LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — A California woman is suing a child car seat manufacturer, alleging breach of implied warranty, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.
Arriane Henryhand of Northridge filed a class action complaint, individually and on behalf of a class similarly situated, Jan. 9 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Dorel Juvenile Group, Inc. alleging false claims regarding the weight of a child that the defendant's car seat can support.
According to the complaint, Henryhand suffered monetary damages from being deceived into purchasing a juvenile car seat that was falsely advertised. The plaintiff alleges Dorel Juvenile refused to fix its product despite having several complaints from consumers stating that the car seat could not properly support a child who is well below the advertised maximum height and weight.
Henryhand seeks trial by jury, compensatory, exemplary, and statutory damages plus interest, disgorgement, all legal fees plus interest and any other equitable relief. She is represented by attorneys Lee A. Cirsch, Robert K. Friedl and Trisha K. Monesi of Capstone Law APC in Los Angeles.
