How long do I have to file an Actos Lawsuit?Every case has what is known as a timely filing deadline. What this means is that you have a certain amount of time to file the case. If the case is not filed within the set period of time then you are prohibited from bringing forward your claim. Actos injury lawsuits must be filed within 1 to 2 years from the date of notice. This time period depends on your state. Notice refers to when you had knowledge of the injury. For example if you started taking Actos in 2007 and were diagnosed with bladder cancer or kidney failure in 2010, you would have 2 years from your diagnosis. However, in certain cases patients are not told of the cause of the injury. Many patients are unaware that the cause of the bladder cancer or kidney failure is a result of taking Actos. In such cases it is possible to argue around the certain timing issues relating to your claim.
What if I learned about Actos lawsuits through a commercial?Today numerous commercials are informing takers of Actos to seek legal representation for their injuries. Many times Actos users are unaware that their medical issues are a result of taking the drug. And only after watching the TV commercials to they inquire into this matter. In such cases it is likely that there was no notice and the statute would be “tolled”. Tolling of a statute occurs when there are certain circumstances that prohibit invoking your rights. Lack of knowledge would be considered tolling factor, so long as it was reasonable.
