What is the Statute Of Limitation for Product Liability Claims?

Product liability claims have a one-year statute of limitations. Product liability claims have a shorter statute of limitations than other types of personal injury claims. After ten years, however, you are barred from making a claim.

Understanding Product Liability Law

Most people have bought or used a defective product at some point. Usually, you simply take it back to the store and return it for one that works. However, when a product defect causes you a severe injury, there is more at stake than simply getting your money back. Under Alabama law, you can file a product liability lawsuit by any of the following:

  • Design defects
  • Defects in the manufacturing
  • Assembly defects
  • Failure to warn about potential problems
  • Negligent misrepresentation
  • Breach of the warranty

Mass Torts, Class Actions, and Defective Products

Some defective products have been manufactured and distributed to thousands across the country. When this happens, the litigation surrounding it is called a mass tort. (A “tort” is an infringement upon a civil right.) People across the country often band together in a claim against the company. This is called a class action: the injured people are the “class,” and the lawsuit is the “action.” But you don’t have to join a class action, even if the product that hurt you is part of a mass tort. You can still file an individual lawsuit, depending on your specific circumstances. Some of the dangerous and defective products that have led to both individual and class action lawsuits include:

  • 3M combat earplugs
  • Hernia mesh made by multiple pharmaceutical companies
  • Stryker and DePuy cobalt hips and knees
  • Valsartan for high blood pressure
  • Takata’s exploding airbags
  • Goodyear’s tires
  • GM’s defective gear shifters
  • Bair Hugger’s surgical warming blankets
  • Baby powder and Shower-to-Shower talc-based hygiene powder
  • Surgical staplers

Our Birmingham product liability lawyers from Mezrano Law Firm can help you decide which option is best for you.

How Much is My Product's Liability Claim Worth?

We will never know exactly how much we can go after until after the discovery phase. To determine the compensation you deserve, we will look at:

  • Medical bills (past, present, and future)
  • Lost wages (past, present, and future)
  • Any amount of property damage
  • Pain and Suffering

Finally, you could be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish a wrongdoer. Alabama caps these damages at 3x the amount of the compensatory damages OR $1.5 million, whichever is less. Additionally, if your loved one dies because of a defective product, your lawsuit automatically becomes a wrongful death lawsuit.
