  • Strict liability
  • Misrepresentation

Read about the Misrepresentation of Defective Products.

Breach of Warranty

Breach of warranty occurs when a seller fails to provide an appropriate remedy for promises made about a product. A product warranty usually includes specific and implied assertions regarding a product about a product. When a company fails to comply with the terms of the warranty coverage a valid breach of warranty may exist.

Negligence

The failure of a responsible party involved in the production, sale or distribution of a product to use reasonable care may result in a valid negligence claim.

Strict Liability

In certain circumstances, proof that a defective product caused an injury may result in a valid strict liability claim. A claim involving strict liability does not routinely require proof of negligence or unreasonable conduct.

Misrepresentation

False or misleading advertisement that does not sufficiently detail the risks of a certain product may support a claim of misrepresentation.

Consumers are entitled to expect that products, used as intended, should be safely operational according to the directions and warranties. When a defective product has caused injury, any parties involved in the making and selling of that product may be held responsible for the damage.
