Lawsuit: FieldTurf Duraspine Artificial Turf Potentially Defective

A FieldTurf class action lawsuit may be an option for residential customers who purchased defective artificial field turf and other synthetic playing surfaces. Issues with the product’s performance include breaking, splitting and thinning of field fibers after only a few years of use. According to a class action complaint filed in March 2017, FieldTurf continued to aggressively market and advertise the benefits of its synthetic field turf product, despite knowledge of potential defects. Residential customers who have purchased synthetic field turf from FieldTurf USA Inc., FieldTurf Inc. and FieldTurf Tarkett may be able to pursue a claim with the help of a consumer product attorney.

Plaintiffs: Popular Synthetic Playing Surface Failed in Just a Few Years

FieldTurf, manufactured and distributed by FieldTurf USA Inc., FieldTurf Inc. and FieldTurf Tarkett, is a synthetic playing surface designed to replicate the look and feel of real grass. Nearly two-thirds of all National Football League teams use FieldTurf installations for their stadiums and/or practice fields, and the playing surface is a popular choice for both amateur and professional football and soccer teams in the U.S. and Canada.

According to a class action lawsuit filed in the United States District Court Western District of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh Division, plaintiffs claim that individual fibers used in synthetic playing fields manufactured by FieldTurf were breaking, splitting and thinning at a number of fields across the United States, including fields in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Despite this knowledge, FieldTurf’s salespersons told prospective customers, including the plaintiff, that its “Duraspine artificial turf fields had an expected useful life of more than 10 years.” Instead, its products allegedly began failing in a fraction of that time. According to the lawsuit, FieldTurf knew that its representations about the durability and longevity of its synthetic playing surfaces were false as early as 2006.

How a FieldTurf Class Action Lawsuit Can Help

When a company engages in false or misleading advertising of its products, or otherwise commits deceptive trade practices, that company could be liable for any damage that result.

The actions of the defendants could constitute fraud and misrepresentation, breach of implied warranty, as well as violations of various state and local consumer protection laws, including Pennsylvania and New Jersey state laws.

Compensation may be sought for:

  • Replacement of affected artificial turf and synthetic playing fields
  • Loss of use
  • Costs incurred by owners, including loss of value, attributable to any wrongful conduct
  • Refund of the purchase price paid for affected services, including the purchase of new field turf
  • Attorneys’ fees

Residential customers who purchased potentially defective artificial field turf manufactured by FieldTurf may be eligible to pursue damages through a FieldTurf class action lawsuit and are encouraged to seek the advice of an experienced consumer fraud attorney to learn more about their rights and remedies.
