Time to File Depends on the Date of Injury
Statutes of limitations are state laws that require plaintiffs to file their cases within set time periods. Because all defective medical device lawsuits are tort claims, they are covered by state law and not federal law. Any medical device lawsuits before U.S. District Courts are claims brought under state law by plaintiffs from states other than the ones in which the manufacturers are located. The purpose of statutes of limitations is to encourage injured parties to bring their claims in a timely manner to prevent courts from dealing with old records and hazy memories.
The amount of time a statute of limitations gives someone to file a claim depends on the type of claim the plaintiff is filing. Commonly, the limitations period for products liability cases is two or three years from the date of injury. When the injury occurred matters significantly from a legal standpoint. Sometimes, the injury “occurs” the day the vaginal mesh was implanted; other times it “occurs” when the plaintiff first knew or could have reasonably found out about the injury. This can be troubling for vaginal mesh recipients because the pain and symptoms of mesh erosion might not occur until long after the initial procedure. Because some women might have already had their vaginal mesh problems resolved years ago and didn’t meet with a Vaginal mesh lawyer, the statute of limitations might have already expired for them, and they will be unable to obtain compensation via a transvaginal mesh lawsuit. If you are having complications ffrom a vaginal mesh it is in your best interests not to wait and file with a lawyer immediately. You must not run the risk of losing your rights to file a lawsuit. The vaginal mesh complications are sever and the mesh implants are ruining lives. You Must send a message and contact a lawyer today. 1 877 522-2123
