Pennsylvania Bad Drug Lawsuits & Pennsylvania Defective Medical Device Cases

Pennsylvania Bad Drug Lawsuits & Pennsylvania Defective Medical Device Cases

Prescription medications and medical devices including artificial hips and knees are brought to the marketplace to make the lives of patients much better. Unfortunately, many of the same products are known to cause serious harm and premature death. While many patients are under the assumption that their doctor and the FDA (food and drug administration) have their safety and concern in mind, patients still suffer serious injuries and life-threatening changes to their health.

Pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers have long placed profits ahead of consumer safety, even though they have a moral legal responsibility to do otherwise. Individuals who are harmed by dangerous drugs or defective medical devices have a legal right to file a Pennsylvania defective medical device case, wrongful death suit, medical malpractice claim, or Pennsylvania bad drug lawsuit against every individual or entity that is responsible for causing the harm.

However, it is the duty of the victim to prove that the defendants in the case are legally responsible for their negligence. Because of that, the victims often hire personal injury attorneys who specialize in these types of cases and have access to every available resource that is necessary to ensure a successful outcome to the lawsuit.

State of Pennsylvania Statute of Limitations

Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (Section 5524 – Title 42)

Taking a wait-and-see attitude to file a lawsuit or claim for compensation against every party responsible for causing your harm through medical malpractice, product liability, negligence, personal injury, wrongful death or intentional tort is likely not the best idea. This is because the Pennsylvania statute of limitations restricts the amount of time you can bring a claim to court by filing all the necessary paperwork in a timely manner, before the statute of limitations expires.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 2 Years
  • Product Liability – 2 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 2 Years “The statute of limitations on survival action begins to run when the decedent, and not his representatives, could have discovered his injury and its cause through the exercise of reasonable diligence. The discovery rule is not needed in a wrongful death case to prevent the statute of limitations from working an injustice on a reasonably diligent plaintiff. Principle that limitations period for bringing wrongful death and survival actions was not to be extended by discovery rule did not violate remedies, due process, and equal protection clauses of the State Constitution nor the privileges and immunities, due process, and equal protection.”
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years
  • Intentional Torts – 2 Years
