Warranties are supposed to protect you, the consumer, from loss due to a problem with a purchased product. A product warranty is essentially a promise from the manufacturer to consumers that, even when used properly and as intended, if a product causes damage or injury, it will be replaced and/or the injured party will be compensated for their loss. Unfortunately, some manufacturers do not make good on their promise, and the warranty basically becomes worthless. This is what is known as breach of warranty.

Almost every product purchased comes with an expressed or implied warranty. This warranty may be written, verbal, or implied, meaning a product should meet certain minimal quality standards, and should not fail when used in a correct fashion or because of bad design. This is a consumer protection guarantee that the product should be free from defect and should not break or malfunction during a reasonable period of time from the date of purchase. When this warranty turns out to be worthless, it is time for you as a consumer to take action.

If a product that you have purchased turns out to be faulty and is covered by a warranty, or it has some other product liability issue, you should first try to work with the merchant or manufacturer. They should remedy the problem as covered by the warranty, but if they refuse, a breach of warranty lawsuit may be necessary to get compensation. With the help of an attorney who has experience dealing with product liability and warranty issues, such as Law Offices of Gary Green, you can get the monetary compensation you are entitled to.

Sometimes faulty products cause bodily injuries. If this has happened to you or someone close to you, it is important to know that you may also be entitled compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, or other losses and expenses. Your family may even be due compensation, even if you are uninjured, however, it is important to understand your rights and get representation when it comes to product liability issues and breach of warranty claims.

Sure, everyone occasionally purchases something that they may not be completely happy with. Sometimes the product isn’t what the consumer hoped it would be, but at other times, there is are greater issues at hand, and consumers are left feeling cheated or have been injured. Defective merchandise, injuries caused by products, and breach of warranty claims have many facets and should be looked over carefully by a product liability attorney. If you or a loved one suspects you might have a breach of warranty cause of action, you need to know what your options are.

Tire Failure

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

When it is over 100 degrees outside you want to keep your speed below 100 miles per hour! Much less, of course. As you are driving, be aware of the relationship of tire blowouts to heat, speed and age of the tires. See the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration report, which long story short, shows that in a hot climate tires four to six years of age should be replaced regardless of age or tread wear. To quickly check the age of your tires, look for the last few digits of a code on the tire which represents the manufacturing date of the tire. For example, the “459” on one tire means it was manufactured the 45th week of 1999. Since 2000, tires are identified using 2 digits for the week and 2 digits for the year. For example, a tire manufactured during the 31st week of 2005 would end with 3105.

Should your vehicle’s tires fail, whether it is due to a manufacturer’s faulty design or simply a poor quality production run, it can have devastating consequences in the form of car wrecks that can lead to brain injury, paralysis and even death.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of an injury due to a car wreck caused by tire failure, please contact us today for an initial consultation to discuss your legal options for making the tire manufacturers responsible.
