According to a report on Law.com, a recent wave of recalls of benzene-laced sunscreen and defective breathing machines have spurred massive interest among the plaintiffs’ bar. But, with dozens of lawsuits already filed, the question remains, when exactly does a recall lead to lawsuits? According to the information on Law.com, the answer isn’t simple.
The article says that whether a lawsuit happens or not depends on the product at issue, the details of the recall, and the defendant’s market capitalization. And while not all recalls lead to cases, companies are more than aware that they are possible.
