Oregon Bad Drug Lawsuits & Oregon Defective Medical Device Cases

Oregon Bad Drug Lawsuits & Oregon Defective Medical Device Cases

Pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers often rush their products to the market to begin generating profits immediately. Even the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) feels pressure to ensure that these products are available as quickly as possible, which is often detrimental to the health and well-being of the patient using the drug or device. In fact, many patients suffer catastrophic injuries or premature death from using these products, because they were never warned of the serious side effects or adverse reactions.

In recent years, the number of Oregon defective medical device cases, wrongful death lawsuits, medical malpractice claims, and Oregon bad drug lawsuits have been on the rise. The suits have been filed by victims and surviving family members who usually have no other option than to seek financial recompense for their damages by the individuals and entities responsible for causing their harm.

Even so, these cases are often very complex and take years to resolve. Personal injury attorneys who specialize in medical malpractice and product liability claims are usually successful because they have access to all the necessary resources, like those listed below.

State of Oregon Statute of Limitations

Oregon Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (Section 12.110)

Even though it may be months, weeks or years before a patient realizes that they received substandard medical care, the Oregon statute of limitations code still restricts the amount of time the victim has to file a lawsuit or claim for compensation against every party responsible for their damages. However, in Oregon, the statute of limitations on medical malpractice follows the Discovery Rule, to help protect victims of bad drugs and defective medical devices who were unaware they were harmed until long after the damage occurred.

Even so, the victim has a legal responsibility to start the process by filing all the necessary paperwork in the appropriate Oregon courthouse before the statute of limitations expires. If they fail to do so, they give up their right to seek any financial compensation in future years.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 2 Years
  • Product Liability – 2 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 3 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years “with Discovery Rule but, action must be commenced within 5 years of date of act unless delay is due to fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation, and then, action must be commenced within 2 years of when such is, or should have been, discovered.”
  • Intentional Torts – 2 Years
