Yaz Lawsuit Statute of Limitations – Filing Birth Control Claims


Yaz is a prescription contraceptive birth control manufactures by Bayer Pharmaceuticals that has been associated with dangerous life threatening medical complications including  heart attacks, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, blood clots, and pulmonary embolism. In many instances however victims of defective pharmaceutical products such as Yaz are not able to receive the compensation they are entitled too because the Statute of Limitations for filing their case has run out. The statute of limitations for product liability  claims vary based on the jurisdiction where the injury took place, the age of the plaintiff the, specific cause of the injury and whether there is any reason to toll (or hold in time) the statute.

How Long Do I have to File a Yaz Lawsuit:

Depending on the state or jurisdiction in which you reside the time limitations can be different. For Example a Product Liability cause do action in the state of California is generally 2 years from the date of the date of the injury or the date where the victim has knowledge of the injury taking place. However in the State of Main a plaintiff has 6 years from the date of the injury to file a claim against manufacturers of defective pharmaceutical products.

What if I live in a different state?

Most product liability cases dealing with defective drug side-effects including Yaz are handled in Federal Court not State Courts. Cases handled in Federal Court are not based on jurisdiction. Thus for Examples this allows an attorney from California to represent a client any other state in the Nation. In such a case our offices coordinate with you and obtain permission to access necessary medical data in order to evaluate and analyze your case. After analyzing the facts and details pertaining to your case, we will file with the proper Federal Court and begin pursuing your case. It is important that you keep all medical records, prescriptions, names of doctors and hospitals you have visited for review.

MILLIONS RECOVERED FOR OUR CLIENTS

DTLA Client Review

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about Farid. I never even truly became his client, as in I never paid him a single cent, and he helped me get my case settled with my current lawyer. I had accidentally contacted Farid’s firm in an attempt to contact my lawyer, who had ignored me for months. Farid contacted me himself within minutes of me talking to a live representative of theirs online (and this was really late at night, too).”
