listed below can help the victim begin the process by understanding the statute of limitations and through access to valuable resources needed to build a solid successful case.

State of Hawaii Statute of Limitations

Hawaii Civil Statute of Limitations Laws – Hawaii Code Provisions (Section 657-7.3)

It is crucial to understand the Hawaii statute of limitations code which greatly restricts the amount of time every victim suffering a personal injury or families suffering from a wrongful death must file a lawsuit. If the required paperwork is not filed in the appropriate courthouse before the statute of limitations expires, the victim often loses the right to seek the financial compensation their family deserves.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 2 Years
  • Product Liability – 2 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 2 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years “with discovery rule but maximum SOL of 6 years from date of act. 6-year rule does not apply if malpractice was concealed by fraud. Minors: age 10 or within 6 years, whichever is longer.”
  • Intentional Torts – 2 Years
