Prerequisites For Filing A Defective Product Lawsuit
Manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers can be liable for damages resulting from defective product injuries. Products that fall under this type of law include real estate, food, drugs and almost all consumer products.
To seek damages in a defective product claim, you do not need to be the original purchaser of the product, and it is typically not necessary to prove negligence to gain compensation. You can file for damages as long as you used the product as it was intended and did not substantially alter it from its original condition.
Product Liability Statute Of Limitations
For your case to be accepted by the courts, you must file your claim within two years of the date of your injury. This is known as the “statute of limitations.” Failure to file in time will most likely result in your claim being dismissed by the court. Don’t wait!

Other Defective Product Examples
Specific products and product features that have caused injuries to users have included the following:
- Defective manufacturing
- Design flaws and defects
- Toxic chemicals, cleaning agents, pesticides
- Inadequate warning labels
- Dangerous toys and consumer products
- Improper instructions for use
- Car parts, machinery and construction equipment with mechanical defects and failures
A product is defective if it has a design defect, if the manufacturer or seller fails to warn about dangers associated with its use, or if a manufacturing defect exists when it is improperly assembled. In all defective product cases, documentation such as receipts of purchase or repair records are essential for strengthening an injury claim. Our product liability attorneys can investigate the incident to build your case and represent you in court.
Knowledgeable Attorneys Helping You Pursue Your Defective Product Settlement
With eight decades of experience, Jerry McGlone and his son Dan serve as product liability lawyers in Terre Haute for a variety of product liability issues. Most defective product cases in Indiana are matters of strict liability, which means that you must first prove that the product had a defect and then prove that the defect caused the injury. If the product was used as intended and was not altered, the injured party can sue for damages. We can determine your eligibility and work directly with you from initial consultation to resolution of your case.
