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

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

The serious adverse effects and severe side effects of dangerous drugs and defective medical devices cause significant injuries and claim the lives of many patients in America every year. Pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers of medical devices like hip implants and vaginal mesh are held to the highest rigorous standards to assure the consumer that their products are safe. Even so, many of these companies pressure the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to bring these products to market long before they have been deemed safe through clinical trials.

Patients who suffer serious complications and family members of loved ones who have been lost due to negligence usually have no other choice than to file South Dakota defective medical device cases, wrongful death lawsuits, medical malpractice claims, and South Dakota bad drug cases. However, these cases are complex and a successful outcome is not always guaranteed. Because of that, victims often hire personal injury attorneys who have access to all the necessary resources, like those listed below.

State of South Dakota Statute of Limitations

South Dakota Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (Section 15-2-14.1)

If you suffered injury or lost a loved one through negligence, you likely can file a claim for compensation against every party who caused your damages. However, the South Dakota statute of limitations restricts the amount of time you must pursue compensation through a lawsuit. Failing to file the claim within the designated time limit will usually bar you from pursuing the claim in the future, regardless of its merits.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
  • Product Liability – 3 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 3 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years “with Discovery Rule. SOL extended by continuous treatment. In the case of a minor under six, the child has two years after his or her sixth birthday to file a medical malpractice action. In the case of minors six and older, the minor must file suit within three years of the malpractice.”
  • Intentional Torts – 2 Years
