Chelsea F. v. Ford Motor Company

Ventura County

Our client, Chelsea F. resides in Westlake Village, California, and purchased her 2013 Ford Fiesta from Kemp Ford, hoping for a reliable car to get her to and from work every day.  Like countless other Ford Fiestas, Chelsea saw her vehicle develop serious and scary transmission issues, such as transmission grinding, shuddering, hesitating, and other such issues.  We represented Chelsea in Ventura County Superior Court in her claims against Ford Motor Company. Fortunately, after litigating the case, Ford Motor Company relented and offered to pay her over four times what she paid for the car.  Of course, Ford Motor Company also picked up the bill for all of her attorney’s fees and costs as part of the negotiated settlement.
