Is there a time limit by when I have to file my Invokana lawsuit?

Is there a time limit by when I have to file my Invokana lawsuit?All states have time limits on when you have to bring a lawsuit if you have been injured including after a medication such as Invokana. These time limits are called statute of limitations. If you do not bring your cases against the responsible party-including manufacturers, distributers, sales agents, pharmacies, doctors, etc.-within this period then you can never sue them for your injuries. Here are the relevant statute of limitations in Illinois:

  • 2 years if you are injured because of a product from the date when you knew or should have known about the injury. See 735 Ill. Comp. Stat. 5/13-205 (2010); see also 735 Ill. Comp. Stat. 5/13-213(d) (2010)
  • 5 years if you have property damage because of a product. See 735 Ill. Comp. Stat. 5/13-202 (2010).
  • In no case can the suit be brought more than 12 years from when it was first sold. 735 ILCS 5/13-213(b) (2010).
  • In no case can the suit be brought more than 10 years from when it was given to the first owner. 735 ILCS 5/13-213(b) (2010).

Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User

This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa, Avvo User
