How Long Do I Have To File a Product Liability Case:
The statute of limitations depends on the jurisdiction you reside in or the location where the injury took place. (See below for the statue of limitations for your state). However, most defective product cases dealing with defective medical devices are handled in Federal Court. Cases handled in Federal Court are not based on jurisdiction thus allowing an attorney from a different state to represent you in the court of law.

- When the injured person in a minor (under the age of 18)
