Consumer Protection

Companies owe their customers a commitment to safety. When they fail in that responsibility, Weitz & Luxenberg does everything it can to make sure those companies are held accountable.

How We Can Help

Experience has shown that dangerous products can injure consumers, inadequate corporate and computer security can allow customer privacy to be breached, and even a savvy consumer can fall victim to fraud. When companies fail in their duty to protect their customers, someone must step in.


Weitz & Luxenberg, a nationally recognized law firm, does just that. As a legal powerhouse of 500 attorneys, paralegals, and support staff members, we get clients the fairest compensation possible and hold companies accountable for their misdeeds.

"We just wanted to extend our deepest thank you to all the people who are the working on our case, the diligence of everyone involved is appreciated. The last check was a blessing... Thank you all and God Bless."

A manufacturing defect is when a product departs from its intended design when it’s being made. Even a seemingly well-designed product can injure consumers if it’s improperly manufactured.

Marketing Defects

Marketing defects are flaws in the way a product is marketed, such as improper labeling, insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings.
