A warranty is a means to ensure that companies stand by the quality of their product. Many of the products consumers purchase, as well as services they use, also come with express warranties. If the satisfaction that was guaranteed by the express warranty is not provided, some people will pursue lawsuits. North Carolina consumer protection laws are important to the safety and well-being of the community. Additionally, North Carolina law imposes certain warranties on the sale or lease of products and on the modification or repair of products. These are known as implied warranties.
Warranty affects more than just manufacturing and engineering. Advertising and marketing are areas of accountability and, since warranties can often be obscurely worded in the advertising, it’s important to understand the real implications of the warranty you purchase either automatically or independently of your product. If a warranty is deceptive or if the warrantor simply hasn’t made good on a warranty, the warranty holder may be entitled by law to compensation. Generally speaking, more of these cases end in settlement, and our goal is to make sure that the settlement is fair.
