How To Sue Lowe's
In 2018, Brenda McMullen sustained physical and emotional injuries after stacked pavers fell on top of her while she was shopping at Lowe’s. She sued Lowe’s for damages and was awarded $13.14 million in compensation.
This case shows that it is possible for consumers and employees to stand up against large corporations such as Lowe’s. You may be entitled to sue if Lowe’s breached a contract, failed to resolve your complaint, and more. If your monetary claim is less than $25,000, you may file a small claims suit to recover damages.
Can You Sue Lowe’s?
Lowe's has had a fair share of lawsuits concerning its contracts and operations. The table below outlines valid legal grounds to sue Lowe’s.
|Personal injuries||Injuries suffered by an individual on account of negligence by Lowe's and its representatives are classified as personal injuries. They may include:
|Product defects||A customer reserves the right to return products discovered to be defective within the stipulated returns period.
The failure of Lowe's to issue a refund or replacement can become a court case.
|Delivery delays||Once the delivery delay time exceeds the time given to you and no reasonable explanation has been put forward, you have every right to complain or go to court.|
|Installation mishap||A generally unsatisfactory installation by Lowe’s agents that poses more damage for the customer is sufficient reason to file a lawsuit.|
|Warranty dishonor||If Lowe's fails to work on a product you have brought in for warranty services or replacement.|
|On-premises damages||If any of your personal properties are damaged while on Lowe's premises due to the company's negligence.|
|Security and privacy breach||Getting robbed or having your credit card details compromised while shopping at Lowe's.|
|Discrimination and harassment||Violation of your Title Vi rights or lack of proper working conditions for workers has been the bane of most employee lawsuits against Lowe's.|
