Late wife while carrying daughter was hospitalize. She was in ICU for some time due to head injury, when released from hospital she was prescribed Darvocet for pain killer. Darvocet became addicting. We tried rehabs. no luck. Her liver got damaged and died from liver damage (6 months in hospice). Our daughter had some effects. But we did not know that Darvocet had issues. (pre 2009 FDA warning). In other wrong full death where there is an accident (car etc..) there is a time limit Question. Can we file a wrong full death action since we did not know that the medication was the cause? Wife death was when Eli Lilly was selling the product.During the period of wife's illness, death and for some period afterwards, there was no medical and/or legal cases raised about the danger of Darvocet and it was not banned from market until 2010 How could we file legal action when there had been no publications of Darvocet danger. Nor publish that one of side effects could damage the liver nor that there could be side effects on unborn fetus. All of this information came out many years later. If these issues were even slightly know, I am certain the Xanodyne corporation would not have purchased the rights to manufacture, distribute and sell Darvocet from the Eli LIlly pharmacies and few years later be stuck with a number of lawsuits
