What is the gray market in product liability cases? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

The gray market refers to situations where a vendor purchases a product and then resells it for a discounted price. Common places where gray market products can be found include:

  • eBay and other online auction sites
  • Garage sales or flea markets
  • Fundraising events

If a victim is injured by a product they purchased from a gray market, then the victim may have issues when it comes to pursuing a product liability claim. If this is your situation, a Virginia defective product attorney can evaluate what type of case you may have.
