Nexium bone fracture lawsuit Statute of Limitations

The length of time an injure party has to sue for harm cause by the taking of defective drugs will depend on the specific jurisdiction where the harm took place most likely the place of residence of the injured plaintiff. Jurisdictions and the states and territories they serve have different statute of limitation laws. For example a defective drug injury claim in the state of California will have to be filed within two years of the time of the injury. However Statute of Limitation Laws may not be as simple as you might think, in certain instanced a statute can be  tolled or suspended.  Below are two examples which may shed light. Example #1: Client takes Nexium in 2001 and suffers a hip fracture in 2010. Prior to the injury the plaintiff had no prior history or knowledge that Nexium was the cause of bone fracture. This allows them 2 years from 2010, (or the date of the discovery of the cause of the bone fracture) to file a lawsuit for their injuries. Even though they took Nexium in 2001 the statute won’t begin to run until they have knowledge of the injury. Example #2: Client is given a prescription for Nezuim 2005 and suffers a debilitating head injury preventing him ability to file a claim or seek legal assistance for her injuries until 2011. In such cases the statute will be “tolled”. A statute can be tolled or stopped when there is a serious medical impairment. In this case the statute can likely be tolled due to the clients medical or health issues.
