Is it too late to t file a claim against a pharmaceutical company, and or dr?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Tulsa, OK

Treated in Er in October 2011,with a medicine intravenously, serious adverse side effects immediately following administration of drug. Had no clue it was related to medicine, until later. But I see there is a 2 year statute of limitation regarding filing a claim, had no clue. Been suffering side effects since. I'm assuming i'm not able to file a claim, wondering if there is anyway around this? Thanks much.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Don't assume your statute has expired. An OK attorney can tell you what the statute is and whether it is from date of injury or discovery. In Missouri, the statute is 5 years. I don't know what injuries you have, but seek an experienced attorney in your locality that handles products cases. Call an attorney as soon as possible.
