• A person injured by a defective product typically has 2 years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit. If it’s filed after that time it may dismissed by the court.
• If the product liability lawsuit is based on a contract, including a breach of warranty theory, the plaintiff must file it within 5 years after the cause of action occurred.
• There are exceptions to the statute of limitations in certain situations. For instance, if the person injured is mentally incompetent or a minor, then the time frame for filing a lawsuit may be extended.
