Should I Speak with a Lawyer?

Full Disclosure: I'm not a lawyer. Nor am I a doctor. I am a concerned citizen.

If you've been hurt due to the negligence of a pharmaceutical company I think you should speak with a lawyer right away. Why?

Most Attorneys Provide Free Consultations

Most medical malpractice attorneys, who handle pharmaceutical cases like this, will take time to hear your case for free. In fact, many lawyers will not charge you anything unless they win your case for you. So, if you suspect someone you love was harmed by the negligence of a pharmaceutical company, you should speak with a lawyer. They will be better equipped to help you than this little blog.

Most States Have Strict Statues of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Cases

If you suspect your loved-one was harmed due to the negligence of a pharmaceutical company, don't delay in talking with an attorney. The fact is, you might be racing against a clock. Every state has a time limit after which you will not be able to file a medical malpractice case. The reality is, it might be months after someone's death that you even consider someone was negligent. Don't put off speaking with an attorney. Your delay might mean you miss out on justice for your loved one.

Here's the latest information I have about the statute of limitation for medical malpractice in each state:
The statute of limitation (in years) for medical malpractice cases in each state in the United States
But, for such a serious problem, don't believe my infographic. It's better for you to speak with a lawyer sooner than later. This information might be outdated by the time you find it.

It's also important to note that the statute of limitation for medical malpractice cases might be different depending upon the kind of malpractice that has occurred. In some states the statute of limitation varies on the circumstances. These states include:

  • Alabama
  • California
  • Connecticut
  • Florida
  • Hawaii
  • Maryland
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • Nevada
  • North Carolina
  • Ohio
  • Virginia
As an extra level of caution, if you live in one of these states you might only have one year to file a medical malpractice case:
  • California
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Ohio
  • Tennessee

Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes News

The US Food and Drug Administration recently announced a voluntary field action on the Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes, citing possible defects in the product. The voluntary field action for the product was carried out by Physio-Control, one of the leading defibrillator manufacturers in the country, although the product in question was manufactured by Cardinal Health.

The FDA went further to state that these defibrillation electrodes, manufactured by Cardinal Health, don’t have any functional or performance defects. The only problem with these defibrillation electrodes is in their packaging, where the manufacturer displays the incorrect electrode placement on the infant’s body. These defibrillation electrodes are part of the components of Cardinal Health’s Lifepak automated external defibrillators.
