Alabama Product Liability Laws You Need to Know

When you’re hurt by a faulty product, you may have grounds for a court claim to compensate you for the damages you’ve suffered. But getting compensated isn’t just about suing the right person—you need to know the laws surrounding your claim. 

You may have grounds for a lawsuit, but don’t hesitate to seek answers for your claim from a personal injury lawyer and get a strong defense grounded in the Alabama state laws that will impact your claim. 

Liability for Product Defects

When you’re hurt by a defective product, one of your first steps is to determine fault. The at-fault party may not take credit for their actions, making it more difficult for you to determine who’s at fault. That can lead to delays in your case and difficulties in your claim. 

So who’s liable for your injuries? In many cases, you’ll need to file a claim against the manufacturer that made the defective product. They failed to ensure their product was safe for all users, leaving you seriously injured because of this mistake. 

But they’re not the only party that may have made choices that led to your serious injuries. Other parts of the manufacturing and selling process can lead to serious injuries. Talk to your lawyer to determine who’s at fault for your injuries. 

Your Time Is Limited

You can’t wait too long to file a lawsuit. If your Alabama product liability claim isn’t filed within two years of the injury, your compensation may be denied. That leaves you without compensation for the suffering and damages you experienced because of the accident. 

Luckily, your lawyer can make this work in your favor. Evidence can be lost or destroyed over time, making it difficult to prove the at-fault party hurt you. If you move quickly on your claim, you have a stronger opportunity to get compensated fairly, with your lawyer’s guidance. 

Alabama Extended Manufacturer’s Liability Doctrine

Alabama also has a specific doctrine about product liability called the Alabama Extended Manufacturer’s Liability Doctrine (AEMLD). The AEMLD outlines what you need to prove to get compensated. For example, you’ll need to prove the product wasn’t altered substantially before it reached you. You’ll also need to prove that it was unnecessarily dangerous and caused you harm. 

These laws don’t just limit your options to prove you were injured. They can even limit your compensation. Talk to your lawyer about the compensation you’re due and how to maximize your compensation under these laws.
