Consumer Fraud & Product Liability

We help keep big companies in check.

The trial attorneys at Walters Renwick Richards Skeens & Vaughan, P.C. have proven themselves time and again in the areas of consumer fraud and product liability.


Many laws govern the acts of big businesses to protect the public, from requiring honest sales and product advertising to demanding strict safety standards.  These laws require companies to act in good faith, invest in safety measures, warn consumers of risks, and be truthful in their representations.


When a company violates the law just to turn a profit, it can harm you and other consumers—financially or even physically.


If you have been injured by a product, suffered an economic loss, have been misled, or have been treated unfairly, often others have been as well—or will be.  A lawsuit can not only achieve justice for you, but it can help put an end to a company’s illegal actions and prevent others from suffering the same harm.


Since 2007, our firm has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for individuals due to violations of consumer and product safety laws.   While these financial awards have been life-changing for some of WRRSV’s clients, the legal action pursued by WRRSV has resulted in much more than mere monetary benefits.  With the help of our clients in seeking to right wrongs, practices that were unfair or unlawful have been discontinued.  Unsafe conditions have been corrected. The health and safety of consumers have been enhanced by agreements made with manufacturers as a part of settlements to stop selling defective products and start disclosing the true facts about products.


Our trial attorneys stand up and speak out.

We have extensive experience in stopping unlawful business practices and have helped countless people who suffered financial or bodily harm caused by violations of consumer or product safety regulations.


Backed by their skills and years of trial experience, our dedicated trial attorneys have been very successful in prosecuting violations.  Our firm has more than 325 combined years of litigation and trial experience, and when a reasonable settlement is not possible, we won’t hesitate to take any case to trial.


Your success is our success.

WRRSV takes consumer fraud and product liability cases on a contingency fee basis.  This means we get paid only if a settlement fund is obtained or a judgment is collected, giving all injured consumers the opportunity for justice they deserve.


Consumer Fraud and Product Liability Cases

We are proud of the results we have achieved for our clients in the areas of consumer fraud and product liability.


Consumer Fraud

Businesses violate the law when they adopt deceptive practices during seemingly legitimate business dealings that result in financial loss to the consumer.  The amount of financial harm varies, and you do not have to suffer a devastating loss to receive the legal help you need.  We evaluate all consumer fraud cases, large and small.


We have represented consumers in a wide variety of cases, including fraud or misrepresentation in consumer transactions, privacy protection, and product misrepresentations.  We have also had extensive experience with insurance issues, including coverage disputes, violation of prompt pay statutes, and insurance bad faith litigation.


Products Liability

Manufacturers are required to adequately warn consumers about the risks associated with their products.  The harms resulting from defective products or insufficient or missing warnings can be significant and life-changing.


The loss of a hand as a result of a defective saw, the loss of vision because of a defective product, and traumatic brain injury resulting from a defective elevator are just a few examples of some of the product liability claims WRRSV has successfully litigated.
