How long do I have to file a Depakote lawsuit?
If your child has been diagnosed with a birth injury that is thought to have been caused by Depakote, you will have a limited amount of time to file a claim to pursue compensation. This period of time is known as the statute of limitations. Every state has its own statute of limitations on medical liability, and they run between one and 10 years. Since there is considerable variation between the laws in each state, you need to be aware of your state’s specific laws.
Though this is sure to be a difficult time for you and your family, it is likely in your best interests to file a lawsuit as early on after your child’s diagnosis as possible. At Williams Kherkher, our legal team knows just how much will be at stake for your family with this claim, and we can help you take legal action.
