Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Product liability law exists to protect people who are hurt by defective products. It allows them to recover for injury by seeking damages from the product manufacturer or other parties in the chain of distribution.
More than just the manufacturer is responsible for the safety of a product and sometimes a seller can be held liable for putting a defective product in a customer's hands. But of course there are also important time limits and other considerations that restrict a case. Let's take a look at initial issues impacting the timeline of a product liability lawsuit.
3 Major Considerations
Impossible to Predict
It is impossible to predict how long a product liability case will take because a lot depends on case details, the parties, and how complex the matter is. There may be much motion practice or legal arguments made before trial. Sometimes attorneys on either side of a case can agree to many extensions of discovery and even delays of the trial date if research is still required or a negotiated settlement seems possible. There are numerous factors that go into the timing of any case and its resolutions.
