Please continue reading to learn more about product liability lawsuits and how our firm can guide you through the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What should I do if I have been injured by a defective product?
If you have been harmed by a defective product, you will have to hire an attorney who can satisfy the burden of proof. First, your attorney must determine the party responsible, as several different parties are involved in the production and distribution of a product. There are three primary types of product liability lawsuits. You may sue for negligent product design, a negligent product manufacturer, or even the failure to warn consumers of potential safety hazards. Once you are injured, you may be tempted to destroy or throw the dangerous product away. Do not make this mistake. If you keep the product, our knowledgeable Florida personal injury attorney can use it as evidence. Furthermore, take pictures of your injuries and any other damage the product caused and ensure you receive medical treatment immediately. Doing so will have the origin and extent of your injuries documented.
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Florida?
Everyone who is wrongly injured has a certain amount of time to take legal action against the party that caused their injuries. This timeframe is known as the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is, generally, four years, which means you have four years from the date of your accident to sue. If you wait any longer than four years, you will most likely be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. We are ready to help you today.
