How long do I have to file a product liability claim?

To know how long you have to file a personal injury and/or product liability lawsuit, you first should understand what product liability is, who’s at fault, and the types of injuries that can occur due to a faulty product.

What is product liability?

Product liability is an extension of personal injury law. It holds accountable the creators and distributors of defective products that could or does end up harming an individual.

Who’s at fault?

Since these products can be defected at any stage of their creation, development or distribution, the product designer, manufacturer, distributor or wholesaler, like Amazon for example, could be labeled in the lawsuit.

What types of injuries can occur?

Of course, this answer depends on the product, so injuries will vary in significance and style. Defective products can encompass any area of your home; from appliances to everyday household objects, to food and beverages and even your vehicle, yard or recreational equipment.

The statute of limitations

Is there a statute of limitations (the time allotted to file a claim)? Yes, there is. In New Jersey, anyone injured by a defective product is allotted two years from the date of the injury to file a product liability claim.

These rights were put in place to protect you, the consumer, from being taken advantage of by faulty products and ill-fitted manufacturers. If injured, take full advantage of these rights, contact a personal injury attorney who will fight for the compensation you deserve.
