Statute of Limitations for Filing a St. Jude Heart Valve Lawsuit

Statute of  Limitations for Filing a St. Jude Heart Valve Lawsuit In 1998 all St. Jude mechanical heart valves were recalled due to serious medical complication caused by the use of defectively designed silzone annuloplasty rings. According to numerous scientific studies conducted over the past two decades the use of the St. Jude heart valve can result in a significantly increased rate of paravalvular leaks leading to valve explants. Heart valve leaks can result in strokes, pulmonary embolism, blood clots and death. Claims against manufacturers of defective surgical implants are entitled to monetary compensation for all harms suffered. However such claims must be filed within a specific time period designated by the statute of limitations laws of the jurisdiction where the case is to be tried in. Failure to file a claim with the statutory filing deadline will extinguish any rights to compensation under the law.

Are there Exceptions to The Mandatory Filing Deadline – Tolling of the Statute

Tolling of the statute take place when an injured individual has a valid basis for not being able to file a claim within the time period allocated by the statute of limitations. There are several common instances where the statute of limitations can be tollled in defective product cases. 1. Mental or physical incapacitation of the injure party to such an extent so that the claimant did not have the capability to file a claim. 2. The injuries to the transplant patient did not manifest themselves until years after the implantation procedure had taken place. 3. Minor status of the victims – in most jurisdictions minors, individuals under the age of 18, a certain time after their 18th birthday to file a claim against liable parties.
