As a consumer, you are entitled to certain protections against the faulty manufacture and/or design of a product. This is known as the duty of care owed to you by the manufacturer and retailer of the product. Unfortunately, products we use are sometimes unsafe and result in personal injuries or economic loss. The question becomes whether the manufacturer and retailer failed to meet their duty of care.
Victims of personal injury or economic loss as a result of faulty manufacture or design of products are entitled to claim compensation through a product liability lawsuit. Generally, a claim for compensation as a result of product liability must be commenced within two years from the date you knew or ought to have known of the loss.
