Actos Lawsuit Illinois

by Steve Fields on October 14th, 2011

There is a limited period of time in which to bring Actos lawsuit Illinois claims. This legally prescribed time limit is referred to as a “statute of limitations”. This time limit to file a case prevents a claim from being filed after the designated time has elapsed. If you have been diagnosed or suffered from permanent Actos Bladder Cancer side effects, you may lose the right to bring a claim if your case is not filed before the statutory deadline.

There are several factors that affect the statutory deadlines for filing Actos Bladder Cancer lawsuits including:
• The state where the lawsuit is filed
• The type of injury
• The age of the person bringing the claim
• The state where Actos Bladder Cancer was prescribed

Discovery Rule
