Product liability statute of limitations in New York

It may surprise you to learn that there is more to a product liability lawsuit than alleging fault and proving your case. Like with many different legal matters, there is something called a statute of limitations regarding product liability cases. A statute of limitations places a limit on how long a plaintiff can bring a lawsuit regarding a certain case, and with very few exceptions, these statutes of limitations are strictly enforced.

Defective product injuries could mean compensation

We have all seen the warning labels on the products we buy: "keep out of reach of children," or "may cause irritation in contact with eyes and skin." Many of these warnings might seem inane or unnecessary, but these warnings are as much about protecting the company behind the product as they are about keeping consumers safe. If these warnings did not appear on a product, and a consumer was injured by that product, the victim could file a product liability claim.

Product defects can occur in the manufacturing stage

Occasionally companies release dangerous or defective products into the market, either due to negligence in their testing processes or simple oversight in their design. Instances like these generally spur recalls in the defective product, and they make up many product liability cases. But sometimes products that are well-designed and have passed thorough testing can still be defective or dangerous, particularly if there is an error in the manufacturing process.
