Michigan Bad Drug Lawsuits & Michigan Defective Medical Device Cases

Michigan Bad Drug Lawsuits & Michigan Defective Medical Device Cases

The development of many new pharmaceutical medications and advancements in medical device technology has improved the lives of patients in America. The safety and efficiency of these products are assured by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in charge of approving all new medical products brought to the market. Unfortunately, many drugs and medical devices produce extreme adverse reactions and serious side effects to unsuspecting consumers who, as a result, suffer great injury or a premature death.

Families of victims who have suffered at the hands of pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, hospitals, doctors and other healthcare providers are usually left no other option than to file a Michigan bad drug lawsuit, medical malpractice claim, or Michigan defective medical device case to obtain the financial compensation they deserve for their damages.

However, these cases are often complex and require an extensive knowledge of Michigan tort law and the state’s statute of limitations. The links below provide immediate access to many of the resources needed to file a case.

State of Michigan Statute of Limitations

Michigan Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (Section 600.2912b)

The Michigan statute of limitations code greatly restricts the amount of time every victim or surviving family member can file a claim against all pharmaceutical companies, device manufacturers, hospitals and doctors who caused them harm. Any failure to file a lawsuit or claim in the appropriate Michigan courthouse before the statute of limitations expires could strip away the only legal opportunity afforded the victim to obtain a successful financial outcome.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
  • Product Liability – 3 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 3 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years ‘or 6 months from discovery. Maximum 6 years, except if fraud by defendant, or foreign object. In the case of a minor under eight years of age, the statute begins to run on the minor’s 10th birthday or within the two-year statute of limitations, whichever time period is greater. Where a minor under 13 suffers an injury to the reproductive system, the statute begins to run on the minor’s 15th birthday or within the general two-year medical malpractice statute of limitations, whichever time period is greater. Malpractice claims require 182 days prior written notice of claim during which time SOL is tolled. If plaintiff is 13 or under, claim must be filed on or before 15th birthday.’
  • Intentional Torts – 2 Years “except for libel or slander which are 1 year”
