Lawsuit against Dodge

Guys,

Has anybody else received a class action lawsuit from the law offices of Richard C. Dalton ?????
They are suing Dodge over the 6.7 engine issues.
What bother me was the start of the letter stating its an ADVERTISEMENT !
And in paragraph 3 they state you could be charged attorney fees if they are unable to get any $$$$$ from Dodge.
What are your thoughts??????

These letters have been coming out since '08 I believe. I haven't heard of anyone taking them up on it. I think if you do, you loose your warranty

Not worth the electricity needed to make confetti out of it.

If they get enough people to sign on they might get Chrysler to pay a settlement, and then all of the "injured parties" will get about a $7.50 payout, after fees and expenses.

Wy2500,

Maybe we should all call the office to run up his 800# bill.

I get these occasionally from lawyers that are suing Walmart. Yes, you CAN get something IF they are successful and you joined with them. Sometimes, when the lawsuit is done, you get a check for $x.xx for past wage thingys. I have never been involved in the lawsuit but got a check for $1.27 for something to do with vacation time 3 years before. If I had joined that lawsuit, I could have gotten $10-$300 but I didn't figure $10 was worth my time to talk to a lawyer.

I'm not a fan of these types of lawsuits. If you had a problem with your vehicle or any other product, exactly how much good is a paltry check, which is often literally a few dollars or less, going to do for you?

These junk lawsuits drive up the manufacturer's expenses, which get passed on to us when we buy things. The ones who make a killing from these suits are the trial lawyers. That is why they push them with junk mail. As far as actually getting your problems corrected or getting you a meaningful amount of compensation, these suits are usually worthless. There may be a few cases where these suits actually do some good, but they generally are not worth the time and effort to fill out the paperwork and mail it in.

I got one of these one time in which the "damages" that each participant could expect to collect were estimated at 38 cents

There's one of these "Class Action Lawsuits" on damn near every engine made. The Ford 5.4 gas,6.0 Powerstroke,and 6.4 PS are the one's I see the most advertisements for. Most seem to be headed up by an attorney from Houston.
