If I am hurt by a product defect that also caused injury to other parties, am I obligated to join a class action suit?


How long do I have to file a product liability claim?

The statute of limitations, the time limit after which a victim of product liability has to legally file a claim, determines how long a person has to take legal action. It also may depend on the nature of the product liability claim. Sometimes the time is determined from the moment of injury. Other times the time period in which one may legally file a claim for Phoenix personal injury or damage begins only once the injury or damage is discovered.

How much money would I need to pay in order to make a product liability claim?

Should you have a justifiable complaint against a corporation, manufacturer, or designer, it is likely that you will find a lawyer who will take on your case on a contingency basis. This means that you would not have to pay any legal fees upfront, but would only have to pay if and when there is a monetary settlement or a trial victory in which an amount of money is awarded.

If I do "win" a product liability lawsuit, how are damages awarded?

The details of a case determine how damages are awarded to any injured party in a product liability case. Compensation could include monies for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other distress. In cases where the court or jury rules that the defendant behaves in a particularly malevolent fashion, you may even be able to collect punitive damages above and beyond the compensation that is legally due. This type of judgment is made in order to punish the offending party.

If I am hurt by a product defect that also caused injury to other parties, am I obligated to join a class action suit?

No, you are not obligated to join a class action lawsuit, though there are advantages to doing so. It is more favorable to join a class action lawsuit when the third party against whom the suit is filed has been particularly egregious, or in instances when a large company or an individual with vast legal resources is involved. This is especially true in instances of higher profile cases that involve the media.
