Susan suffered from reflex sympathetic dystrophy, which confined her to a wheelchair. She had multiple problems with the wheelchair lift in her customized van that caused her to be stranded on the elevated lift on several occasions. The trial court dismissed her claims. Gadtke Law Firm appealed the dismissal to the Minnesota Court of Appeals and won, clarifying Minnesota law in favor of consumers and obtaining a recovery for Ms. Smith.
Kia offered a 10-year warranty on its new vehicle. A consumer must bring a breach of warranty lawsuit within four years of the breach. The trial court dismissed Swenson’s case because the lawsuit was started 5 years after the vehicle’s original delivery. Gadtke Law Firm appealed to the Minnesota Court of Appeals and won. Minnesota law is now clear that the four year statute of limitations on a breach of written warranty claim does not begin on vehicle delivery but after multiple repairs are attempted. Thus, vehicle manufacturers offering warranties in excess of four years now cannot escape warranty obligations after the fourth year of coverage.
Ms. Green leased a new BMW vehicle. The vehicle failed to properly accelerate. BMW refused to settle the case. Gadtke Law Firm tried the case to a successful verdict, obtaining a full refund of money spent on the lease for Ms. Green. BMW appealed the matter to the Minnesota Court of Appeals. Gadtke Law Firm defeated BMW’s attempts to reverse Ms. Green’s trial victory. After obtaining her full refund from BMW, Ms. Green now drives a different make and model vehicle.
The Graffunders bought a new Toyota vehicle. Shortly after taking delivery of that vehicle, the vehicle began exhibiting vibration and noise from the brake pedal area. Toyota refused to repair the vehicle under warranty. An independent mechanic confirmed a problem with the brake booster check valve. The trial court dismissed the Graffunder’s claims at trial. Gadtke Law Firm appealed to the Minnesota Court of Appeals and won. The matter settled thereafter.
Ms. Loxton purchased a new Kia vehicle. Shortly after delivery of the new motor vehicle, the paint began to show rust and the paint bubbled throughout the vehicle. Kia refused to re-paint the vehicle. Because Kia refused to settled the case, Gadtke Law Firm tried the case to a jury. After deliberating for only approximately 20 minutes, the jury awarded Ms. Loxton everything she requested after inquiring of the judge whether they could award Ms. Loxton more than her lawyers asked to be awarded. Kia paid Ms. Loxton’s attorneys’ fees and litigation costs.
Ms. Orr experienced repeated problems with her new Mercedes vehicle. Mercedes refused to settle the matter so Gadtke Law Firm tried the case to a jury. The jury awarded Ms. Orr a full refund of the monies paid towards the Mercedes vehicle. Mercedes also paid Ms. Orr’s attorneys’ fees and litigation costs.
