Statute of Limitations: A statute of limitations refers to the time limit an individual victim has time file a product liability lawsuit against risperdal in the court of law. Failure to file a claim within the statutorily designated time period can eliminate a plaintiffs right to compensation. Every jurisdiction has a different statute of limitations period for defective drug claims. For example the statute of limitations in the state of California is two years from the date of the injury while in the state of Maine the statute of limitations in six years from the date of the accident.

Exceptions to Statute of Limitation – What if the Deadline to File a Lawsuit Has Run Out: In certain situations courts will grant a tolling of a statute of limitations even when the official time period has run out thus allowing for a plaintiff to file a lawsuit in the court of law. Specific instances where courts have allowed for a tolling of a statute of limitations are as follows

  • Physical incapacitation of the victim
  • Mental incapacitation due to severe psychological issues and or mental illness
  • The injury did not manifest itself until a later time
  • The individual was under the age of 18 – generally minors are given a specific time period after their 18th birthday to file a claim in civil court. For example in the state of California minors have two years from the date of their 18th birthday to file a lawsuit in the court of law.
