Redhibition is unique to Louisiana. Under Louisiana “redhibition” laws a seller warrants to you that the vehicle is free from defects and vices. A defect is redhibitory when it renders the vehicle useless or so inconvenient that you would not have purchased the vehicle had you know of the defect at the time of sale.

What is the minimum number of repairs or days out of service for me to pursue a “Redhibition” case against the seller and manufacturer of my vehicle?

Our fee is contingent upon making a recovery on your behalf. If we do not make a recovery then you do not owe a fee. If we make a recovery then our charge is based upon a percentage of the gross recovery and/or an agreed amount paid by the dealer and/or manufacturer.
The amount of damages you recovery are typically determined by the severity of the defect and the extent that the defect has impaired the use of the vehicle. Each case requires its’ own evaluation.
No. We provide a free consultation so that you can make an informed decision about your case.
As long as it takes to obtain the best possible result. Remember, if it is worth doing, it is worth doing right.
