Lipitor Claim Filing Deadlines
There is a limited period of time in which to file Lipitor lawsuit claims. This legally prescribed time limit is referred to as a “statute of limitations” and varies by state. No new claims can be filed after the statute of limitations elapses.
In addition, the unique circumstances in each Lipitor diabetes claim are complicated and can affect when the statute of limitations clock starts for individual cases. If you have taken this cholesterol medication and have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, we can help you understand the statute of limitations for your state and how they apply to your case.
Our attorneys will review the details of your situation, offer their advice, and help you understand your legal options. There is no cost to talk to our attorneys, and you are under no obligation to hire our law firm. If you do decide to pursue a claim, there are never any fees unless we recover compensation for you.
You have nothing to lose by contacting us today. However, time may be running out and you may lose the right to receive compensation if your claim is not filed before the deadline.
There are several factors that affect the statutory deadlines for filing Lipitor lawsuits in each state, including:
- Whether the patient has died (wrongful death claims)
- When the diabetes was diagnosed
- The state where the medication was prescribed/taken
- The state where the Lipitor lawsuit is filed
In certain situations it isn’t reasonable for a person who has suffered an injury to know what caused their injury until a much later date, sometimes years. For example, a patient taking this medication to manage their cholesterol levels who developed diabetes, might not know that Lipitor may have caused their diabetes until much later.
Statutes of limitations are complex and can be changed at any time by the legislature or courts of the particular state. For a full analysis of any potential legal claims and relevant statutes of limitation, it is important to consult with a lawyer who represents clients in pursuing Lipitor lawsuits.
