What is Breach of Warranty?
When a product is defective, it can turn a common household item into a potential danger. If you’ve been injured in the Dallas area by a defective product, it’s important to find an attorney that is familiar with product liability law. The Turley Law Firm has successfully represented injury victims for more than 40 years, and is intimate with every aspect of defective product claims.
Typically, there are three types of product liability claims: strict liability, negligence and breach of warranty. Strict Liability means that a defect in the product exists and it directly caused an injury. In order to establish negligence, you must prove that recklessness in a product’s design or manufacturing led to your injury.
What is Breach of Warranty?A breach of warranty refers to a situation in which the product that caused an injury was not as the maker or distributor represented it. There are two kinds of warranties that be breached:
Express Warranty: An express warranty refers to a statement made by a product’s manufacturer regarding the intended and proper use of a product. If a product causes injury while you are using it in the appropriate way it was intended, a breach of express warranty may have occurred.
Implied Warranty: In contrast, an implied warranty is not a direct statement by a manufacturer. Rather, it is the implication that if used as intended, a product can be safely used.
