Whether you have had a knee replacement, a pacemaker, an organ transplant, or something else, there is a chance that you will suffer from a malfunction due to negligence. If that happens, you can file a medical products liability claim. It’s important that you understand how this works before moving forward. That way, you can work with Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath to win your case.
Statute of Limitations
Time is of the essence if you are going to file a claim. In the state of Florida, you have four years to file your claim. The clock starts ticking as soon as you suffer an injury from the medical product. Don’t wait until the last minute to meet with Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath. Give us time to prepare a case so we can file it in a timely manner. Otherwise, we will be under a time crunch as we gather evidence and prepare your claim.
Once we file with the courts, the responding party has a 12-year statute of repose. There are exceptions to this rule, though. Your lawyer will go over the various exceptions and explain what to expect with your case.
Malpractice or Product Liability?
It’s also important to understand if you have a product liability or medical malpractice case. We cover both options, and we will go over them with you. You want to make sure you follow the right claim the first time to improve your chances of winning. You will file a product liability if there was an issue with the product and a medical malpractice if there was an issue with the doctor. Talk with someone from Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath to find out which type of claim you should file.
