Statute of Limitations for Filing your Claim
YAZ®, YASMIN® AND OCELLA®
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR FILING YOUR CLAIM
If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury as a result of Yaz®, Yasmin® or Ocella® you may be entitled to monetary damages. It is important to understand that any claim for injuries can be barred, and any right to sue would be lost forever, if it is not filed in a timely manner. Laws that set the amount of time an individual has to file a claim are called statutes of limitations.
In essence, a statute of limitation is a law that restricts the period of time, following certain events that an individual is allowed to file a lawsuit. These laws are in place to prevent individuals from waiting an unreasonable amount of time to file a claim. Each state has enacted its own statute of limitation and the time period for filing a claim varies in length from state to state. Cases filed after the deadline set by the statute of limitation may be dismissed by the court.
Generally speaking, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases begins to run as soon as the injury has occurred. In certain, very limited instances the time for filing can be extended however, one of the worst decisions that can be made if you or a loved one has been injured as a result of the use of Yaz®, Yasmin® or Ocella® is to delay in contacting an attorney. The specific date that your statute of limitation begins to run can not be absolutely determined until you have retained an attorney and medical records detailing the injury have been reviewed. Waiting too long to retain an attorney may be an absolute bar to filing a claim.
