Neb. Rev. Stat. § 25-224(1) All product liability actions, except one governed by subsection (5) of this section, shall be commenced within four years next after the date on which the death, injury, or damage complained of occurs. Under Nebraska law, causes of action of consumer of prescription drug against drug manufacturer designated as negligence, strict liability and warranty were in the nature of product liability actions, and thus were barred by ten-year product liability statute of limitations and repose. Neb.Rev.St. § 25–224.
The statute of limitations begins when the person bringing the cause of action discovers, or reasonably should have discovered the existence of the injury or damage.
Statute of Repose - (2)(a) Notwithstanding subsection (1) of this section or any other statutory provision to the contrary, any product liability action, except one governed by section 2-725, Uniform Commercial Code or by subsection (5) of this section, shall be commenced as follows:
(i) For products manufactured in Nebraska, within ten years after the date the product which allegedly caused the personal injury, death, or damage was first sold or leased for use or consumption; or
(ii) For products manufactured outside Nebraska, within the time allowed by the applicable statute of repose, if any, of the state or country where the product was manufactured, but in no event less than ten years. If the state or country where the product was manufactured does not have an applicable statute of repose, then the only limitation upon the commencement of an action for product liability shall be as set forth in subsection (1) of this section. Neb. Rev. Stat. § 25-224
