We get asked many questions regarding recalled products, and we are happy to answer any and all questions. The get asked a wide variety of questions that depend on a few factors like the type of product, the severity of the recall, and the injury of the defective product. The most common questions regarding defective recalled products follow thusly:

  • What do I have to do in order to prove my defective product liability lawsuit?
  • Who is liable if I am injured?
  • What is the statute of limitations when it comes to defective product liability claims?


How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit for the Defective Product Injury?
When a crime or event occurs and you want to file a lawsuit to seek restitution, you must do so before the statute of limitations expires. The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file a claim against the entity (person, persons, company) — think of it like an expiration date.

The statute of limitations differs from crime to crime. For instance, the statute of limitations for discrimination (180 or 300 days) is different than the statute of limitations for murder (no statute limit exists).

The statute of limitations for a product liability case in the state of California is two years from the date of the injury, or when it should have been discovered. If you file your case even one day after the statute of limitations, the judge will likely throw your case out no matter how well founded your claim is.

Who Is Liable if I am Injured Using a Product?
When it comes to liability of the defective product, it is important that you include as much information as possible. This includes information regarding the product name, the manufacturer, retailer, and any other relevant information.

In most cases it is the company of the product that will be found liable to pay for injuries and/or property damage.

Compensation Available to You
When you are injured using a product, you are entitled to receive compensation. Compensation that is available to you depends on the extent of your injuries.

Bodily Injury: If your accident requires medical treatment, proper compensation will pay for your medical costs that were associated with your incident. The right compensation will also pay for any future procedures you require to help you heal, as well as any physical therapy that is needed.

Lost Wages: When you miss work, you miss out on valuable work hours that help you sustain yourself and your family. The right compensation will help recover your lost wages. Furthermore, if you are permanently disabled, you may be eligible to receive compensation for lost potential earnings.
