Customer Question
I purchased a park...

I purchased a park model trailer back in 2013 new, but when we moved into it there was alot of repairs needed, because it was under warranty they repair some things, but there was some items they cannot fix, also the floor needs to be replaced we spoke with the lady and I have emails going back and forth, but since then she passed away. i spoke with another representative that said they are not going to do anything warranty has expired. i feel they should honor the warranty, this trailer has so many things wrong with it, we asked to have a representative come down but they refused. There was a squeak in the floor they said it had to be cut to fix the squeak, they send they repair man down and he said it is a manufacture defect, but the company still will not honor the warranty, they are alot of other things that were fix but still are not right. Do we have any recourse since i sent all the information before the warranty expired.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, you had FOUR (4) years under PA law from the time they did not properly repair the trailer to file suit against the manufacturer for their defective product under breach of warranty. Since you knew the issues were not fixed right, even if you try to file under product liability law, the statute of limitations to file suit is even shorter than breach of warranty as it is two (2) years.
I am afraid that since the warranty is expired and you did not pursue this back at the time when all the repairs were improperly made, your legal recourse is now expired due to the warranty expiring as well as the statute of limitations to sue for breach of the warranty.

Should I contact an attorney? I am a resident of Florida, a
I am a resident of Florida, a very youthful and active 77 year old independent widow who lives alone. I was at my kitchen sink preparing to feed my cat and when I turned to bend down to pick up her bowl, my Reef sandal picked up the area rug which came up and connected to the bottom of my sandal and I fell very hard on my backside on the kitchen floor. I have worn the flip flop sandals for 15 years and was going to go to the pool at my condo to swim following breakfast. The reef sandle has a bottle opener in the soles and as I turned it looped into a loop of the area rug (which was fairly new). I never thought the carpet would be a problem as I don't go barefoot and a toe wouldn't enter one of these loops. Both products however should be taken off the market and consequently I will be healing for many months at a minimum. I fractured my pelvis and my sacrum in the fall, resulting in extreme pain since the fall on March 4 and was transferred on March 7 from Palm Beach Gardens Med. Center to the Gardens Court and expected to be here for rehabilitation for several more weeks. Please tell me the action I should take for this setback in my life and how you suggest I proceed.
