Put Decades of Experience in Your Corner
In a consumer-driven society, millions of dollars are spent every year
in retail spaces. And products that fail to meet safety standards are
common. If not manufactured or packaged properly, a product can become
a serious threat to a consumer's health. Even if used as directed
on packaging or in instruction manuals, the products themselves may not
have undergone thorough health and safety testing. If you have sustained
an injury due to a product's unsafe design, manufacturing, or instructions,

TIME LIMITS FOR FILING PRODUCT LIABILITY CASES
It is reasonable to expect that the products we buy and use will perform
to our expectations and do so in a safe manner. Sometimes, however, products
may have defects or other unexpected dangers that may prove harmful to
the user. In these cases, the product’s manufacturer may be held
liable for any damages or injuries that occur from using the product,
but claims must be made in a timely manner.
If you have sustained an injury while using a product, there is a limit
to the amount of time you have to file a claim. These time limits, called
the “statute of limitations,” vary from state to state. The
time limit usually begins when the person who was injured first discovers
their injuries, but could also be as soon as the injury was actually sustained,
under what is known as the “discovery rule.”
Here in Alabama, action must be taken within two years of the discovery
of the injury. Most states allow for 1-3 years, while some states, like
North Dakota, allow as many as 11 years to pass from the date of manufacture.
Some states also have “statutes of repose,” which bar actions
that are not brought forth within a certain time period after an event
