What is the statute of limitations for defective product claims?

There are many different types of products sold and used by people living in Florida. These products serve many different purposes. Some are fairly simple and do not involve many pieces or mechanical parts. However, others can be very complicated and involve mechanical parts, electrical parts and even chemical parts. When all the parts work correctly the product can be very useful for its purpose.

However, if all these parts do not work properly they can not only not serve their function, but defective products can also cause serious injuries to the people using them. This can put the victims of these accidents in a very difficult position. Not only will they need to heal from their physical injuries, which may take a long period of time, but also deal with the financial consequences. They may have high medical bills after surgeries and rehabilitation. They also may lose income if they are unable to work.

However, these victims may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. They may need to file a lawsuit in order to receive what they are owed. People may be able to sue for error in the the manufacturing, the designing, the assembly, the installation and others who may have contributed to the defective product. They must do this within four years of the injury. If they do not file a lawsuit within those four years, they may lose their ability to sue at all. So, it is important to ensure one is filed within those four years.

There are many defective products in Florida and unfortunately people are injured when they malfunction. These injuries can be very costly for the victim, but they may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. While this compensation will not heal the injuries, they can at least ease the financial burdens associated with the injury. Experienced attorneys understand the procedure for filing these lawsuits and may be able to guide one through the process.
