New York Bad Drug Lawsuits & New York Defective Medical Device Cases

New York Bad Drug Lawsuits & New York Defective Medical Device Cases

Patients rely on the advancements of pharmaceutical medications and medical devices more than ever before. Unfortunately, many of the companies that manufacture these products prioritize their profits over consumer safety, which is often detrimental to the health and well-being of the patient. In many cases, the patient becomes a victim of a product that was rushed to market before adequate testing of the device or medication has been completed. Often, the company pressures the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve the product even before the information derived by clinical trials have been fully understood.

Because of that, victims are usually forced to file New York defective medical device cases, medical malpractice claims, and New York bad drug lawsuits to seek the financial compensation their family deserves for their losses, injuries and damages.

The initial steps of filing a formal lawsuit against large corporations, hospitals, doctors and other health care providers begins with assessing the merits of the case and determining when the New York statute of limitations began. The links list below can help better understand how to move forward.

State of New York Statute of Limitations

New York Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (§ 214-a)

While every victim of a personal injury with a provable case is provided the opportunity to seek financial recompense against all responsible parties, the New York statute of limitations code limits the amount of time they must file their claim or lawsuit. This includes cases based on negligence, personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, intentional tort or medical malpractice. Failing to file the necessary paperwork in the appropriate New York courthouse before the statute of limitations expires would forfeit the opportunity the victim has to obtain compensation from all parties involved.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
  • Product Liability – 2 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 2 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2.5 Years “2 1/2 years (3 years for other professional malpractice [legal, etc.]). Tolled for foreign object or continuous treatment. Statute runs from end of continuous treatment or discovery of foreign object [1 year]. *If the malpractice is fraudulently concealed, [statute of limitations] is 6 years from when fraud is, or should have been, discovered. Infants: tolled, but not to exceed 10 years.”
  • Intentional Torts – 1 Years
