Don't Delay: The Clock Is Ticking You Have Just 2 or 3 Years to File
Statute of limitations laws set hard deadlines for when lawsuits must be filed by. Failing to meet your deadline likely means you forever lose the ability to receive the compensation you deserve.
In New York, you have three years from the time you were harmed to file a personal injury lawsuit. If your loved one was tragically killed as a result of a defective product, you have only two years from the time of their passing to file your claim.
Defective Products Have Substantial Effects
In 2022, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission stated that approximately 80 Americans are killed every year by carbon monoxide from portable generators. This is just one example of the many different types of marketing, design, and manufacturing defects that cause so much harm to our friends, families, and neighbors.
The Litigation Process and the Value of an Injury
The amount a case may be “worth” depends upon several complicated factors:
Maximizing the value of any case involving product liability requires thorough preparation and an investment of time and resources. This means retaining the necessary experts to prove that the product was defective.
Depending upon where a case is pending, the parties may have the right to depose each other’s experts. This is a key part of the litigation process, which can have a great effect on the ultimate outcome.
The defendant’s attorneys may ask the Court to dismiss a case before it even gets to trial. That is one of the many reasons why retaining our attorneys to represent you and contact the appropriate experts is so critical.
How Will We Build Your Product Liability Case?
Contacting an attorney as soon as you are physically able to do so will ensure that you follow the correct strategy to preserve your rights in litigation. During the course of our representation, it may be necessary for us to retain an economic expert or a vocational rehabilitation expert. However, before an injured party can collect for the value of an injury, there has to be proof that the product was defective in the first instance.
Product liability cases are brought for many reasons, including simple negligence, breach of warranty, or strict liability. Since both defendant's and plaintiff's counsel may wish to inspect the product, it is crucial to preserve it as it was at the time of its last use. We understand you might want to dispose of it but this could have a disastrous effect on your lawsuit. Our New York law firm has the resources to retain all appropriate experts to prove liability.
