Of all the items in your house, furniture is probably the last thing you'd think to cause you an injury. But when you consider defective baby cribs, dining room tables, faulty chairs, or even unsafe coffee tables, dangerous furniture can be found all around the house.
At our law firm, we've seen too many clients injured unnecessarily because of defective products. It's the manufacturer's responsibility to produce a safe, reliable product for their consumers. When they fail to do so, the consequences can cause serious injury or even wrongful death.
Unfortunately, the clock is working against you. There are certain time limits to injury cases – also referred to as statutes of limitation. This means that once a certain amount of time has passed, you are no longer able to file an injury claim.
Statutes of limitations restrict the time period that a person can file a lawsuit.
A personal injury action must be filed within two years of the date when the injury occurred.
However, there is a "discovery rule," which, in limited cases, extends the time for filing a personal injury action.
For a product injury case, it's important to preserve the evidence. If a defective chair breaks and injures your hip or back, you might be tempted to throw the chair away. However, that's valuable evidence we'll use to strengthen your case.
Too often we hear from people who assumed they were responsible for their injuries, only to find out later that the manufacturer created a dangerously faulty product. Without the evidence, your case becomes difficult to prove.
