New rulings against Amazon have left the company liable for products sold on its marketplace. When a defective device is sold on the Amazon marketplace, even by a 3rd party seller, the company is liable when an injury occurs.
California Update: The California Fourth District Court of Appeals found Amazon liable for any damages arising from a defective battery in a laptop. The women who purchased the product suffered 3rd degree burns from the battery, battery burns are serious and sometimes deadly injuries and Levin Simes Abrams is litigating hundreds of cases on behalf of burn and explosion survivors. (Bolger v Amazon.com LLC, No. 37-2017-00003009).

Amazon’s Commercial Liability Insurance requirements for Professional Sellers includes requirements that their coverage include:
Levin Simes Abrams is investigating all instances of injury from defective products sold on Amazon.com. We represent injured consumers who either purchased a product from a third-party seller on Amazon.com or from Amazon directly.
Further extending liability, Amazon resellers can allow Amazon to put their product shipped to Amazon warehouses in “co-mingled inventory”.
When inventory is pooled, similar products with the same product codes are placed together, regardless of the seller who sourced the item to Amazon. The result is that when you purchase a product from reseller A, you may receive a product instead supplied to Amazon by reseller B. At the time the consumer receives the product from Amazon.com, it is not possible to discern which reseller supplied the product to Amazon.
The result is any introduction of fake products, including substandard batteries with defects or batteries with labels exceeding their cell capacity, may through Amazon’s actions go to customers beyond the original supplier. Even a reseller that is certain their product is well manufactured and not mislabeled, may have customers shipped counterfeit or defective products.
As Amazon is notoriously poor at stopping the introduction of counterfeit or substandard products, this practice leaves both resellers and customers unsure of the product Amazon ultimately ships to consumers.
