Product liability is a type of lawsuit that can be filed against a manufacturer, retailer, or another party in the supply chain of a product. The age of the product does not necessarily impact whether a person can file a product liability case, but it can be helpful for the defendant. If a company has been in business for a long time and the product is old, it may be hard to prove that the company was negligent.
You should also take into account the fact that there is usually a statute of limitations on product liability cases. Contact a lawyer to learn more about whether your case may qualify.
