What is the Connecticut Product Liability Act?
The Connecticut Product Liability Act lays out guidelines for pursuing compensation for defective product injuries. The act covers the following laws related to filing a defective product lawsuit:
- Statute of Limitations: Under this act, consumers have the right to pursue legal action against the manufacturer for up to 3 years after the date of their injury. In some cases, the "discovery rule" may allow for a longer time frame. This allows for legal action to be taken if the injury could not have reasonably been discovered within the 3-year time frame.
- Comparative Fault: Connecticut follows comparative fault laws with product liability claims as well. This means that you may still pursue compensation if you are partially responsible for your injuries, however, your compensation may be diminished in accordance with the amount of fault you hold.
- Liability: Connecticut allows product liability lawsuits to be filed under the following circumstances: negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty. This can include instances where there was a manufacturing or design defect, or the manufacturer failed to provide adequate warnings or instructions for use of the product.
