What is a warranty?

Personal injury lawyers in Baltimore understand that a warranty is a factual statement, made by a seller to a buyer who relies on that information in deciding to purchase the product. The factual statement can be oral, or written. If the product does not live up to that warranty, and damage or injury result, the consumer is entitled to economic damages.

Statements of opinion ["that's a great car"] or personal recommendations ["I love that car"] are not considered statements of fact, and therefore do not create a warranty.

"This car will pull 3500 lbs up a 6% grade at 25 mph" would be a factual statement, and therefore a warranty, as the performance of a car. Warranties typically don't play a role in personal injury cases but may be a factor in specific applications.
