Can I Sue Amazon for a Defective Product?

Free Consultation

Amazon avoided culpability for damages brought on by defective products until recently by arguing that they merely served as a conduit for consumers to purchase goods from other sellers. However, the California Fourth District Court of Appeals decided on August 13, 2020, that Amazon may be held liable for the harms brought on by a faulty laptop battery that caught fire and resulted in a woman suffering third-degree burns.

Amazon’s Liability

Amazon has resisted numerous lawsuits for years because they are service providers. The court determined in the above-mentioned landmark case that Amazon was essential to the customer’s ability to access the product, and was thereby liable, by doing the following:

  •   Storing the product in its warehouse.
  •   Accepting payment for the product.
  •   Shipping the product.
  •   Establishing the terms of its relationship with the seller.
  •   Levying fees on each purchase, Amazon played a significant part in the distribution chain of the faulty laptop battery.

As a result, Amazon may be held accountable for any defective goods sold through its marketplace under the theory of strict liability.

Liability for Defective Products

Companies must ensure that the items they make available to consumers are safe for them to use based on product responsibility. Businesses must test and inspect their products. Unfortunately, businesses occasionally fail to ensure that their products are safe for consumers to use; when this occurs, they fail in their duty of care to their customers, endangering them. As a result, the business that made the goods available may be held liable for any damages incurred where a breach of duty results in an occurrence that directly causes injury to a customer.

Although the notion of product liability used to primarily apply to businesses that made defective items, liability for defective products is now extended to service providers that play a significant part in making defective products available to customers.

What Should You Do If You Have Been Harmed by a Defective Product?

You should do several things to be sure you can hold the negligent company liable. Affected customers should take the following actions after being harmed by a defective product:

  •   Take pictures of the damage the faulty product has created.
  •   Take pictures of any property damage resulting from the faulty product.
  •   Take pictures of the faulty merchandise.
  •   Seek medical attention as soon as you can.
  •   Inform the business about the event (keep records of the report and of any other communications with the company).
  •   Refuse to give the business your defective merchandise.
  •   Refuse to accept a free repair.
  •   Never accept a free replacement.
  •   Never consent to a refund.
  •   Consult with witnesses (and collect their contact information).
  •   Gather all necessary medical records, purchase records, property damage records, and lost wages data.
  •   Consult a product liability attorney as soon as feasible.
