Defective Products and Warranty Law (“Lemon Law”)

The amount of information available to consumers through the Internet is unprecedented compared with previous generations. Companies can track the performance of their products and consumers can share information about products good or bad and learn from other’s experiences. When companies learn of defects, but fail to act or worse, act to conceal the problem, consumers sometimes suffer physical harm caused by use of the product and consumers always suffer economic harm by receiving something less valuable than what they paid for.
