Mississippi Bad Drug Lawsuits & Mississippi Defective Medical Device Cases

Mississippi Bad Drug Lawsuits & Mississippi Defective Medical Device Cases

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will usually recall a prescription medication or medical device only after it poses a significant severity of danger to consumers. However, by this time, there are usually hundreds or thousands of victims who have either died prematurely (wrongful death) or suffered serious adverse reactions and side effects to the drug or medical device. Typically, the victim is left with few options other than to file Mississippi bad drug lawsuits, medical malpractice claims, and Mississippi defective medical device cases against the pharmaceutical company, medical device manufacturer, hospitals, doctors and other health care providers.

However, these cases are complex and often require the skills of a reputable attorney who has a comprehensive understanding of Mississippi tort law. Below are the much-needed resource links that provide valuable information including the state statute of limitations and access to medical resources, legal resources and legal services.

State of Mississippi Statute of Limitations

Mississippi Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (§ 15-1-36)

It’s important for victims and surviving family members to understand the Mississippi statute of limitations code which greatly restricts the amount of time they must file a lawsuit or claim against all those who caused them harm. The state requires that all necessary paperwork be filed in the appropriate Mississippi courthouse before the state statute of limitations expires. Otherwise, the plaintiff will lose their only legal opportunity to file a claim for compensation. An attorney can determine the merits of the case and whether there is adequate time to file the paperwork.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
  • Product Liability – 2 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 3 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years ‘with Discovery Rule (including wrongful death), but no more than 7 years after occurrence. These time limits apply to minors six and older. In the case of minors under six years of age, medical malpractice actions must be filed within two years of the date of the child’s sixth birthday. Mississippi also requires all persons who intend to file a medical malpractice action to give a 60-day written notice of action to the defendant.’
  • Intentional Torts – 1 Years
