Virginia Bad Drug Lawsuits & Virginia Defective Medical Device Cases

Virginia Bad Drug Lawsuits & Virginia Defective Medical Device Cases

While medical procedures and prescription drugs are often the only solution for improving a patient’s health, many of these products have been proven to be defective and known to cause specific injuries or premature death. Unfortunately, many pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers fail to warn consumers or fail to recall their defective products before tens of thousands of individuals suffer injury or death.

In recent years, there has been a significant rise in the number of Virginia defective medical device cases, wrongful death suits, medical malpractice claims, and Virginia bad drug lawsuits. These legal cases are filed by victims and surviving family members looking for financial recompense for their damages, losses and injuries.

The links below can help victims begin the process of filing a compensation claim against the defendants in their case. These resources are used by personal injury attorneys who specialize in medical malpractice cases.

State of Virginia Statute of Limitations

Virginia Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (§ 8.01-243(A))

Like every state in the union, Virginia has specific restrictions on the amount of time surviving family members and victims of personal injury can file a claim against every defendant responsible for their harm. Failing to follow the Virginia statute of limitations can strip away the right of the victim to pursue compensation at any time in the future. Because of that, it is crucial to speak with personal injury law firms who specializes in medical malpractice cases to ensure that all necessary paperwork has been filed with the appropriate Virginia courthouse in a timely manner.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 2 Years
  • Product Liability – 2 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 2 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years “Medical malpractice actions must be filed within two years of the malpractice. In the case of minors under the age of eight, the minor has until his or her 10th birthday to file suit. In the case of minors eight and older, suit must be filed within two years of the date that the act giving rise to the injury occurred. In foreign object cases, suit must be filed within one year from the date that the object was, or should have been, discovered. In no event may suit be filed more than 10 years (SOR) from the date that the object was actually inserted. For medical malpractice cases, limits on recovery apply.”
  • Intentional Torts – 1 Year
