Maryland Bad Drug Lawsuits & Maryland Defective Medical Device Cases

The pharmaceutical and medical device industries have brought many new products to the market to alleviate the symptoms of common ailments and medical problems, which often improve the patient’s health or extend their life. Unfortunately, many of these products have serious adverse side effects, which often leave the patient with additional injuries, declining health or a premature death. Usually, the victim is left with no other option than to file a Maryland bad drug lawsuit, medical malpractice claim, or Maryland defective medical device case against those who caused them harm.

The links below provide immediate access to much-needed resources to determine whether you have a valid case for financial compensation. This includes Maryland statute of limitations, medical resources, legal resources, state and local bar associations and access to quality legal services.

State of Maryland Statute of Limitations

Maryland Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (Section § 5-109)

The Maryland statute of limitations code restricts the amount of time a victim or surviving family members can file a claim against the pharmaceutical company, medical device manufacturer, hospital, doctor, or other health care provider. Failing to file the necessary paperwork in the appropriate timeframe – before the statute of limitations expires – could take away the only legal opportunity victim or surviving family member has at seeking the compensation they deserve.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
  • Product Liability – 3 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 3 Years ‘from date of death unless caused by occupational disease whereupon shorter of 10 years from death or 3 years from time the cause of death is discovered. (Note: A Maryland appellate court has ruled that a widow’s wrongful death action was timely if she was unaware that her late husband’s mesothelioma was caused by asbestos exposure).’
  • Medical Malpractice – 5 Years “from injury or 3 years from discovery. If plaintiff under 11, period commences on 11th birthday unless damage is to reproductive system or by foreign object and then it commences at age 16.”
  • Intentional Torts – 1 Years
