Do I have to file immediately in a product liability case?

You should. All states have some form of “statute of limitations”, which strictly limits the time you have to file a lawsuit. A valid claim filed after the statute is usually denied. As a result, if you think that you may have been injured from a defective product, you should seek the advice of an attorney at the earliest opportunity, to protect your rights.

The time frame in which the statute of limitations runs usually begins from the time of the injury as a result of the defect. You’d want to go see a personal injury lawyer sooner rather than later to find out exactly what the time frame is in your state.
