Q
What is the statute of limitations for a defective drug case?

A

North Carolina law allows people who were affected by defective drugs to file suit up to three years from the date of the injury and up to two years after a wrongful death. Another legal deadline to be aware of is referred to as "the statute of repose," which requires that a defective medication product claim is made within 12 years of its initial sale. This statute of limitations is limited to six years if the claim involves real estate.
