Good Morning.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand I am very limited on what I can tell you and that you may have to get more detailed advice.

You can sue them for the damage that was done but you need evidence that they have fitted the incorrect brakes and that was the cause of the damage.

You will need to get a report form an independent repairer to say that it was the break pad that were the problem and what the cost of the repairs will be,

The you can send a letter of demand to the person that fitted them and ask them to pay the cost or you will sue.

The following link explains how to sue in QLD and the process.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
