How long do I have to file a lawsuit related to the eye drop recall?

Understanding the timeline for filing a lawsuit related to the eye drop recall is essential for protecting your legal rights. While the time limits for filing a lawsuit can vary by state, here are some general guidelines to help you understand the process:

  • Statute of Limitations: The statute of limitations is a law that sets a deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit. This deadline can vary depending on the state in which you reside or where the injury occurred. Typically, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases ranges from one to six years. It’s crucial to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to determine the exact deadline for your specific case.
  • Starting the Clock: In many cases, the statute of limitations begins when the injury is discovered or reasonably should have been discovered. For eye drop recall cases, this might be the date you became aware of the recall, experienced adverse effects, or were diagnosed with an injury or condition related to the recalled product.
  • Tolling: In some instances, the statute of limitations can be “tolled” or paused under certain circumstances, such as if the injured party is a minor or mentally incapacitated. An attorney can provide more information on whether any tolling provisions apply to your case.
