Wrentham, MA asked in Consumer Law, Products Liability and Small Claims for Massachusetts

Q: Wheel adapter set bought through Amazon from this company and my rear wheel fell off while going 65. Want reimbursement

I’m not the only one this is happened to according to the reviews I imagine it was just poor quality material as I have pictures of everything. The bolt heads were sheared off. Minimal damage done to truck and nobody hurt, but money had to be paid for a rental and other expenditures.

A: Forward a demand to Amazon and the company for a refund and all your expenses. Depending on how much is at issue and how much they offer, consider accepting a settlement to avoid the hassle of small claims and having to chase them to collect. Otherwise, if they refuse to pay or do not make an adequate offer file a small claims action.
