Q: I bought a laptop which is defective and made my life miserable. How can i proceed to sue the company ?
I bought a yoga laptop in December 2015. I noticed the initial issue within 2 months of the purchase and in the month of June laptop crashed down which caused loss of personal data and financial data as well. I sent the laptop back to company repair center. After 15 days laptop crashed down again. Finally, Company agrees to refund the laptop price. However, I wanted to sue them for my data loss and every day trouble that i have gone thru with that laptop. Which made my life miserable. By the way i lost all my wedding selections due to the crash. How can i sue them?
A: I'm not sure there would be a case unless you can show that there was an internal problem that caused the crashing, and that you had good cause not to back up your information so that it would not be lost irretrievably. Your claim would be a breach of the warranty of fitness for its purpose. You can sue them in small claims court. Beyond that it's good to get an attorney.
