Lipitor Lawsuit Ohio Statute of Limitations
Written by Steve Fields on June 10, 2013
Lipitor lawsuit claims in Ohio may only be made for a limited period of time. This time limit is referred to as a “statute of limitations,” and prevents a claim from being filed after the legally designated time has elapsed.
If you or a loved one were diagnosed with diabetes after taking Lipitor you could lose the right to bring a claim if your case is not filed before the statutory deadline.
There are several factors that affect the statutory deadlines for filing Lipitor lawsuits in Ohio including:
- Whether the patient has died (wrongful death claims)
- When the diabetes was diagnosed
- The state where Lipitor was prescribed/taken
- The state where the lawsuit is filed
Ohio Lawsuit Statute of Limitations
Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 2305.03 et
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. For example, a patient taking Lipitor who developed diabetes might not know that Lipitor may have caused their diabetes until much later.
