North Carolina Bad Drug Lawsuits & North Carolina Defective Medical Device Cases

North Carolina Bad Drug Lawsuits & North Carolina Defective Medical Device Cases

Many medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies believe that profits for the shareholders are more important than safety of the consumer. Because of that, they often bring dangerous or defective products to the marketplace before the results of clinical trials have been fully understood. Even the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) feels the pressure of these large corporations and make decisions that are often detrimental to the health and well-being of patients.

Victims who suffer adverse reactions and serious side effects usually have no other choice than to file North Carolina defective medical device cases, medical malpractice claims, and North Carolina bad drug lawsuits against drug makers, medical device makers, hospitals, doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers. This is because they trusted that these medical devices and prescription medications would improve the quality of their daily living and extend their lives. Alternatively, tens of thousands of individuals suffer serious injuries or die prematurely because of these products.

However, filing a claim or lawsuit against the defendants can be complex and require comprehensive understanding of North Carolina tort law. Because of that, many victims will hire personal injury attorneys who specialize in these types of cases and have access to numerous necessary resources including those listed below.

State of North Carolina Statute of Limitations

North Carolina Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (N.C. Gen. Stat. § 1-15(c))

The North Carolina statute of limitations code limits the amount of time every victim or surviving family member must file a lawsuit against every party at fault for causing their damages. The statute applies to every claim involving negligence, personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, intentional tort or medical malpractice. Any failure to file all the necessary paperwork in time – before the statute of limitations expires – in the appropriate North Carolina courthouse can strip away the victim’s ability to seek their financial recovery.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
  • Product Liability – 6 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 2 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 3 Years “with Discovery Rule (1 year from reasonable discovery), but no more than 4 years from last act, unless foreign object, then 1 year from discovery, never more than 10 years. 1 year if discovered 2 or more years after occurrence. Minors: until age 19.”
  • Intentional Torts – 1 Years
