Utah Bad Drug Lawsuits & Utah Defective Medical Device Cases
Even though recent advancements in technology in the pharmaceutical and medical device industry industries have saved lives, bad drugs, defective hip implants and other malfunctioning medical devices are responsible for the injury and death of thousands of patients nationwide. New drugs and medical devices are rushed to the market every year after receiving quick approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), but often before the results of their clinical trials are understood.
Victims injured by these defective products usually have no other alternative than to file Utah bad drug lawsuits, wrongful death claims, medical malpractice suits, and Utah defective medical device cases in the hope of receiving the financial compensation they deserve for their damages.
The linked information below provides valuable resources for initiating a suit against the pharmaceutical company, medical device manufacturer, hospital, doctor, and other health care providers.
State of Utah Statute of Limitations
Utah Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (Section 78B-3-404)
Like every state, Utah laws restrict the amount of time every victim with a valid personal injury case can file a claim or lawsuit against all parties at fault. If the victim fails to follow the Utah statute of limitations, they could lose their right to pursue a claim for compensation in the future.
- Personal Injury / Negligence – 2 Years
- Product Liability – 2 Years
- Wrongful Death – 2 Years
- Medical Malpractice – 2 Years “with Discovery Rule (1 year from act) but never more than 4 years from occurrence. Actions against health-care providers must be filed within two years of the malpractice or within two years from the date the injury was, or should have been, discovered. In no event, may a person file a medical malpractice action more than four years from the date of the act giving rise to the injury. These time limitations also apply to minors under 18. In foreign object cases, suit must be filed within one year of insertion of the object or within one year from the date the plaintiff discovered, or should have discovered, the object. These time limitations also apply to minors under 18. Various rules apply to amount of recovery.”
