It happens. Consumers purchase products like cars, TVs, computers and appliances that are defective. In these situations, consumers often wonder what – if anything – they can do and who can help them.
Fortunately, federal and state laws protect consumers from manufacturers and retailers that lack proper guarantees or warrantees on their products. The attorneys at the Vullings Law Group, LLC can help fight back against those companies at no cost to the consumer.
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act is the federal law governing consumer product warranties. Under the Act, the makers and merchants of consumer products must do two things:
- provide consumers detailed information about written warranty coverage and
- fulfill the terms of such warranties.
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act covers more than suits that concern a written warranty – the Act can also apply to consumer products covered by implied warranties. If a product’s maker or merchant fails to comply with obligations under a written or implied warranty or service contract, the consumer may be able to sue for damages. And, if the case is successful, attorney’s fees are covered, too.
