Flea markets operate within the confines of a rented space and is open to various sellers on any given day, giving consumer multiple options regarding the purchases of used goods or new products. Flea market expert witnesses have background in management regarding various types of retail operations, as a lot of different types of merchandise are found for sale in flea markets.
Because of the wide variety of sellers and merchandise, flea market expert witnesses must be especially knowledgeable in the rules and regulations of the retail industry, as violations made on the premises may result in a lawsuit on behalf of the consumer, seller, or management. The same standards of care applies to flea markets as they would to any other retail situation, including laws regarding deceptive advertising or marketing, product defects, consumer products, pricing, business practices, and other issues related to retail.
Unlike permanent retail shops, the temporary status of flea markets requires permits and other areas of advance planning to legally rent out a space for the event. As with any type of event involving large groups of people, certain security measures should be implemented to enforce a safe level of crowd control. Flea market expert witnesses may be called upon to provide an expert opinion on premises liability if an accident occurred within the flea market area.
