Vince Megna--$518,000 Semi Truck Lemon Law Award

BringonGoliath Lemon law legal expert Vince Megna discusses a recent victory in a Wisconsin lemon law case involving a semi truck. The judgment was entered a few days ago in the sum of $293,000 for the plaintiff. There is a stipulation that the defendant will pay $225,000 in attorney fees. Total will be $518,000.  (Biggest verdict for a semi truck anywhere)

This case is very important because most states don’t have lemon laws that apply to trucks. Texas makes an attempt at some lemon law relief, but no other state does. Also, the Federal Magnuson-Moss Act does not apply to trucks because trucks are not consumer products.
Bottom line is that owner/operators are left without any legal recourse all over the country when their trucks are defective.

GOOD FOR YOU. THESE CORPORATIONS NEED TO KNOW THAT THEY CANNOT GET AWAY WITH KILLING THE LITTLE PEOPLE WITH THEIR SUBSTANDARD PRODUCTS. I WAS JUST AWARDED AN ARBITRATION IN MY FAVOR IN NYS AGAINST KIA MOTORS. NOW I WONDER IF THEY WILL PAY UP WITHIN THE REQUIRED 30 DAYS. DID YOU RECIVE YOUR AWARD YET???
