Dealing with a recalled product

No one in Charleston wants to hear that a product that they have purchased has been recalled (much less one that they have actually been using). Panic may set in if one discovers that they have been using a recalled product (which is indeed reasonably possible, as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that 410 products were recalled as recently as 2015). This comes from the fear that a product is only recalled if it is proven to be dangerous. Yet that is not always the case. Oftentimes, a product can be recalled even if it only presents the potential for causing harm, and even then, such harm may not come through standard use.

What are your workplace rights as a new mother?

One of the more common reasons people in Charleston seek medical leave is to accommodate the birth of a child. Your time on maternity leave gives you the perfect opportunity to bond with your new baby. Going back to work after welcoming such a bundle of joy into your life can be difficult (and not simply due to you being separated from your new baby for several hours every workday). As a new mother, your body acclimates to providing your newborn with needed sustenance, and as you know, that does not stop simply because you have to go back to work

Defective products can leave you and your loved ones at risk

Capitalism gives anyone with an idea the opportunity to turn that idea into a product or service and thereby an income stream. Unfortunately, not all products are as safe as the people who designed them might imagine. Other times, companies can have lax testing and safety requirements in the design or manufacture stages that leave consumers vulnerable to product failure and injuries.

Are warranties and service contracts the same thing?

When you purchase certain products in Charleston, the expectation often is that the maintenance of that product is covered under a warranty. In many cases, you may indeed be right. What may seem to confusing to you, however, is to see a company that offers products supposedly covered by warranties than also offer service contracts. Are extended services not covered under warranty? If so, what is the need, then, for a service contract? Or are service contracts and warranties essentially the same thing? 

Nonconformities explained

The process of purchasing a new vehicle in Charleston can be both exhilarating and terrifying. You are no doubt excited about the purchase, yet your enthusiasm is often tempered by concerns that the vehicle may not function as well as you expect once you drive it off the lot. Many people have come to us here at The Grubb Law Group after having been told that they can take a poorly functioning vehicle back to the dealership and that the dealer must take it back, no questions asked. If you have been told the same thing, you first need to know exactly what your consumer protections are in such a situation.
