Warranties often safeguard consumers from faulty products or poorly delivered services. When a warranty is breached, consumers may have no alternative but to take legal action against the responsible company or individual. The help of a capable attorney can go a long way toward holding products and services providers accountable.

The lawyers at Tully Rinckey PLLC have the experience you need to become a satisfied customer. Breach of warranty cases typically involve warranty of fitness for a particular purpose (the item doesn’t meet or perform its advertised capabilities) or warranty of merchantability (the product or service isn’t what it was alleged to be). In any case, we assist you in either getting back your money or being compensated in another way for the breach.

Providers of products and services have a certain obligation – an express or implied contract – to deliver on what they promise. Whether you’re a manufacturer, distributor, supplier, or retailer, you know you have certain liability for what you sell. Sometimes, though, customers feel they didn’t get what they thought they should and may sue you. That’s when you need the experience of an attorney who understands products and services liability.

Consumers may claim damages for a number of reasons. They may claim that product or service warnings were inadequate or missing entirely – called a “failure to warn” assertion. They may also claim damages caused by a manufacturing or design defect in a product. Further, they may claim an injury or other damage that resulted from a service, whether performed correctly or not. A products and services liability lawyer can represent your company from a position of strength.

The litigation attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC handle every aspect of liability cases involving products and services providers.
