Municipal FieldTurf Lawsuits
Found on thousands of athletic fields across the world, FieldTurf is one of the most popular varieties of artificial turf playing surfaces on the market. The product, sold between 2005-2012, was designed to replicate grass more closely than other types of synthetic turf. It can be used in a variety of applications, such as on school athletic fields, within professional sports stadiums, and along airport runways.
However, the long-term durability of FieldTurf—one of the product’s key selling points—has recently been called into question following reports of product defects leading to faster-than-claimed product deterioration.
Claims of FieldTurf False Advertising and Product Failure
FieldTurf advertises a product life of 10-12 years, yet schools, communities, and other entities have reported the following defects within just three years of installation:
- Fibers breaking apart
- Matting across playing fields
Although FieldTurf’s manufacturer claims it to be less expensive and require less maintenance than natural grass, replacing defective FieldTurf after only a few years can be an expensive hassle for cities, counties, and school systems.
Potential Compensation for Premature FieldTurf Failure
If you purchased FieldTurf and experienced premature product failure, you may be entitled to claim the following damages:
- Cost of the defective turf
- Cost of replacement turf
- Triple the amount of damages for violations of the deceptive trade practices and attorneys’ fees
Our attorneys can help determine your rights and fight for the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.
