Question:

What Is the Time Limit for My Defective Product Claim?

Answer:

In Illinois, if you believe you have been injured as the result of a defective product, there are two time periods that you need to be aware of. The first one is, if you were aware or should have been aware at the time that you were injured because of a defective product, you typically have two years from the day that you learned that this was a defective that injured you. If it has been longer than two years, because you didn’t know that the defective product had injured you, there is a ten-year statute of limitations on bringing a case. In other words, if after three to four years you learn that a product has injured you, you could still bring a case, even though it’s past the two-year deadline, as long as it’s within the ten-year statute of limitations.

This kind of analysis is critical to be done by a lawyer that’s handled these kinds of product liability cases before. Depending on how the case is explored and examined can determine whether or not you have a case or one that is going to be limited because of the statute of limitations. You should speak to a lawyer that has handled these types of product liability cases in the past to decide what statute of limitations would apply to your case.
