Massachusetts Bad Drug Lawsuits & Massachusetts Defective Medical Device Cases

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) usually recalls pharmaceutical medications and medical devices only after the products have caused significant harm or adverse effects to hundreds if not thousands of patients. Usually, the victims have no other option than to file a Massachusetts bad drug lawsuit, medical malpractice claim, or Massachusetts defective medical device case against the pharmaceutical company, medical device manufacturer, hospital and/or doctor responsible for the victim’s damages.

However, these cases tend to be highly complex and often require the skills of a competent attorney with years of experience and a comprehensive understanding of Massachusetts tort law. The list below provides links to valuable resources for victims determining whether the victim has a valid claim for compensation. This includes the Massachusetts statute of limitations, legal resources, medical resources, State Bar Associations and access to quality legal services.

State of Massachusetts Statute of Limitations

Massachusetts Civil Statute of Limitations Laws – Code Prov. (Mass. Gen. Laws Ch. 260, § 4)

It is important understand the Massachusetts statute of limitations code which greatly restricts the amount of time victims or their surviving family members can file a lawsuit for compensation claim against every party at fault for their injuries. Any failure to file the required documentation in the appropriate Massachusetts courthouse could strip away the only opportunity the victim or surviving family members have to obtain recompense.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
  • Product Liability – 3 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 3 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 3 Years ‘with Discovery Rule. Maximum of 7 years after injury, unless foreign object involved and then SOL runs from when object is, or should have been, discovered.’
