What Is The Time Limit For Filing A Defective Product Lawsuit In Florida?

There are two different issues when you talk about time limits for product liability. One is the statute of limitations, and the statute of limitations in Florida for product liability is four years. You have four years from the date of your injury, when you knew or should have known of your injury. However, there’s another statute called the statute of repose, and that means … then it’s twelve years for product liability in Florida. That means that you can only go back twelve years to the date when the manufacturer placed the product into the stream of commerce to bring your suit, no matter when the injury occurred.
