In 2017, e-commerce represented 13% of total retail sales. Consumers spent $453.46 billion on online retail purchases, up 16% from 2016. Amazon is by far the most prominent online retailer, accounting for 44% of last year’s e-commerce sales in the U.S.
Sites like Amazon have made it possible to purchase a plethora of items without ever having to step inside a brick and mortar store. The convenience and affordability of this option has increased the popularity of online shopping, and has even contributed to the closure of some traditional stores, such as Toys R Us. But convenience comes with a price. With the rise of online shopping comes uncertainty regarding product liability. If you purchase a product from an online store, who might be liable if you are injured by that product?
Looking at Amazon as the example, we have seen numerous cases in which plaintiffs have sued the online retailer for product liability. Most recently, State Farm sued Amazon over a defective vape battery sold on its site. The battery caught fire and caused more than $400,000 of damage to the home of one of State Farm’s policyholders. The insurance company is now attempting to recoup that cost, claiming that Amazon is liable because it sold the defective product. If past lawsuits involving Amazon’s liability for products sold on its website are any indicator, it does not seem likely that Amazon will be found liable. .
