The upcoming September 30th deadline to file lawsuits involving Vioxx claims has Texas plaintiffs’ firms busy reviewing medical records and preparing for the last minute court filings. Attorneys and support staff in our office are working hard to make contacts and rush orders of pharmacy and medical records to get any viable claims filed before the deadline passes.
Texas lawyers, including our firm Reich & Binstock, will be making their way to the courthouse in the next few days to file additional Vioxx lawsuits before the Texas statute of limitations expires on Sept. 30, 2006. Under Texas law, all patients who took the drug and suffered injuries must file their claims by Sept. 30, 2006, in order to comply with state statute of limitations laws. States other than Texas may have different limitations for filing of Vioxx claims.
