Customer Question
I own a big...

I own a big rig, while on the road I needed a repair. As a result of shoddy work the ground wire to the batteries shorted out causing the batteries to melt resulting in over $5000 in repairs ( this may go considerably higher). Is there any legal recourse?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

CA, repair was done in Santa Rosa NM, at a TA travel center

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None at the moment—- took truck to shop and they are assessing problems

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not at this moment
