  • Misrepresentation in a legal contract occurs when one party involved in the agreement knowingly or willingly entered into the contract asserting a fact that is not true.

    For example, the ladder that was sold to your business was asserted to be safe to use for roof access. Later on, no matter if there was an incident that proved otherwise for your business, you find out that the company who sold the product to you knowingly lied about its safety for roof access. In this case, the business that sold you the product is guilty of misrepresentation.
