My name is Stephen R. Cohen and have practiced since 1974. I practice in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. These answers do not create an attorney client relationship. My answers may offend I believe in telling the truth, I use common sense as well as the law. Other state's laws may differ.. There are a lot of really good attorneys on this site, I will do limited appearances which are preparation of court documents it is , less expensive. However generally I believe an attorney is better than none, but many will offer a free consultation and a face to face meeting generally will be better, I like my clients to write a short one page history of the fact and questions they have prior to meeting with them, so nothing is forgotten.
I'm sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, Florida has a four year Statute of Limitations on products liability cases. The four year statute begins from the date of injury or from the date when the injury was discovered or reasonably should have been discovered.
Furthermore, there is also a Statute of Repose in Florida that generally bars any product liability action, including personal injury or wrongful death, if the harm was caused by exposure to use or use of the product more than 12 years after delivery of the product to the first purchaser or lessee.
The law allows a limited time period to bring a negligence or products liability claim. There are exceptions to these time limits but I am not aware of one that extends the time period to 10+ years. Your claim is very likely expired but please seek the opinion of a local attorney.
