When we buy a product, whether it’s a big purchase like a car or a household good that you’ve bought many times before, we are trusting that it is safe and there is nothing faulty that could potentially cause harm. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Product liability lawsuits aim to seek justice for any harm a product may have caused consumers and hold all parties in the manufacturing chain accountable. Migliaccio & Rathod LLP has helped many clients settle their product liability cases and reach rewarding settlements.
Manufacturers can and must be held accountable for the damage, injury, or illness that defects in their products cause consumers. This is the aim of product liability lawsuits, and a product can be found to be dangerous in its design, composition, or marketing. In addition to the main manufacturer of a product, product liability cases can also target other companies that manufactured components used to create the product, a wholesaler who sold the product to a retailer, and retailers that sold products to consumers. All parties have a responsibility to either build or sell products that are safe for consumers.
Apaliski et al. v. Molekule, Inc., Case No. 1:20-cv-1548 (D. Del.). Migliaccio & Rathod LLP filed suit against Molekule for deceptive advertising claims regarding the quality and capability of their air purifier. The case settled for $1.3 million dollars on behalf of consumers of the devices who purchased from 3rd party vendors such as Amazon.com, Best Buy, and other online or brick and mortar sellers. Those qualifying purchasers who submitted a valid claim form received $1,200 for Group A claimants and $800 to Group B. Molekule purchasers who purchased directly from the company’s website are unfortunately subject to Molekule’s arbitration agreement and we urge those consumers to file individual based arbitration claims through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) as outlined in Molekule’s terms and conditions.
