A Class Action Lawsuit Targets Defect on Interior Trim Pieces and Accuses Mercedes-Benz of Violating the Consumer Legal Remedies Act and Unfair Competition Law, Fraud by Omission, and Breach of Warranties
Bonita Springs, FL (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
Gilman Law LLP a leading national consumer protection and products liability law firm, is investigating claims involving chrome-plated interior trim pieces found in vehicles sold or leased by Mercedes-Benz.
According to a putative class action lawsuit filed in California federal court, Mercedes-Benz USA LLC is accused of selling and leasing cars with defective chrome-plated interior trim pieces that can lacerate passengers’ hands (Case number 2:12-cv-00936 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California).
The suit was brought on behalf of those who purchased or leased 2006-2011 Mercedes-Benz vehicles that were manufactured, distributed, and sold by Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC and/or its related subsidiaries and affiliates. The complaint described the defect as a mechanical failure involving defective chrome plated interior trim pieces that flake, crack, and peel, which create sharp edges on the chrome plated interior trim pieces that can cause lacerated fingers and injuries.
The complaint against Mercedes-Benz and related defendants alleges violation of the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, unfair competition, breach of express and implied warranties, and fraud by omission.
