Product manufacturers should be responsible in making safe products, but sometimes consumers end up with faulty products or contaminated food. Learning that a produced you used has been recalled by the company can make anyone nervous, especially if it is a product your child also uses. However, it is even more frustrating and painful when you experience an injury due to a recalled product. You may feel as if there is nothing you can do after experiencing an injury due to a recalled product, but that is not true. With the help of an attorney, there are certain steps you can take to claim restitution and justice for your injuries.
If you have been directly injured by a product that was recalled and you have medical bills and lost wages from missed work, you may have a products liability claim. A products liability claim can only be filed in Florida if you can prove that you purchased a defective product and it cause injury resulting in significant damage. It can be confusing and stressful to try to determine if you can file a products liability claim and who exactly you should be suing. If this sounds like you, it may be time to involve an attorney to claim restitution for your injuries due to a recalled product. Do not forget that documents like photos, bills, and product receipts can help your attorneys. It should also be noted that the statute of limitations for personal injury in the state of Florida is four years after the injury should have been discovered, so make sure to take action as soon as you realize your injury due to a recalled product.
