- Defective Products
When a California consumer needs a skilled defective product lawyer, trust the California defective product lawyers at Eppsteiner & Fiorica. We represent individuals and classes of consumers who have been harmed by, false representations, unfulfilled warranties and products, and services that were misrepresented. Often, manufacturers know their products won’t perform as represented and banks and insurers know they won’t abide the terms of their agreements and policies. They often conceal material information about their products and services, concealment of material information from purchasers can also be the basis of consumers' claims.
- Financing and Credit
Americans buy and lease cars, motorcycles, boats, trailers, RVs, televisions, electronic equipment, spas and other items. High-dollar purchases are often financed and frequently consumers are rudely awakened when they learn of all of the terms and conditions of these financing documents. Examples of added financing conditions include late penalties, elevated interest payments, accelerated payments, and many others. There are federal and in many instances state laws that protect consumers from unscrupulous finance companies that prey on consumers through provisions hidden in financing contracts.
- Insurance Protection
At Eppsteiner & Fiorica, our experience is that insurance providers usually do not interpret insurance policies fairly or to favor you. Occasionally you can determine disagreements with your insurance company. However, too frequently you will need a lawyer with knowledge and experience in insurance coverage matters who can sort out the tangle of provisions, exclusions and definitions, and put together the pieces needed to perfect your insurance coverage and get your lawsuit paid.
- Product Liability
Products, used as intended, should not hurt you or your property. This is a plain and simple declarative statement. It is true and no consumer should doubt it. But, what if a product hurts me or damages a consumer or their property? In the United States, if a product hurts people or damages property, its manufacturer is strictly liable for the harm the product caused. Product Liability is the liability of manufacturers, distributors, retailers and other resellers of defective products. Lawsuits filed against these entities for damage and harm cause by defective products are called Product Liability lawsuits.
