New Orleans, LA asked in Products Liability, Insurance Defense, Intellectual Property and Small Claims for Louisiana

Q: What kind of attorney I need to sue Walmart for messing up my car?

I went to get a oil change and the mechanic told me he changed my oil and it would last me three months. When I tried to go to work the next morning I couldn’t. I had to turn my car off all of the oil leaked out. I had to catch a Uber to work. When I got off I had my car towed to Walmart.They took a look at it and said that Walmart didnt do it, it was the Walmart at the other location. So now I’m frustrated my car isn’t working properly and this is my only transportation. They put oil in my car that would last me for three days the mechanic said. I went to the other Walmart and they said it wasn’t them either. The manager told me give him 24 hours to look at the tapes and write down what happened from the other Walmart. I just don’t know what to do!

A: If you have a receipt make several copies. Never give the original. Get an estimate from a mechanic as to what is needed to fix it.
