Who is responsible if I am injured due to a defective product?

There are generally three types of product liability lawsuits. They are as follows:

  • Failure to warn: Warning labels are required to be used on certain products. When these labels are not present, consumers can unknowingly use the product the wrong way and sustain a serious injury as a result. Choking hazards and warning against improper use of a product are among some of the most common warning labels that may be required on products.
  • Negligent product design: Product designers are responsible for ensuring the safety of their customers. Failure to do so may increase the chances of a serious accident occurring due to a defective design. You will likely have a valid product liability claim if you have been injured by a defective product due to a negligent product design.
  • Negligent product manufacturer: A product blueprint is created to ensure the product design is safe for use. However, when a manufacturer diverts from this blueprint, this can lead to unsafe product design. This can cause accidents and injuries.

How long will I have to sue for an injury due to a defective product?

After being injured by a defective product, you may be wondering how much time you will have to take legal action. The statute of limitations for product liability claims is generally three years in Maryland. This means from the date of your injuries, you will have three years to file your claim.
