    Product Liability Claims and Deadlines

    The failure to promptly file their claims often results in parties with perfectly valid claims losing their right to sue. This is due to the fact that all claims are subject to deadlines – specifically, all claims are subject to a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is establishes the length of time that claimants have to file their claims. When they fail to file their claims within the time allowed by the statute of limitations, claimants can lose their right to sue.

    Product liability claims (at least in the state of California) are subject to a two-year statute of limitations; this means that the victims directly harmed by defective products have a two-year period to file their claims. However, exceptions apply. If the victim was underage, for example, the statute of limitations is tolled until the victim turns eighteen – this means that claims could be filed at any time up to two years after the victim’s eighteenth birthday (the victim could be up to twenty-years-old). Other exceptions could also apply. Therefore, it is necessary for claimants to discuss the applicable deadlines (and exceptions) with the lawyers at our firm immediately.
