Fosamax and Legal Compensation
Statutes of Limitations Deadlines Can Mean No Legal Compensation For Fosamax Side Effects Causing Personal Injury or Death
If you experienced serious side effects from the use of Merck's osteoporosis drug Fosamax, or a person died due to an adverse reaction while taking Fosamax, you may have a claim for legal compensation.
Legal compensation claims involving a Fosamax-related disease or death caused by Fosamax are best made by filing an individual lawsuit as opposed to a class action.
Statutes of Limitations for Fosamax Lawsuits
All states have statutes of limitations that determine the time period allowed to file a Fosamax lawsuit. The applicable statute of limitation, or deadline to file claims, varies from state to state, and the personal injury statute of limitation deadline can be different from the wrongful death statute of limitation deadline within the same state. For example, in some states a personal injury claim must be filed within 3 years from the date the Fosamax-related disease or drug interaction is diagnosed, while a wrongful death claim must be filed within 2 years from the date of a death if caused by Fosamax. In some states, the statutes of limitations may be as short as 1 year from the date of diagnosis or death.
Because of these varying deadlines, you seek legal advice and legal representation as soon as possible if you have experienced an adverse side effect involving Fosamax.
