Time Limits for Lawsuits
Lawsuits filed in the U.S. Legal System have an expiration period, or a Statute of Limitation, after which time the injured party is prohibited from filing a case. The statute of limitation is different from state to state and for each type of lawsuit, but generally ranges in time from 2 years to 6 years. Like other cases, there is a Paxil lawsuit time limit or Paxil lawsuit statute of limitations.
Statutes of Limitation are designed to guard people and companies from being exposed to lawsuits forever and to make sure valid lawsuits are filed while evidence and memories are still fresh. If you file your claim within the required time, the Statute of Limitation has no effect on your case.
In the case of Paxil lawsuits or drug injury lawsuits, the statute of limitation usually begins when a person is injured, but in some cases may not start until the injured person discovers, or should have discovered, that the drug caused their injury. This starting point varies from state to state.
Paxil® has been linked to suicide, self mutilation and a variety of severe birth defects including Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension (PPHN), heart, lung, abdominal and cranial defects. If you or a loved one has been affected by any of these conditions or experienced the symptoms associated with them, contact us today for help.
Even if your lawsuit has not expired, it is important to contact a Paxil attorney prior to the date your Statute of Limitations expires. If you wait to contact an attorney until a week or month before your case expires, they may not have proper time to research your case and prepare it for filing. Therefore, there is a greater risk that an attorney will not be able to take your case if you wait.
