Understanding the Statute of Limitations that Applies to Your Claim
You have the right to file a product liability claim after you or your family was harmed by a defective product. You could pursue a claim. Did you know you could lose your right to pursue a claim if you do not take action within the appropriate length of time? All claims are subject to strict statutes of limitations – a statute of limitations is a deadline that establishes the specific length of time that you claimants have to pursue their claims. In the state of California, product liability claims are subject to a 2-year statute of limitations; therefore, claimants will only have a short 2-year period to take action. If claims are not filed by the time the statute of limitations expires, claimants will lose the right to pursue their claims – and they will also lose their right to receive compensation. Because of the possibility that victims and their families could lose the right to sue, we always recommend that claimants seek legal assistance to get a thorough understanding of the specific deadline that applies to their claims. If you would like more information regarding the deadline that applies to your claim, do not hesitate to contact our firm as soon as possible.
