I consulted with a lawyer who gives a free advice to potential plaintiffs in a Small Court. My question was: What's the statute of limitation if I want to go after a company which sold a product that had such a high failure rate that they spentmillions to settle a class action suit. I was in a minority group of those who bought the product through a channel that the company failed to notify about the class formation.
The answer I got was: the company who sold this high-tech product effectively entered in a contractual relation, so the statute of limitation is 6 years. I don't completely trust the answer because it feels a bit of a stretch to equate a sale with acontract for this purpose.
What would be an effective way to resolve this uncertainty? I don't want to end up with wasting my time and the cost of complaint by having my case being dismissed at the time of hearing.
