- Open-ended agreements that provide almost universal approval to the company to do with your information or data as they see fit
- Does the agreement feature ALL CAPS and almost literally make no sense? That may be intentional to make reading the document difficult
For owners of cars or trucks that are having problems, even a dealership’s “help” can come with exceptions that could severely harm you. While assisting owners of Ford Focus and Fiesta vehicles with problematic transmissions, we have found far too many people who unknowingly signed away their right to pursue a Lemon Law claim. Presented as the way to ‘get help’ covering an expensive repair or a high-value trade-in, dealerships can bury within an agreement conditions that prevent future litigation and that removes all liability for the manufacturer and dealer alike. That is how a tempting ‘$3000 dealer-assistance’ offer to cover another repair out of warranty could cost an owner potentially $30,000 or more if their vehicle qualified for a full buyback. For this reason alone, we believe it is critical that people who are having issues with their products read the documents on their own free time (not at the store or dealership) and even consider having an attorney review them before signing.
We absolutely want and need to see documents that could impact our clients’ rights. If you are an existing client and have received legal documents from the company or organization we are presently representing you against, know that this is not okay, and we need to speak with you as soon as possible to protect your rights!
