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.
Depending upon the nature and the severity of the defect, you may be entitled to:
- Rescission of the sale, which would include the purchase price, interest and costs to maintain the vehicle; or
- Reduction of purchase price which is the difference in the amount you paid for the vehicle and what a reasonable person would have paid had they known of the defect at the time of sale.
None! Unlike the “lemon law”, in order recover under “Redhibition” you need only show that a defect existed at the time of sale that rendered the vehicle useless or so inconvenient that a reasonable person who not have purchased the vehicle had they known of the defect or would have purchased for a reduced price.
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 evaluations.
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.
