Statutes of Limitations limit the time period that plaintiffs have to file a legal claim. These time limits vary from state to state, but generally range from 2-6 years. In product liability cases, the statute of limitations usually begins when the injury occurs, but in some cases may not start until the affected person discovers, or should have discovered, that the product caused their injury.
