Vermont Bad Drug Lawsuits & Vermont Defective Medical Device Cases
Medical devices and prescription medications have long benefited many patients in the United States by lowering their blood pressure, providing pain relief, improving mobility or regulating heartbeats. While these products are designed to be lifesaving, many have serious side effects and severe adverse reactions, often resulting in catastrophic injuries or premature death. Because of that, victims are often left with no other choice but to file Vermont bad drug lawsuits, medical malpractice recompense claims, wrongful death suits, and Vermont defective medical device cases.
Many lawsuits are based on the patient not being clearly warned about the potential side effects from using the defective product, or the failure to recall the product once it was known to be defective. Victims interested in beginning the process of filing a claim for compensation can use the links to resources listed below.
State of Vermont Statute of Limitations
Vermont Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (§ 512(3))
The Vermont statute of limitations greatly restricts the amount of time that every victim and surviving family member can file a claim or lawsuit against all parties responsible for causing their damages. These cases typically involve medical malpractice, wrongful death, personal injury, negligence, product liability or intentional tort.
Once the statute of limitations has expired, the victims give up all rights to pursue compensation at any time in the future. Because of that, it is essential to hire personal injury attorney who specializes in these types of cases to ensure that all the necessary paperwork is filed in the appropriate courthouse in a timely manner.
- Personal Injury / Negligence – 3 Years
- Product Liability – 3 Years
- Wrongful Death – 2 Years
- Medical Malpractice – 3 Years “from malpractice or within two years of the date that the injury was, or should have been, discovered. In no event, may suit be filed more than seven years (SOR) from the date of the malpractice. If a foreign object is not discovered within the three-year medical malpractice statute of limitations, the plaintiff may file suit within two years of the date that the object was, or should have been, discovered.”
