Your Eligibility to File a ClaimCould you file a claim against TerraTrike for their defective adult tricycles? To be eligible to file a defective product claim, the product must show at least one of the following: a defect in design, a defect in manufacturing, or a defect in labeling. Although the recall does not specify what type of defect is causing the sensor to power unexpectedly, it is possible that it is due to a defect in either design or manufacturing, for example. Why could you sue? Companies, such as TerraTrike, must ensure that their products are safe for the public prior to making their products available for purchase. When TerraTrike made their defective adult tricycle available for consumers, they were breaching their duty of care and creating an avoidable risk of injury. For more information about whether you can sue for the injuries that you suffered, do not hesitate to contact our product liability attorneys at Downtown L.A. Law Group. Our lawyers will provide you with all the information that you need to better understand your right to pursue a claim.
Your Right to be CompensatedCould you recover compensation? If your defective product claim is successful, you will likely be eligible to recover some sort of compensation. How much compensation could you receive? What type of compensation could you receive? Every claim is different; however, some product liability claims result in claimants recovering some of the following types of compensation:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Punitive damages
Preparing for the ClaimIf you are injured due to a defective product, it is essential that you prepare for the claim. Once again, consider the information on the recall. The recall recommends that consumers who own the recalled tricycles visit the locations where they purchased them for a free repair and free software update. If you suffered injuries and then followed the recommendation to get the tricycle repaired/updated, you might lose the most important piece of evidence for your claim. When you are preparing to file a claim, there are many things that you should do and many things that you shouldn’t do. Consider the following:
- You should seek medical attention for your injuries as soon as possible.
- Keep all records of the medical expenses associated with the injuries caused by the defective product.
- Do not tamper with the defective product in any way after being harmed.
- Do not take the defective product in for a free repair or agree to a refund or exchange.
- Keep all records associated with your purchase of the defective product.
Understanding the Statute of LimitationsUnderstanding the statute of limitations that applies to your claim is an essential part of pursuing a defective product claim. A statute of limitations determines the specific length of time that you have to pursue your claim. If you do not file your claim within the time limit allowed by the statute of limitations, you could lose your right to sue and receive compensation. In general, defective product claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations. However, there are many exceptions that could apply-resulting in a lengthened or shortened deadline to pursue a claim. If you would like more information about the statute of limitations that applies to your claim, do not hesitate to contact our law firm today.
