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

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

The serious side effects and adverse reactions of dangerous drugs and defective medical devices are often severe, and at times, deadly. This is because many pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers rush their products to market by pressuring the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the hopes of generating profits even before clinical trials concerning the product’s safety can be fully evaluated and understood.

The giant corporations’ desire to prioritize profits over consumer safety often causes significant catastrophic injuries to patients, and at times, their premature death. Victims and surviving family members are often left with no other choice than to file South Carolina medical device cases, medical malpractice claims, wrongful death claims, and South Carolina bad drug lawsuits, seeking financial recovery further losses, damages and injuries.

However, these cases are complex and often require the skills of competent personal injury law firms who specialize in these types of cases and have access to all necessary resources, like those links below.

State of South Carolina Statute of Limitations

South Carolina Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (S.C. Code § 15‑36‑100)

Individuals filing a claim for compensation against defendants in a lawsuit must follow the South Carolina statute of limitations that restricts the amount of time they have. These time-limited claims involve negligence, product liability, intentional tort, personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice. Fortunately, the law does allow for the Discovery Rule in medical malpractice cases, because many victims are unaware that they have suffered injury until many years after the damage has occurred.

However, failing to follow the law and instead filing a claim after the expiration of the statute  limitations takes away any opportunity for the victim to file a case for recompense in the future.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
  • Product Liability – 3 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 3 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 3 Years “with Discovery Rule but not to exceed 6 years (SOR)from date of occurrence. Foreign object: 2 years from discovery but minimum [statute of limitation] is 3 years from placement. Minors: Maximum toll is 7 years or 1 year after reaching majority.”
  • Intentional Torts – 2 Years
