Nebraska Bad Drug Lawsuits & Nebraska Defective Medical Device Cases

Medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies continuously make improvements and developments in providing the best products to improve a patient’s quality of life. Unfortunately, some companies are more focused on generating profits than ensuring consumer safety and the efficiency of the products they sell. Often, patients become victims of bad drugs and defective devices including substandard hip implants and have no other choice than to file Nebraska bad drug lawsuits, medical malpractice claims, and Nebraska defective medical device cases.

However, filing a lawsuit or claim for compensation is highly complex and requires a knowledgeable understanding of Nebraska tort laws. The list below can assist victims in the initial steps of filing a lawsuit through the understanding the state’s statute of limitations and access to medical resources, legal resources and the availability of legal assistance by competent personal injury attorneys.

State of Nebraska Statute of Limitations

Nebraska Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (Neb. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 25-222)

It is important for every victim’s surviving family member filing a lawsuit for compensation to understand the Nebraska statute of limitations code. This code limits the amount of time a plaintiff can file a claim for compensation against pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, hospitals, doctors, nurses and other health care providers. Any failure to file the necessary paperwork in the appropriate court house within a timely manner, before the statute of limitations expires, forfeits the victim’s ability to seek financial recompense for their damages.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 4 Years
  • Product Liability – 4 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 2 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years “If the injury is not discovered within the two-year period, then the action must be filed within one year from the date that the injury was, or should have been, discovered, whichever is earlier. In no event, may a medical malpractice action be filed more than 10 years after the act giving rise to the injury occurred.”
  • Intentional Torts – 1 Years
