Breach of Warranty

The manufacture of a dangerous or defective product such that it opens the manufacturer and/or seller to a lawsuit. The consumer protections put in place during the 20th and 21st centuries have increased the number of lawsuits for breach of warranty. This is controversial, as consumer advocates tend to applaud this development, while manufacturers contend that the protections do not protect consumers but do add to costs, which raises prices.
